Solidarity with Ukraine 

The General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. 
We condemn the unjustifiable attack on Ukraine and call for an immediate withdrawal of Russian forces and for an immediate ceasefire.  
We urge the UK Government and devolved administrations to offer whatever humanitarian aid is possible to prevent catastrophe in the region. Safe corridors for the passage of civilian refugees are now an urgent priority and we urge the UK Government and devolved administrations to offer safe haven and refuge to those fleeing this war.  
Warfare creates terrible suffering, reinforces social inequality and causes incalculable environmental damage. We resolve to prioritise peace and peacemaking in our Unitarian worship and culture. 


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.
