Although the United Reformed Church is one of the smaller denominations, we believe it has an important contribution to make to the larger church and to the life of our nation.
Seeking unity among Christians is part of our DNA
The United Reformed Church came in to being as a result of the uniting in 1972 of the Presbyterian Church of England and the Congregational Church in England and Wales. (Since then, we have been joined, in 1981, by the Churches of Christ and, in 2000, by the Congregational Union of Scotland).
So seeking unity among Christians is part of our DNA. In a world where divisions among people lead to so much bloodshed, Christians demonstrating the way to live in unity is an essential part of our witness. We are proud to be a uniting church that is still seeking ever closer union with other churches.
