About Us

Bradford Unitarians are a spiritual community with many different beliefs.

We find our unity in shared values such as:

  • The nurturing of the spiritual dimension
  • The use of reason and honest doubt in the search for truths
  • Constructive tolerance and openness towards the sincerely held beliefs of others
  • Peace, compassion, justice and democracy in human affairs
  • Reverence for the earth and the whole natural system of which we are a part

We are a church for the open-minded. We do not impose a particular creed or set of beliefs, instead we come together to share our commitment to the spiritual journey and our values of love, service and religious freedom. Our services may feel familiar in format if you have attended a traditional church – they usually include readings, music, stories and times of prayer or meditation. However, individual worship leaders have freedom to choose their own content and style. We welcome families and often include children’s activities within or alongside the service.

The modern, airy building has excellent acoustics, an organ and a grand piano. There is disabled access and an induction loop for hearing aid users. There is also plenty of parking, both in our own car park and free on-street parking.

Our members support many local and national initiatives, such as: The Peace Museum, Bradford Toy Library, The Trussell Trust (foodbank), Send a Child to Hucklow (breaks for underprivileged children), “Standing on the side of Love” (Campaigning for Equal Rights – Unitarian churches and chapels represent over half the places of worship licensed for equal marriage) and Interfaith Projects among others.

We are part of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches.
