Unitarians explore the meaning of life and encourage freedom of thought by giving respect to all religions and philosophies

Welcome to Our Website

Cheltenham & Gloucester Unitarians are a community that exists to celebrate and explore the meaning of life and encourage freedom of thought by giving respect to all religions and philosophies. Everyone is welcome to join us irrespective of gender,  faith, ethnicity or sexuality.


Regretfully due to the Coronavirus situation we have decided to SUSPEND SERVICES at Bayshill Unitarian Church in Cheltenham and Gloucester Services at Barnwood Reading Room until further notice.  However, we are offering a WEEKLY ON-LINE SERVICE  using Zoom on Sundays at 11.00 am.  Please see the SERVICES AND EVENTS page (What’s On) for details of how to access this, as well as our occasional Zoom virtual coffee events on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. 

Please bear with us in these difficult times, we will reconvene whenever it is deemed safe to do so, and in the meantime we wish all of you the best of health!

We normally meet at Bayshill Unitarian Church, in the centre of Cheltenham, in what used to be our Church Hall, behind the original church building. Our services are usually held in Cheltenham every Sunday at 11.00 am, (BUT NOT AT PRESENT, SEE NOTICE ABOVE) led by our Cotswold Group Minister, Reverend Mark Hutchinson, or by members of our congregation, or visiting worship leaders. We also lead regular services/gatherings in Gloucester on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 3.00 – 4.00 pm (BUT NOT AT PRESENT). Our new Gloucester venue is Barnwood Reading Room, 146 Barnwood Road, Gloucester, GL4 3JT.

Please explore our site to learn more about who we are and what we do.
