We are a mainstream Christian church offering a warm welcome to all.
Our services are in the reformed tradition. They offer a creative space to explore
our relationship with God and include bible readings, hymns and songs, prayers, and
interesting reflections that help us to connect our faith with daily life - this
can be through a sermon, drama or meditation. We celebrate Holy Communion once a
month and all who wish to share the bread and wine are welcome to do so.
The United Reformed Church (URC) has brought together English Presbyterians, English,
Welsh and Scottish Congregationalists, and members of the Churches of Christ, through
unions in 1972, 1981 and 2000. Sixty-eight thousand people make up 1500 congregations,
with nearly 700 ministers, paid and unpaid.
We are housed in a building which dates from 1865 although we have had a presence
in the town since 1745.
