We've Got Mansfield, Ashfield & Sherwood Covered


Find out about religious rebels

Posted onPosted on 14th Aug

Unitarians at the Old Meeting House Chapel, Mansfield, hope to mark the National Heritage Open Days Weekend on 18th-20th September by marking the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Pilgrims.

There will be a series of events entitled Religious Rebels Of The East Midlands, featuring people like Robert Browne, George Fox; William Brewster, the postmaster at Scrooby; John Whitlock, from St Mary’s, Nottingham; Edward Whiteman, of Burton-on-Trent, who was burnt at the stake for his beliefs, as well as those who founded the Old Meeting House more than 300 years ago — all in the cause of the religious freedom we enjoy today.

The Congregational Church of Mansfield, Massachusetts in the USA, will also be joining in to mark the weekend.
Other ‘Mansfield’ churches in America and beyond have also been invited.

The events will be streamed online and, Covid-19 restrictions permitting, may also happen live in the Old Meeting House Chapel.

Everyone is welcome to join in the event.
