We currently offer drop-in Community Art sessions in the hall once a month on Thursday afternoons. These are informal sessions for people wanting to try their hand at drawing and painting – all materials are provided and there is no charge (though a small donation to cover costs is appreciated). People are also welcome to just drop by for a cup of tea and a natter. Click here for more info…
Book Group at the Unitarian Chapel
We have started a book group, meeting monthly locally. We discuss a wide range of modern novels and literary classics. Click here for more info…
We run occasional study and self-development groups covering a range of topics. Previous groups at Meadrow have included – ‘Build your own Theology’, ‘Soul Poetry’, ‘Spirituality in Everyday Life’, Ageing, Parenting, Work-Life issues, ‘Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life’, ‘Spiritual Practice’, ‘Simply Pray’ and ‘Mindfulness based Stress Reduction’ courses.
On the first Sunday of each month, after the service, some members of the congregation organise a scenic walk in the local area, followed by a pub lunch or picnic.
Workshops and Concerts
We also host occasional Saturday workshops and concerts.

The Chapel at Billingshurst (monthly Folk music)
Some of our members enjoy visits to the Chapel at Billingshurst (our closest Unitarian congregation) for their monthly evenings of folk music – usually on the first Saturday of the month:
Twice we have enjoyed a long weekend away at the “Nightingale centre” – the Unitarian holiday and conference centre in Great Hucklow in the Peak District – and once at the Othana Centre in Dorset. These weekends are a great way to get to know other members of the congregation and include a range of recreational and creative activities.
