Welcome to Downing Place URC

Committed to building up people in faith and in following Christ, we are an open and inclusive church in the centre of Cambridge.  We strive to be a community that reflects God’s radical love, welcoming to all.

Our worship is marked by a sense of reverence and of joy, drawing on the riches of the Reformed tradition of liturgy and preaching, with a special appreciation of music.  We foster an intelligent and non-judgmental environment for exploring faith, and seek to live out this faith in a commitment to social justice.

Downing Place URC is delighted to welcome any students and staff in the city, however long their stay, and is the Church of Scotland Chaplaincy for the University of Cambridge. There is disabled access through the Halls entrance.
