About Us

Epping URC is a family church. It is part of the Eastern Synod.

The current building is new though there has been a Church on the same land for over 300 years. We regularly hold coffee mornings and charity bazaars for our chosen charity of the year. We also hold additional events to fundraise for specific causes such as The Box or our Commitment for Life country Zimbabwe.

The children have the option of attending Junior Church which runs almost all year round.

As well as Sunday services there is a regular study group "Vision4Life" which meets most Thursdays.

The United Reformed Church

Who is the United Reformed Church? We are a family of Christians, worshipping in the name of Jesus in about 1500 local churches from Orkney to Cornwall.

  • 'Reformed' means that we delight in the Bible, we do not fear change, and we try to run our churches in ways that take everyone's insight and contribution seriously.
  • 'United' is an important part of our story. We started when English Presbyterians merged with English and Welsh Congregationalists in 1972. Churches of Christ joined in 1981 and Scottish Congregationalists in 2000. We still work as closely as we can with Christians of all traditions and styles.
  • And we are one 'Church'. We aim to grow through supporting one another and taking decisions together.

All our tasks and posts are open to women as fully as to men. We are an intercultural church, where people with varied ethnic roots enrich each other's Christian living. Our people hold a range of opinions about theology and church life. In the words of the denominations Statement of Nature, Faith and Order (1990) together we are firmly committed to 'God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The living God, the only God, ever to be praised.'
