About Unity of Bon Air


Unity of Bon Air in Richmond, Virginia welcomes you, either in-person or online.  We offer a Sunday Celebration Service  as well as many transformational opportunities throughout the week.

Unity is a positive, practical, and forward-thinking approach to the teachings of Jesus the Christ, recognizing the divine within each of us, and the power of prayer. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions, and respects each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.

We invite you to come experience the love and acceptance ever present in our community!

Our Mission:  To live and express unconditional love and acceptance.

Our Vision:  Unity of Bon Air is an inclusive spiritual community integrating practical Christianity with all areas of knowledge, where we live and grow together in peace and prosperity.

Our Core Values:  Love, Acceptance, Compassion & Forgiveness — We embrace Oneness and are inclusive of all races, colors, genders, ages, creeds, origins, ethnicities, differing abilities, and sexual orientation.

Unity Has Five Basic Principles

  1.  God is all there is and present everywhere. This is the force of love and wisdom that underlies all of existence.
  2.  Human beings are divine at their core and therefore inherently good.
  3.  Thoughts have creative power to determine events and attract experiences.
  4.  Prayer and meditation keep us aligned with the one great power in the universe.
  5.  It is not enough to understand spiritual teachings. We must live the Truth we know.



Sunday Celebration Service:  10:30 am, In-person and livestream via YouTube
