What is a Unitarian?
A Unitarian is a person who supports unity, universalism and the one-ness of humanity, the earth and the cosmos. Unitarians have no creed or imposed dogma. Instead, we strive to support all spiritual journeys without judgement. Within community, Unitarians stress individual freedom of belief, reason in religion, and dream of a united world community and social justice.
The history of Unitarianism prides itself in “Radical Roots” and grew out of the Protestant Reformation in Poland and Transylvania in the 1560’s. Unitarianism in Britain lies in the dissenting Christians of the 17th and 18th centuries who, having read the bible for themselves, began to question some of the orthodox doctrines of the church. Unitarians began to worship God as a Oneness and came to cherish individual conscience as the authority in matters of religion.
Whilst honouring our history, Unitarians today hold that there are as many paths through life as there are people, and we help each other to find our way. We acknowledge our roots within the dissenting Christian tradition, but we learn from many ancient wisdoms, philosophy, science, art and poetry. We strive to offer a wide and inclusive welcome.
