June and July 2016

RudesAnniversary Service

Our Anniversary Service will take place on Sunday July 17th 2016 at 3.00pm and will be led by Rev Sheena Gabriel. Traditionally, our Anniversary Service is a time when we renew acquaintances with those who are unable to visit us regularly and where we mark the ‘birthday’ of our congregation. Friends old and new are welcome to join us both for the service and for tea and cake and conversation afterwards.

Meditation Workshop

On Saturday 30th July we are pleased to offer a mediation workshop.  Arrive at 10.15 am for a 10.30 am start.  The workshop will be led by Richard Bober, from the Unitarian Meditation Fellowship and a member of Golders Green Unitarians.  We will explore a variety of different meditation techniques from walking meditation to the use of music.  The workshop will be suitable for those starting to explore meditation and those who wish to re-connect.  The workshop will be finished by 12.30 am and will be followed by a light lunch and the opportunity for discussion.  To book contact Duncan on 07771 609347 or email dvoice420@gmail.com.  Suggested donation £10.


Our boundary wall is now being rebuilt. We are able to rescue most of the original bricks and will circumvent the holly tree so as to (hopefully) avoid the problem of roots compromising its integrity again. During the Summer, we will investigate the possibility of improved disability access to the building and take this into consideration when we think about improving the carpark area. Also over the summer, we are to tackle the algae growth which is appearing on many of the external walls and also continue to manage the memorial grounds with an eye on attracting as much wildlife as we can. Volunteer gardeners are always welcome.

Folk Club

Our folk club will take a break through July and August and return in September. We thank all those who attend, both players and listeners. Not only do we have lots of fun but the financial contributions that are made form a healthy part of our monthly income. Thanks to all.

Progressive Christianity Network

The next session for this group will be Thursday July 7th. A period of contemplation will be followed by a discussion around the theme of ‘Salvation.’ Photocopies of the text that we will explore will be available on the evening or the book, Marcus Borg’s ‘Speaking Christian,’ can be purchased here. Participants are encouraged to bring other short texts that might contribute to the discussion.
