Christmas at Brighton Unitarian Church is a unique time that brings together our Christian heritage and our Universalist outlook.
On December 8th our member Stephen Crowther will lead a service on the theme of Advent. Unitarians celebrate Jesus as one of the great religious teachers and mystics, and on Sunday December 15th we celebrate his birth with a traditional Carol Service. All are welcome to stay after the service for mulled wine and mince pies.
On December 22nd our Solstice Service marks the turning of the year. We will be lighting candles for the Spirits of Air, Earth, Water and Fire, and celebrating the gifts of nature in deepest winter. On Sunday Dec 29th our service will be led by our member Francis Clark Lowes on a theme of ringing out the old year and ringing in the new.
Our first service of 2014, on January 5th will be a quiet reflective service on the theme of Hope.
For details of all our services In December and January please see the services calendar.
In every child God comes down to earth. In every child the 'promise' of God is repeated. Every child is nurtured by the Holy Spirit - that mysterious, creative and healing essence we call Life. The Christ Child is the symbol of our human potentiality; like the oak in the acorn.
On Wednesday 18th December we'll be Carol Singing on the church steps (in aid of our Building Fund). Come along for 5.30 and sing carols for an hour.
Music provided, Xmas hats and/or light-up twinkly things always welcome! And if you're able to bring some mulled wine and mince pies to share, they would be much appreciated.
Our book Unitarians Talking is a fascinating portrait of Brighton Unitarian Church seen through the eyes of our congregation.
Christmas Offer! We still have some copies which are now reduced to £5 each.

We are closer to God when we are asking questions than when we think we have the answers.
