At 8pm on Wednesday 20 November, Oat Street Unitarians will be holding a special service in honour of Transgender Day of Remembrance, (TDoR), a day marked annually in memory of those who have lost their lives as a result of transphobic violence. TDoR comes at the end of Transgender Awareness Week, during which a number of events take place every year to raise awareness of the transgender community and the issues that it faces. Many other Unitarian congregations worldwide take part in these events as well as marking TDoR. Even if you have never visited the Chapel before, you are more than welcome to join us on 20th for this very special occasion.
Oat Street Unitarian Chapel already supports the popular “Malvern Transformers” after-school children’s group that runs every Friday in term time for children up to Year 5. This is an activity group ideal for all children who want to make a difference in the world, whether big or small.
We are very pleased to announce that Transformers will now be launching in Evesham in January 2020 as a monthly Sunday morning gathering, and we are running a taster/sampler session from 1045-1200 on Sunday 24 November to which everyone is very much welcome.
Transformers is about making a difference in a small, or big, way.
Transforming Ourselves: Searching for truth and meaning. Recognising the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
Transforming Others: Striving for justice, equity and compassion in human relations. Accepting others and providing encouragement to spiritual growth.
Transforming the World: Working for peace. Caring for our world. Respecting the interdependent web of all existence.
Each session comprises: Sharing News, games, videos, crafts, a discussion and, of course fun!
The regular Evesham monthly sessions start on 12th January 2020 and will cost £1.50 per session. For further details, please contact:

As usual, our Remembrance Sunday service starts ten minutes earlier than normal to allow for the Last Post and silence at 11 am.
Worcestershire based singer-songwriters Colin Pitts and Mike Weaver will be joined by the highly acclaimed Emi McDade for the latest in the series of popular ‘Folk Treble’ evenings at Oat Street Chapel on Saturday 16th November.
Mike and Colin are well known to us at Oat Street from previous shows. Emi is a talented young keyboard player and songwriter from Highnam, near Gloucester, who has performed on stages and at festivals all over the UK. Praised for her unique vocals, she returns to Evesham for the first time in three years. This sounds like a great night out to us….
Doors open 7.30pm, music starts 8pm. There is a public car park adjacent (free after 6pm). We don’t have a bar, but audience members may bring their own alcoholic or soft drinks. Tickets £9 online in advance or £10 on the door from this link.
