Non-Subscribing Christians

We are a liberal Christian organisation, affirming the following four core principles:
  • Christ is the sole Head of the Church
  • Christians are united, not by creed, but by a common standard of behaviour after the example of Christ
  • Authority of conscience is matters of faith and it is our sacred  right Christians of whatever tradition and sharing                              
    a common baptism, can and should unite on this basis

The work of the Fellowship is overseen regarding faith by an House of Bishops and temporal by democratically-elected committee            
of members on Board of Elders currently drawn primarily from Christian Unitarian & Progressive Baptist congregations.

  • We meet every Sunday for sharing faith and friendship.
  • Our gatherings are open to members and non-members alike
  • Newcomers are always warmly welcomed.

  1. Free Christians are defined as open-minded followers of the teachings and example of Christ                                                        
    but without adhering to any specific creed or doctrine.
  2. Free Christians have a duty to use judgement in matters of faith.  
  3. Free Christians belief that doctrinal differences should not hinder common worship.
  4. Free Christians may not agree with each other on matters of theology
  5. The aim is the one of Christian fellowship to all who wish to worship God and follow the teaching of Christ.

  7. Free Christians are Universalist, believing that God's love extends to all.
  8. Free Christian respect someone of differing view
  9. Free Christians affirm they see God through the life of Christ.
  10. As a progressive groups within the trinitarian tradition with a regard on the nature of Christ..
