At Congleton URC we are committed to: providing a centre of excellence in Congleton, where the Church, working in partnership with other people/agencies addresses the needs of the people of our community in a safe, multifunctional, user friendly environment, now and into the future.
With the support of volunteers from the congregation and friends of the church we have focused on developing partnership working to create a sustainable programme of activities, and through low cost rental of the premises encouraged community group usage that supports the physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing of our local community.
