Churches are not just for Sundays, and the Unitarian Church is delighted to welcome The Next Step to Princes Street.

Welcome to The Next Step

The Next Step was set up to support people who may have experienced depression, mental health or emotional difficulties in their lives. We provide a year round programme of creative activities & workshops to support and enhance mental health and well-being.  

The core focus is a weekly Open Art Studio – which is on an open access, drop in basis – facilitated and supported by professional visual artists. We also have a regular weekly Creative Writing group session. Other activities are introduced from time to time.
