• Welcome to London Street United Reformed Church

    Basingstoke

     

    Our mission statement - 'To live God's love in Church and Community'​

     

            We are a family of Christians worshipping Jesus Christ in the centre of Basingstoke.

     

    '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.

    '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.

    And we are one 'Church'. We aim to grow through supporting one another and taking decisions together.

     

    The foundation in Basingstoke of our United Reformed Church (then Congregational) dates back at least as far as 1663 when an Independent Community was formed in Basingstoke shortly after the Act of Uniformity in 1662.    Our present building was consecrated in 1801.

     

    We may be 350 years old, but the Lord has work for us today in Basingstoke and the wider community.  I invite you to explore our website, to join us for worship on a Sunday morning, to come and pray with us during the week or simply pop into our community cafe.  Welcome, a word so often used but never worn out.  Come and join us as we discover what God calls us to do.

    Blessings

    Reverend Kay Blackwell

    We welcome all to a coffee morning and table top sale at the church on Saturday 1st December from 10.00 until 12.00pm. Proceeds will go to the church funds.

    As we look towards the New Year, we will start working through the 'Holy Habits' outlined in the book of the same name by Andrew Roberts. Looking firstly at the Bible we shall start on Thursday 14th February at London Street and weekly thereafter ending on 11th April (excluding 21st February for half term).  Whether you are new to the Bible or want to go deeper there will be something for us all to learn. The session will start at 7.00pm with a fellowship supper. Email secretary@basingstokeurc.org.uk for further details.
