Coronavirus and Online Services:

To comply with Government guidance to control the spread of the virus, Church will remain closed until further notice. This decision is being 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 phone on 07341932558 to be put in contact with our Minister, Rev Dr Shannon Ledbetter.
For now, know that we are all thinking of each other.

Whilst our building is closed we are streaming services together with our sister churches in Padiham and Chorley. These services can be found on our YouTube channel.


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.

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.
