The Youth Programme follows the Unitarian ethos that we are all free to explore our own beliefs and views on life. The values of respect, tolerance and compassion towards others are reflected in the activities we offer. The youth leaders aim to create safe spaces where young people can explore their identity and direction in life. Participants are encouraged to celebrate diversity and difference in each other whilst cherishing all that binds people.
The aim is to see young people relaxing, laughing and having fun together. Everybody’s thoughts and opinions join together helping to create a rich and inspiring atmosphere. Activities are open to those who want to join a welcoming and encouraging community. The participants who attend the events weekends include Unitarians and those of other faith traditions and none. Most of the events are held at The Nightingale Centre, Great Hucklow in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside.
Within congregations, children and young people can take part in the Chalice Award programme.
