We are an open, friendly community extending a warm welcome to all – including families with children.  We are a fully accessible venue, with modern facilities.

Hire a room with us.

While rooted in the Christian tradition, we are open to wisdom from other sources, and our services reflect this breadth.   Social justice is a central concern for us.

We are affiliated to the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, whose stated Object is:  “To promote a free and inquiring religion through the worship of God and the celebration of life;  the service of humanity, and respect for all creation; and the upholding of the liberal Christian tradition.”

This Church is linked with Padiham and Chorley Unitarian congregations in a new initiative, the Lancashire Collaborative Ministry, which aims to renew the Unitarian cause in east Lancashire.

Coronavirus, a statement:

As you are probably aware, the Government has issued guidelines to help control the spread of Coronavirus:
To comply with Government guidance on social distancing measures to control the spread of the virus, Church will be closing for the foreseeable future and with immediate effect until further notice. This decision will be kept under close review, taking into account further developments and official advice as it becomes available.
We know that this will be disappointing, but we are sure you will understand that we are dealing with an extremely unusual situation and need to take action to try to ensure the health and safety of users of our building.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact us on Facebook @RawtenstallUnitarians, email, or leave a message on our church answerphone which will be closely monitored. We will also be contacting congregation members over the next few days to give further information and offer support.
We hope that we will be able to re-open before too long, but also need to acknowledge that this situation may continue for some time.
For now, know that we are all thinking of each other.


We look forward to hearing from you!
