Chalice groups provide a way for members, friends and newcomers to join together in a small group
(6-10 people) and discuss topics that the group members have selected. Each person shares her/his thoughts on topics they have selected and the group members simply listen providing the participants the freedom to explore their inner thoughts.

Unitarian Universalist minister John Morgan said that people come into our communities looking for a place to belong (intimacy) and a place to seek meaning (ultimacy) about living and dying and the spaces between.
Here at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Sarasota we offer members and newcomers to this community an opportunity to participate in Chalice Groups as a way to deepen both belonging and meaning.
Chalice Groups provide a unique opportunity to:
* Explore and experiment with deep personal reflection and listening
* Build a sense of community among the participants
* Create a climate of mutual respect and understanding
* Strengthen the shared experience of being a Unitarian Universalist.
Each Chalice Group is composed of 8-10 members who meet twice a month to share their ideas and feelings regarding significant topics that the members have jointly selected.
A few examples of topics previously chosen by groups are:
* Life Purpose
* What I Love
* Living Simply
* It Matters What I Believe
The meetings are facilitated by trained facilitators, and members are asked to commit to eight meetings. At the conclusion of the eight gatherings, some members may decide to continue for another round of eight meetings and new members may be brought into the group.
