An Atheist, a Buddhist and a Christian walk
into a bar…ahh, I mean…walk into a
church…and onto a panel!
What happens next?
I’m afraid you’ll simply have to be there to
We live in a world…
…in which reality has been shredded into
opposing, mutually incompatible belief
…in which alternative worldviews and
alternative facts abound.
How can we, as individuals, as communities,
as a world, regain the experience of a shared
How can we move beyond mere belief, to that
unifying “something” which transcends

One of the great challenges for the UCFORUM has been how to respond effectively to the many people who request information about progressive congregations and individuals in their area. Some would like to join a church where diversity, inclusivity and exploration are practiced. Others are looking for intellectual challenge in the teaching and activities of a congregation. Many are just looking for other individuals like themselves who think outside the box, or cannot abide literal, non-critical interpretations of scripture. Often people in the latter group don’t want to associate with a church because of their experiences. They just want to join a small group of people that can encourage each other in their life journey. There is obviously a significant number of people looking for progressive friends.
The Journeying Series has been running at Blackwood UC for several years and seeks to broaden faith and spirituality beyond its often narrow confines. Events such as the spirituality of sustainability, indigenous spirituality, and spirituality in art and music. The next one is Journeying through Science and Wonder, and the final one, with a group of 3 panellists, is on journeying “Beyond Belief.”
Each session begins at 5pm with wine and cheese
Science and Wonder 5-7pm, Sunday 19th September
A journey into the wonders of existence. A journey into the wonders of life. A journey of discovery in which science reveals new ways of looking at such spiritual concepts as meaning and purpose, “soul,” and even human destiny.
Beyond Belief 5-7pm, Sunday 21st November
We live in a world…in which reality has been shredded into opposing, mutually incompatible belief systems, in which alternative worldviews and alternative facts abound. How can we, as individuals, as communities, as a world, regain the experience of a shared reality? How can we move beyond mere belief, to that unifying “something” which transcends belief?
Please be aware that COVID restrictions mean that we are currently limited to 32 people per session, so booking early is a good idea!
