The Unitarian is published ten times a year, with double issues in July and December. It has been running since 1903. It is an independent publication which tries to encapsulate the diversity-in-unity of the Unitarian movement.
The Unitarian has a loyal following and includes A View from Essex Hall (a regular column by Derek McAuley, the Chief Officer of the General Assembly of Unitarian & Free Christian Churches) and Events at a Glance (a brief guide to events taking place in the Unitarian community). It also offers reflective articles on current issues, profiles of Unitarian churches and groups, and news and views of the Unitarian movement.
The Unitarian movement is a diverse grouping of people who come together to form spiritual communities, and includes theists, humanists, Pagans, Buddhists, atheists, Unitarians, Free Christians (non-doctrinal Christians), mystics, and people from other faiths who have found that they cannot accept the creeds of their original faiths, but still want to explore their spirituality and engage in spiritual community. What holds us together? Our shared values of freedom, reason and tolerance, our commitment to social justice, and our desire to explore spirituality with open-minded fellow-travellers.
The Unitarian is published by the Manchester District Association of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches.
