About the United Reformed Church

The URC stands in the Reformed tradition of Christian faith, believes in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

  • finds the supreme authority for faith and conduct by the guidance of the Spirit in the Word of God in the Bible;
  • looks to be continually renewed and reformed so as to fulfil its mission of witness and service in the name of Jesus Christ;
  • practises both infant and believer's baptism and celebrates the Lord's Supper;
  • recognises the ministry of God's people: all the members serving in the world and through the church, in particular: ministers of Word and Sacrament, elders, lay preachers, church related community workers (CRCWs), and workers from partner churches.

The URC is part of the World Church through membership of

  • the Council for World Mission (CWM),
  • the World Council of Churches (WCC),
  • the World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC),
  • the World Convention of the Churches of Christ (WCCC) and
  • the Disciples Ecumenical Consultative Council (DECC)
