Affiliations and accreditations

A part of the United Reformed Church in England and Wales, being in the East Midlands Synod of the URC. We are one of 5 URCs in Northampton.

We are a long established URC in the eastern suburbs of Northampton, serving both the local community and a gathered congregation. We have an active ministry to children and families, young people and the elderly, with the modernised buildings in use 6 days a week.  The church membership is about 150, with many adherents too.  We have a traditional formal service on Sunday mornings with a more informal Gathering run in parallel on most Sundays, with combined services on special occasions and on 5th Sundays.  Our minister joined us in January 2015 and we are actively seeking to bring more people to faith.  We want to grow both in faith and numbers, so we can more ably serve our community in Jesus' name.  We employ 5 part time staff in an addition to the minister and have many volunteers working to serve the community and church life.
