Social Activities


Details of our occasional social activities, meals, parties, concerts and outings are listed below.
We also have a regular coffee hour and time to chat after the Sunday service each week.

Church Trip to Southend
After the Service on Sunday 2nd June

Come and join us for an early summer trip to the seaside and an afternoon circle service with Southend Unitarians. There’ll be time for a train ride along the pier and an ice cream. Get in touch if you’d like more information or want to join us. The train tickets will cost around £14 but don’t let that put you off as we can help with fares if needed. We’ll be setting off after our morning service here in Kensington and travelling from Liverpool Street station.

Sunday Afternoon Tea Dance
Sunday 22nd September 2019 from 2-5pm

Join us for a tea dance with social dancing and actual tea and cake! Come and enjoy a gentle afternoon learning some basic social dancing steps with Rachel who can teach even the most left-footed people (there will be a beginners dance lesson at 2.15pm). This is an inclusive event for anyone including LGBTQI+ people and we ask that everyone is respectful to each other. The partnering at this tea dance is gender-neutral, meaning anyone can lead and anyone can follow, and we are completely body positive. The venue is wheelchair-accessible and has gender-neutral toilets. We ask you not to wear high heels as we need to protect the floor! You are invited to bring your own home-made cakes (clearly labelled), to raise money for our nominated charity, Stonewall Housing. At previous dances we have had a good selection of teatime treats including some vegan options.

Tickets: £15 on the door (free entry to members of Essex Church).
