Unitarian & Free Christian Bible Discussion & Talks
The Unitarian & Free Christian Bible Discussion Group is an independent project that started during lockdown. It is intended to promote and nurture the Bible as a resource throughout the Unitarian & Free Christian denomination.
UCA members were involved in setting up the group, and other UCA members regularly attend, but the group is for everyone interested in discussing the Bible in accordance with Unitarian values and principles of tolerance and freedom, and so has participants from across Unitarianism and beyond. You don't have to be a Christian or Theist, and you don't need to be an expert.
There is a Facebook group which welcomes new members, subject to their explaining their reason for wanting to join and their willingness to abide by the group's rules.
Members of the group meet on Mondays at 6.30pm for an hour long discussion, led by someone different each week. There's plenty of opportunity for everyone to have their say and all views are listened to and respected.
As well as the weekly discussion the group also hosts Bible Talks on special occasions. This is an opportunity for someone with specialised knowledge or a special interest to give a fuller talk, followed by q&a. The first series of Bible Talks was held between Easter and Pentecost in 2021.
The UCA supports this group through publicising and joining its events, as well as allowing the group use of its Zoom account.
