About Us

The United Reformed Church is one of the smaller "mainstream" denominations in the UK, formed in 1972 when the Congregational and Presbyterian churches came together. Since then two other small denominations have joined: the Churches of Christ (1981) and the Congregational Union of Scotland. (2000)

There has been a Christian church on this site since 1669, with the present church dating from 1893. The Ewen Hall, widely used by church and community groups, was opened in 1907. In 1935, a sister church was built in Chesterfield Road, with whom we share a minister.
The church is part of Churches Together for Chipping Barnet

The church is much more about the people than the building. We are a group of ordinary people from all walks of life who believe that God, who created the world, gave up his son, Jesus Christ, to die upon a cross in order to restore the relationship between himself and humankind. We believe that Jesus changes lives, bringing forgiveness and a new beginning to all who call on him. The Holy Spirit is our helper and guide. We are all at different stages in our journey with God, and believe that the church community should rejoice in a diversity of gifts and approaches. In a service of worship we both give to God our worship and praise and receive from him forgiveness and peace, learning more of him through his word in the Bible, and how to live our lives as Christians. We seek to reflect the love of God into the community through worship and service. Once a month we share in Communion (the Lord's Supper).

A team of Elders are elected from among the church members to work with the minster offering leadership and pastoral care.

Once a month we hold a Church Meeting where matters relating to church life are discussed and where decisions are made.
