About Us


Lewisham Unity is a small but growing Unitarian church with strong community values that is looking to strengthen its ties to the local area and make the most of the skills, passions, and interests within its network of members and friends. Its building is a converted 1930s house on Bromley Road, with a large meeting room on the ground floor that is used for Sunday gatherings and certain projects by the congregation and otherwise rented to community groups. It also has a good-sized rear garden that is managed by a gardening group. We are looking to develop our community and to use our assets to best support those around us.

We are an equal-opportunity employer and encourage those who are differently-abled and/or who identify as BAME, LGBTQi, or are from any religious background (or none) to apply. 


To apply: Please send a covering letter and cv to Ann Howell (Chair), 

Deadline: Friday, 21st April, 2023
