Where do we come from?

Our origins go back to the time of the Civil War,  Oliver Cromwell and the Restoration. During   that    period,   'Independent'   and    English   Presbyterian   Churches   were established.   It was a turbulent time and there were many splits within congregations sometimes making history somewhat blurred.  The 'Independents' eventually became known as Congregationalists.

What is the United Reformed Church?

The United Reformed Church plays a dynamic and challenging part in the British Christian community, despite being one of the smaller mainstream denominations. It 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.
