On most Sundays during the church year, we offer Sunday Forums before service in lower Gage Hall.  The Forum provides members and friends of the Unitarian Church in Charleston with thought-provoking talks and discussion sessions, mainly on topics of general interest but also on topics pertinent to the church.  They occur from 10:00-10:50 a.m.   Childcare is available in the Annex.  Please check the Forum schedule or see Sunday’s list of activities for further details.

By attending the Sunday morning programs members and friends of the church make the program worthwhile. It is especially helpful when attendees recommend speakers.  Simon Lewis runs the program and is always open to ideas and/or volunteers to help!  He can be reached at: lewiss@cofc.edu.
