The United Reformed Church
Historically, United Reformed Churches are a union of English Presbyterian and the Congregational Churches in England, Scotland and Wales.
In practice, the church membership, through its Elders, has the responsibility for the vision and administration of the church under God’s guidance.
The Minister and Elders provide pastoral care for church members, friends and associates.
