Many people see our building with its giant columns and large red doors and wonder what such a place could stand for and what its services might be like. So what does happen behind the red doors? We have services every Sunday at 11 am and they are diverse. We are an open-minded community of spiritual seekers so our services differ from one week to the next.
There is usually music, stillness, and meditation or prayer but no set format. There might be candle-lighting and quiet reflection one week and a traditional sermon with hymns the week after.
Readings come from a wide range of sources. On any one Sunday, you might encounter modern poetry, ancient wisdom, the latest insights of science and the mystical writings of world faiths. You will not be expected to believe something that goes against your reason or your instinct but you will be invited to explore the world of mystery and meaning.
More than anything services are a time for us to think about our lives and the world around us in a safe and sacred space. The world is an awesome place full of wonder, joy and sorrow and with a measure of stress for each of us. Our Sunday services allow us to take stock and restore our spirits.
Sunday Services at Brighton Unitarian Church are at 11 am and last about one hour. They are conducted by our own members and visiting ministers and friends from nearby churches.
All are most welcome. If you do come we hope you have an affirming, thoughtful, moving, challenging, comforting, funny, transforming, profound, gentle, questioning or uplifting time!
Our services are held every Sunday at 11 am in the church.
Afterwards, we stay on for coffee and conversation.
Services are often also live-streamed on YouTube – see to the right.

EQUINOX & SOLSTICE SERVICE
Through the year we have services to mark each Equinox & Solstice. At these services we celebrate the earth and its seasons, and begin by lighting candles for the spirits of the North, East, South and West. Members of the congregation bring and share readings, objects from nature or simply talk about what the turning of the seasons means to them.
Live-streamed into church
This service will start at 10:30 am. Live-streamed
