Sharing the gospel
Reaching out in service
Congleton United Reformed Church is situated on Antrobus Street, Congleton, close to the centre of this friendly market town. We are a warm, welcoming and busy church where groups meet and activities go on throughout the week.
As a church, we join together in praise and worship for our Sunday services. During the week we reach out in God’s service to our community and to the wider world, to care for each other and others, and to teach people about Jesus’s love for all. In order to be able to do this more effectively we have begun working in partnership with a local charity the LOL Foundation. 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 for worship or for one of the other regular activities that take place each week. You might also like to volunteer to help at one of the increasing number of activities and events 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.
A look at the role of our church in years to come.
Growing God’s Kingdom
In John 15 Christ gives us the picture of a vine tree as a model of what His church should be. Christ Himself is the Vine and the members of the church familiy are the branches, reaching out into the world to enfold others, to spread the love of Christ into the world.
We see our Christian life as a faith journey of exploration experience and expression, in the same way as Jesus’ disciples journeyed with him. It is a learning process where we grow closer to God and are slowly transformed by the Holy Spirit into the people God wants us to be. We are to become rooted in Christ.
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.
