About

The Chapel 4Cs

‘The Chapel’ is the home of a community of people dedicated to providing a range of activities and events that make space for the human spirit to flourish. Our work is based upon the themes of contemplation, creativity, compassion and community.

 Contemplation

We support contemplative living. By this, we mean encouraging activities that allow people to step away from some of the pressures of everyday living and perhaps create time to take stock or find peace. This might include activities such as meditation, prayer, yoga, discussion forums or simply sitting quietly in the tranquillity of our garden.

Creativity

At The Chapel, we value and seek to support creativity. Be it visual or performing arts; creative thinking and the exploration of alternative ways of viewing the world, we support people in finding ways in which their creativity can flourish.

Compassion

The Chapel works in the spirit of compassion. We want to encourage ways of living where care for ourselves is matched by our care for each other, wider humanity and our natural world. We work for justice and fairness in all walks of life.

Community

Through all that we do, we hope to develop a spirit of community with each other. The Chapel is a place where you will find people who operate from a spirit of generosity and openness.

Some of our activities are organised by members of The Chapel and some are run by people who use our building for events that are in keeping with our vision and ethos. You will find details about our current activities on this website and on promotional materials in the Billingshurst locality. As examples, we offer musical events such as our Folk Club; a meditation group and retreat days; art and creative writing classes; exhibition spaces and yoga groups.

The Chapel is also home to local Unitarians who hold liberal, inclusive services twice monthly which explore and nourish spiritual development through multi-faith and secular readings, singing, meditation, prayer and talks.

The Chapel is registered for weddings and other ceremonies such as naming services and funerals. We have experienced officials who can help to plan and deliver life events in keeping with shared beliefs and values.

We are always looking to expand our range of activities and are open to suggestions of how we might do this: simply make contact.
