Project aims

Thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, non-religious church New Unity has transformed its Newington Green Meeting House into a fully accessible, free heritage space, sharing its radical history and encouraging visitors to think differently. The building – which was a hotbed of revolutionary thinking in the 18th century – holds stories of Richard Price, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Andrew Pritchard and most notably Mary Wollstonecraft – leading to it being described as the birthplace of feminism. New Unity hold their regular Sunday Gathering in the building as well as a range of programmes designed to help build a more loving and just world. It also hosts weddings and other ceremonies. The Newington Green Meeting House hosts a regular programme of events and exhibitions celebrating this history and offers a radically inclusive welcome to its local community and is open to the public Wednesdays-Saturdays 10-4pm.
