At present our services are suspended due to the coronavirus epidemic. We will update this website with further information when the church is able to reopen.
Heart and Soul Online: Face-to-face Heart and Soul gatherings are suspended as of March 2020 due to the current restrictions in place to limit the spread of coronavirus. However, a network of Unitarians in the UK and beyond are offering ONLINE Heart and Soul gatherings several times a week using Zoom. If you would like to participate please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know when they are taking place so you can sign up and join in. Numbers for each gathering are limited to twelve but more and more gatherings are being offered on different days and times by a number of different facilitators so we hope that you will be able to find a convenient opportunity to experience Heart and Soul from the comfort of your home.
Since the start of 2013, we have been holding regular ‘Heart and Soul’ spiritual gatherings on the first Thursday evening of each month at Essex Church. These contemplative gatherings are led by members of the congregation. The evening ends with time for refreshments (usually including cake!) and fellowship so it is a good opportunity to get to know people at a deeper level. If you feel enthusiastic about the prospect of midweek services and experimenting with different forms of worship then please do come along and support us with your presence or get involved. We usually meet downstairs in the church library (picture below shows a special ‘Heart and Soul’ in the park).
