Have you wanted to start your spiritual journey but don’t know where to begin?
You’re in the right place.
Let us not be afraid to seek meaning in our lives.
Let us have no fear to enter the spiritual dimension of ourselves and see where it leads.
The National Unitarian Fellowship exists to promote fellowship and understanding and to provide a channel of communication between people who value a free and positive approach to religion, which sets no dogmatic limits to the individual’s quest for spiritual truth.
It seeks to meet the needs of Unitarians and others who are in sympathy with this approach and who do not attend a Unitarian Church or Fellowship. It also offers to ministers and members of Unitarian congregations and Fellowships an opportunity for wider communication with others having a concern for religious values.

What is Unitarianism?
- is a religious movement in which individuals are free to follow their reason – there is no pressure from creed or scripture;
- grew out of Christianity and sees Jesus as a man to be followed not a god to be worshipped;
- is open to change in the light of new thought and discoveries.
Unitarianism is a liberal faith, and we understand how busy the modern person is. Join us and other people with similar outlooks to share and exchange a wide range of opinions, views, news and more.
