Newington Green Meeting House: Revolutionary Ideas is a project from New Unity (the non-religious church) thanks to the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund. This project will restore London's oldest place of non-conformist worship, Newington Green Meeting House, and share its stories of radical thought and action.
