This weekly programme, led by Unitarian minister Rev. Andy Pakula, will run for most of the first half of 2011. The sessions provide introductory overviews to each of the major world religions.

While history will be touched upon, the major emphasis will be on the lived experience of being a practitioner of particular religions - including beliefs, mythology, practice, etc. Some sessions will include guest speakers who can speak with authority from within particular religious traditions.

Participants are welcome to attend all or just some of the sessions. Thursdays, 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Unity on Upper Street in Islington.
Sessions are free for New Unity members and £4 for non-members (concessions £2).
