Sharing the gospel
Reaching out in service
Congleton United Reformed Church is an open and welcoming church in the reformed tradition. We invite you, whoever you are, to come and meet us and join us in sharing faith, worship, mission and service.
We are situated on Antrobus Street, Congleton, close to the centre of this friendly market town. We are a warm and active family of faith. We believe that as Christians, we should express, explore, share and live out our faith everyday.
We join together in praise and worship on Sunday and Tuesday each week. We also reach out in God’s service to our community and to the wider world, to care for each other and local people, living out Jesus’s love for all. In order to be able to do this more effectively we work wherever possible with other local organisations including local Authority, other churches and local charities. Working together we are able to help more of the people across our community in real need.
We would like to invite you to come and enjoy time with us and get to know us. You could join us in worship or in one of the other regular activities that take place each week. We are also always looking for willing volunteers to help at one of the increasing number of activities and events we run designed to help and support local people in need. For more details of the services and other activities that take place each week please see the ‘Services’ or ‘What happens’ pages.
If you have children with you who would like to join our Junior Church during the 10.30 a.m. service, please have a word with one of the Elders or one of the stewards at the door. We also have creche facilities available for younger children. However, if the children prefer to stay with you in the main worship, they will be very welcome.

Walking the Way: Living the life of Jesus today
In John 15 Christ gives us the picture of a vine as a model of what His church should be. Christ Himself is the Vine and the members of the church family are the branches, reaching out into the world to enfold others, to spread the love of Christ throughout the world.
We see our Christian life as a faith journey of exploration experience and expression. Walking the Way with Jesus very much as Jesus’ disciples journeyed with him. It is a learning process where we grow closer to God and are transformed by the Holy Spirit into the people God wants us to be.
The Kingdom of God
We allow our understanding of God to rule and reign in our lives through the grace and love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. This involves sharing the love of Jesus to all within the church and to all we meet in the community and world around us.
