Worship Works

13th-15th October 2023



Keeping congregations running and preparing worship is a busyactivity! There are many tasks to be done, but how do we make roomfor the spiritual in our work, and what does it mean to be spirit-led?This first annual weekend will be one of collegial conversations, deepsharing, and some in-service training to bring the spiritual into ourpractical work for our precious Unitarian faith.
Building on the work of former Unitarian Association for Lay Ministry,this weekend is open to all former UALM members, those who haveundertaken Unitarian College lay training courses, and any otherswho are involved in Unitarian lay leadership in any form.
Generously subsidised by the Hibbert Trust, the cost of the weekendis just £205, including all meals and accommodation, but not travel.We encourage people to approach their congregations and districtsfor further financial assistance. Looking forward to seeing you there!

As a modern institution UC is very much in touch with the reality. The training programme is tailor-made to fit each student’s individual circumstances. The content of the course is incredibly rich, covering a vast spectrum of topics, using various methods of teaching and student engagement. The ministry training programme perfectly balances being “down to earth” on one hand, and “looking up to the heavens” on the other, placing emphasis on the practical application of the acquired skills, knowledge and insights in the 21st century British Unitarian congregations. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that we still get the same rich learning experience under the restrictions posed by Covid.

But UC is much more than just an educational establishment. It’s a support network for those embarking on a journey of professional ministry. It’s a space where we, students, learn just as much from each other as we do from our tutors. It’s a space where new friendships are made and future professional relationships are formed."
