Welcome to Unity Renaissance of Chesapeake!

We are excited to host a first-ever Gnostic Gospels Week this spring in Chesapeake, Virginia. Our Licensed Unity Teachers and ministry teaching staff bring decades of experience, insight, education and most importantly, enthusiasm to teach and share Unity principles with students like you.

“Gnostic Gospels: The Untold Story of Jesus” is our theme for this week. Most classes are approved/credited  S.E.E. classes.  These gospels offer an alternative look at a Christianity that was growing up in the first two centuries after Jesus’ death. The four canonical gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John) were not the only writings of that time… there were more than 50 other writings just within the Nag Hammadi Scrolls alone. Come and explore them with us!

We look forward to a great week of learning, sharing and   growing together.

What to Do, Where to Go

Unity Renaissance is located just 19 miles from the        Virginia Beach oceanfront, home to delightful beaches and the Association for Research & Enlightenment (A.R.E.). Within a few blocks, there is a regional mall, several shopping centers, and many hotels and motels within a mile or two of the church.

What a great place to spend a week of your spring! Soak up the light and bask in the sun. As we study the Gnostic Gospels, we will also study Jesus, his teachings, and ourselves a bit deeper.



Classes being taken for S.E.E. credit are $125 each. Classes being audited for general interest are $80 each.


Love Offering

Unity has operated on a love-offering basis since its inception by the Fillmores. The instructors do not receive payment for teaching classes; they are reimbursed for travel, lodging and meals only. In order to show appreciation, a love offering will be received on Thursday in each class. You are not required to
participate, however, your support helps keep our sessions at a reasonable cost and is most appreciated!
