Services

Minister

Reverend Kathryn Taylor

Roydon United Reformed Church is a welcoming village church with 16 members led by 5 serving elders. We share our minister, Rev Kathryn Taylor with 3 sister churches in HAEBEA: Leaside LEP, Trinity URC, and David Livingstone URC.

Sunday Worship — 9.45 am

A crèche is available if required.

The worship style varies as a wide variety of lay and ordained personnel from different Christian traditions lead services but it tends towards the 'traditional' usually using the URC hymnbook 'Rejoice and Sing'.

Holy Communion takes place approximately once a month and Parade services are also held monthly when the Cubs and Brownies are present.

Worshippers come from many Christian backgrounds. This is the only free church in the village and all who love the Lord Jesus Christ or who are seeking to know more about the Christian faith are warmly encouraged to join us.

Events and Activities

  • A regular monthly community coffee morning takes place at the Palmer Room in the church from 10.00 am on the first Saturday morning of each month.
  • Other social events take place throughout the year and the members take part in charitable and study activities.
  • The Church belongs to the Herts and Essex Border Ecumenical Area (HAEBEA) and also seeks to work ecumenically with the Parish Church, St Peter's, Roydon.

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.'
