The Unitarian Earth Spirit Network (UESN) is an association of Unitarian Universalists based in the U.K. that seeks to represent a Nature/Earth/Creation centred religious voice within the church. It was assisted by Jo Rogers as Secretary/Treasurer. The UESN provides a forum for this group and became a recognised, credible part of the British Unitarian movement.

History[edit]

The UESN was founded in 1990 by Rev. Peter Roberts. It began as a part of the British Unitarian sect known as the "Unitarian Pagan Network." This name was eventually changed because some members were unhappy with the negative associations they had for the term 'Pagan'. For a while, it was known as the "Unitarian New Age Network" until the group settled on their current name, "Unitarian Earth Spirit Network."

Affiliations[edit]

In addition to its links to the main British Unitarian community, the organization maintains ties to the U.S.-based Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans, which serves a similar role of representing contemporary Pagan spirituality in the American Unitarian community.[1]

UESN publishes a quarterly newsletter called File, which members receive with an annual subscription.[2]
