Our Church



Sunday worship is at 10.30a.m.
Services tend to be traditional, with hymns, bible readings, prayers led by the worship leader, normally a minister or lay preacher and a sermon or comment.
We welcome everyone to celebrate Holy Communion, usually on the first Sunday of the month.
You are invited to join us for coffee after the service.
A warm welcome awaits you – come and join us!

Working In the Community

A community facility for local groups.
We are very well located with excellent transport links and we are committed to making it available for recreational and educational purposes for local community groups and national organisations.

Supporting people in need in the area through church and community projects
We believe that we have a very special mission in Croydon which has increased in recent years.

Every Thursday in school term times in partnership with other churches, we run a Lunch Club where we serve a free meal to anyone in the area who wants one.

We host a Christmas Party for children from a local Women’s Refuge We support a number of community organisations by providing the facilities for their meetings at no, or minimal, cost. For example The Link Drop-in is held once week for people to meet over a cup of coffee and to chat and play games.

Another group provides a similar session for people working with former drug users. The pre-school staff run parenting classes from time to time.

Fundraising for Charities

Each year we support a number of charities that work in both our local community and around the world. We join in Christian Aid Week and every month we also have a special collection at communion services to support specific charities.

Recent donations have been made to a Leprosy Charity in India, Christian Aid Gaza Appeal, St Christopher’s Hospice, a local Women’s Refuge, Joyner, the child we sponsor in Ecuador and our own Benevolent Fund, which we use to help individuals in need who are known to us within the church and wider community.

We are a Fair Trade church and supported the Make Poverty History campaign.

Partnerships With Other Churches

One of the key elements of United Reformed Churches is a commitment to working with other churches. We support the Croydon Churches Housing Association and also Churches Together in Addiscombe. We act as a meeting place for URC churches from all over the South East of England.
