What do we believe?

The United Reformed Church is a tradition that believes in personal conviction and being a community.


We’re like most mainstream Christian Churches in that we believe in the Trinity (Creator, Child and Comforter) and that the Bible is the place where we find guidance and inspiration. We also believe in consensus which means that we make all our important decisions together as a congregation at regular congregational meetings.


We believe God is still talking and that sometimes we need to change how we talk about and practise our faith. We have a proud history - we have been ordaining women for over 100 years and was the first member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland to allow churches to offer same sex marriage. 


We are more interested in what unites us rather than what divides us. As a result, you’ll find many different opinions about faith and belief with people within our congregation.
