To Bless and Be Blessed

Blessing is part of our everyday language – someone sneezes and we say ‘bless you!’ – someone does something sweet or kind (or perhaps naïve) and we say ‘oh, bless him’. But what does it mean, to bless? And how might we adopt a practice of blessing in our everyday lives?

Rev. Dr. Jane Blackall is Ministry Coordinator with Kensington Unitarians at Essex Church in London, UK. She is the long-standing organiser of Hucklow Summer School, an annual residential week for Unitarian adult religious education, and is an enthusiast for small-group ministry and the exciting possibilities that doing church online has opened up over the last few years. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, birdwatching, and watching cycling races from the comfort of her armchair.

This Sunday we will have a multi-platform service. You can attend in-person, OR you can also attend via our online Zoom option. Those attending in-person will follow our in-person gathering guidelines including wearing high-quality face masks.

Children are welcome with their parents in the sanctuary. A small creativity and play area is provided for very young children inside the sanctuary. Currently no separate in-person classroom space, this includes no separate programs for children or separate nursery care area.
