Harpenden United Reformed Church is a welcoming, family friendly fellowship that offers a non-conformist and reformed church ethos in Harpenden town centre.
Harpenden United Reformed Church holds a Sunday service every week at 10.30am with a congregation of 20 to 30 people attending. The Minster; Rev Jane Weedon, visiting preachers and members of the congregation take turns leading and participating in the service. Our worship style is both traditional and modern, with A\V system allowing more flexibility and creativity. We are fortunate to also have a small choir directed by an excellent organist.
Throughout the year we host special events suitable for the whole family including pet services, a Harvest festival, Nativity service and a carol concert. In addition to this we hold a monthly Holy Communion and evening services which can be reflective, creative or participatory, as planned by a worship group.
Opportunities for spiritual development and growth as well as social events are regularly organised for the church fellowship and in conjunction with our URC Heartland group partner churches in St Albans, WGC, Luton and Dunstable. You can find more information about these on our events calendar, Heartland bulletin and calendar in addition to in our bi-monthly church magazine.
We play a part in the Local Churches Together, we are a Fair Trade church and we support various mission and outreach activities and charities (YWAM, Commitment for Life, the local food bank, Keech Hospice Care, Send a Cow).
We are a local church of the United Reformed Church in Britain, one of the smaller mainstream denominations that has brought together English Presbyterians, English, Welsh and Scottish Congregationalists, and members of the Churches of Christ, through unions in 1972, 1981 and 2000. We are committed to theological and cultural diversity, as well as to ecumenical friendship and cooperation with the other churches in Harpenden.
'In response to God's call, we pray that, through worship and fellowship with us, everyone will learn more about Jesus and so come to know more of God's love.'
