BUYAN - British and Irish Unitarian Young Adult Network

BUYAN is an inclusive group for young Unitarian adults between the ages of 18 and 35 inclusive.

We meet regularly for a variety of different workshops and sessions which include everything from tie dying to exploring what makes worship special for us.

We are mindful of the following values in all that we do:
