Who We Are

Cheltenham & Gloucester Unitarians meet at Bayshill Unitarian Church, and our services take place in what used to be our Church Hall, behind the original church building, which is now occupied by the Cotswold Auction Company.  (See How To Find Us)

We are a community of diverse individuals who recognise the deeply personal nature of belief, and gather to nurture one another’s lifelong spiritual growth. Our guiding principles are love, joy, freedom, mutual respect, peace and justice.  We invite anyone regardless of age, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation to join us for Sunday services and any of our other activities. You will be very welcome to join us for spiritual enquiry, worship, community building, and more!

The Cotswold Group

Cheltenham & Gloucester Unitarians are members of the Cotswold Group which comprises several churches and fellowships, including Evesham Unitarians, Cirencester Unitarians, and Herefordshire Unitarians at Ross-on-Wye.  We all share the same Minister, Reverend Don Phillips, so as he obviously can’t be in 4 places at once (!) he takes a morning service at one venue at 11.00AM, and an afternoon service at another, at 3.00PM, and any of the other churches he can’t attend that day usually bring in another worship leader to take their service.

So refreshing, relaxed and warming! People of all ages all enjoying spiritual time together and sharing their many diverse views and experiences.
