History

In 1972 most of the Congregational Churches and all of the Presbyterian churches in England UNITED to form the URC. In 1981 most of the churches of Christ joined. The URC aims to be the catalyst for greater union.

We trace our roots to the REFORMATION in Europe in the 16th century when Christians tried to get ‘back to basics’ in the faith. The URC is part of the world wide REFORMED Church.

We are one of the mainstream Christian CHURCHES sharing the same faith as the other Christians in following Jesus Christ, but our worship and organisation maybe different. This church tends to have a more informal evangelical worship. Our organisation is democratic recognising the reality of the priesthood of all believers.
