The congregation is made up of all sorts of people from the local community. We meet to worship God, to share fellowship, and to try to live out God’s mission in the world. We try to get involved in what’s happening in our own area, and we also support international charities such as Christian Aid.
We are a fairly new URC (2018), having formerly been an LEP (local ecumenical partnership) with a local Anglican church (see History ).
Our minister since November 2019, is Rev Naomi Young-Rodas, who is also the minister of Christ Church, Rayleigh URC , so we do not see her every week. Our other services are taken by local lay-preachers. Naomi usually leads worship on the 2nd (Communion) and 4th Sundays of the month.
The Minister is supported by a team of Elders elected by the congregation.
We are a small congregation of about 20 members. Most of our members are retired but we have some younger members. We have occasional All Age Services with children from the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides who have week-day sessions at the church (view here) We also have Bible Study/time of Fellowship once a month, a film morning, and a community coffee morning every week Click here to see our Regular Activities
