THE URC are a family of Christians, worshipping in the name of Jesus in about 1500 local churches from Orkney to Cornwall.

All our tasks and posts are open to women as fully as to men. We are an intercultural church, where people with varied ethnic roots enrich each other’s Christian living. Our people hold a range of opinions about theology and church life. In the words of the denominations Statement of Nature, Faith and Order (1990) together we are firmly committed to ‘God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The living God, the only God, ever to be praised.

You can read more about the URC’s ethos in their Statement concerning the Nature, Faith and Order (PDF).

legacies of slavery

The United Reformed Church is determined to explore the Legacies of Slavery. The transatlantic slave trade was one of the largest forced migrations of human beings across the globe. Race-based chattel slavery, as practised in the Atlantic world, remains one of the ugliest forms of exploitation of other human beings ever invented.


Mission is the reason why the church exists. It is God’s work, but it is work in which God is calling us to participate. Like the disciples, God is calling us to be witnesses and to live out the good news of God’s love for the sake of the world.
