We welcome all
who seek spiritual meaning in life,
all who believe religion is wider than any one faith
Sunday service (25th Febuary 2024, 11am): Homeland
All are welcome to this Sunday's congregational service (25th February, 11am) which will be led by BUC Minister-elect Jennifer Sanders on the theme of "Homeland”.
This is a congregational service so we will have the opportunity of listening to several people from the congregation on their thoughts on this subject.
We will also gather for community lunch after the service so if you can please bring something to share. We will have some simple soup and bread and fruit arranged so anything that you would like to add to this would be welcomed.
Please note that this service will NOT be live-streamed.
All are welcome.
'Back to Life' by Christine Clark-Lowes
This interesting and well-researched book by Christine Clark-Lowes, a BUC member, tells the stories of the people named on plaques in our beautiful Grade II listed church.
There is a reference copy in the church, and copies are available in the church office in return for a donation to the church.
How to support Brighton Unitarian Church from the comfort of your sofa
Just a reminder that the church is partnered with Easy Fundraising if our members and friends would like to sign up in order to generate donations for the church as they shop online. This works a bit like the Amazon Smile scheme which recently closed but with many more choices as to where you shop. In fact Easy Fundraising is the UK’s biggest charity shopping site.
Launched in 2005, their community of over 2 million supporters have raised over £42 million for thousands of causes across the UK. Easy Fundraising partners with over 7,000 brands who will donate part of what you spend to a cause of your choice. It won’t cost you any extra. The cost is covered by the brand.
Once you’ve set up your account, you’ll have the option to install the EF browser extension which is called the Donation Reminder. It will pop up on every retailer site where a donation is available - which means you don’t have to remember to go via the EF website to do your shopping, just shop online as normal!

ABOUT OUR CHURCH
We welcome all who seek a better life through spiritual and intellectual exploration. We have respect for all faiths, coupled with a modern religious outlook that encourages freedom of individual thought and conscience. We welcome all who believe that religion is wider than any one sect and deeper than any one set of opinions.
Our services draw their inspiration from diverse sources and the spiritual content depends on the service leader. Service leaders include members of the congregation, visiting ministers, and members of other Unitarian churches. Most services include an address, music, prayer or meditation and a quiet time for personal reflection. Readings come from the scriptures of the world faiths and wisdom traditions, philosophy and from contemporary literature and science.
This wonderful, creative and sacred space right in the heart of Brighton has been opening its doors to worshippers and musicians for 200 years.
Many well known local musical groups practise and perform here including Good Vibe Choir, Wham Jam Community Choir, Slavic Voices (Brighton) Choir. We also host the Sussex Musicians' Club's monthly concerts (now in its 100th year), African drumming workshops, monthly Tango Milonga Sábados, Soulful Singing workshops and our own Friday lunchtime fund-raising concerts.
