Sunday Service

Unitarians believe in the 'priesthood of all believers' and services may be led by members of the congregation, visiting worship leaders or the Minister. Because of this, there is great variety in Sunday services. 

A service will usually begin by lighting the chalice, the symbol of our Unitarian faith, followed by readings, music, an opportunity for prayer/meditation, and a sermon or address. The readings may come from a variety of sources from religious texts to poetry, philosophical writings or blog posts. We sing, sometimes accompanied by a pianist and sometimes to recorded music. Our hymns and songs may have familiar traditional tunes or specially composed music, with the lyrics are inclusive and uplifting.
