Our Candle Lighting Service is one of the most popular meetings of the year. It is filled with light, readings and affirmations and of course lots of carols. People come from far and wide to join us in celebrating the birth of the Christ child in Jesus, and the deeper recognition of the Christ energy being born more deeply in us.
You are warmly invited to join us. And if this is your first meeting or you want to bring someone new to Unity, this is the perfect service to come to. You will be warmly welcomed and we feel sure enjoy a time that blesses you as you prepare for Christmas.
We would love to meet you in person, or online, so do come along, meet like-minded people and share with us an afternoon of spiritual connection and upliftment.
There is no charge, just come along.
The Friends Meeting House is the perfect place to meet and we look forward to welcoming you there on Sunday. Parking is in the main multi-story car park off the A4, near Sainsburys. It is free on Sunday’s and is a 5 minute walk from the meeting rooms on West Street. Alternatively it is a 10 minute walk from the station.
Joining us onlineJoin the service live online
If you live too far away to join us in person, you can connect using Zoom a free internet conference room. Download our programme so you can join in with the affirmations as they are spoken. We also recommend you have your own candle to light and feel even more part of the service.
We look forward to sharing our next Sunday gathering with you.
Third Sunday of each month at 3pm ( refreshments available from 2.15pm)
Our Unity gatherings are a time of reflection, music, discussion, Daily Word readings, prayer and meditation, followed by a time of refreshment and fellowship. Through shared ideas and quiet stillness, we open to the deeper knowing that we are spiritual beings having human experiences, finding ways to experience lives of fulfilment in health, prosperity, loving relationships and peace.
Every person is warmly welcomed into the group, encouraged to take part as much as they are comfortable with, as we get to know each other at a deeper level. Using Unity material, ideas and practices, we are enabled to become the truth we seek.
At Unity you are loved, accepted included and celebrated just as you are. All are warmly welcome, everyone is a child of God and we greet you in this way.

Walking directions from Maidenhead Station:
As you leave the station, walk down through the car park to the main street, cross over the road at the traffic lights, and at the next immediate set of next traffic lights cross over on the left side. Walk up the pedestrian street which is King Street, past the David Lloyd Fitness Centre and the Odeon Cinema, both on the left. Cross over the pedestrian crossing, continue up King Street. When you get to the top of the road, instead of turning right to walk down the pedestrianized High Street, keep walking ahead and you will walk through to West Street.
