The United Reformed Church is a national church of the Reformed tradition. It was formed in 1972 by the coming together of the Congregational Church, the Presbyterian Church and the Churches of Christ.

Welcome to the website of Stratford upon Avon URC. We hope you will find the information you require here. You will, of course, be equally welcome if you come to the church itself! 

We are a small community with a big heart; everyone is welcome at our services and at our social and fundraising events.

We are a town-centre church and believe in serving our community, aspiring to walk the way of Jesus and showing the love of God to everybody we meet, especially those less fortunate in our society.

The Church is guided by a team of Elders and the Local Leader is Peter Horrocks.

Worship is led by Peter Horrocks, visiting ministers or the Elders and we enjoy this diversity of ministry.

We would love you to come and join our vision for the future in Stratford upon Avon!  

Our Mission

Worship, Witness and Love for others, through Jesus Christ

This month's thought:

"In our future travels through life, let's place our feet in the imprints left by Jesus - he's our expert guide -  he wants to show us the way and his services are free to all"
