Worship at Downing Place
Our main Sunday service is usually held at 11am. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month; and on other special occasions in the Church’s calendar.
Services are open to those who wish to worship in person but are also live-streamed via our Youtube channel. You are welcome to join us in whichever way is most comfortable for you. You can find out about the other ways we are worshipping together via our Worship page.
Everyone is welcome to gather in worship, whether you are a regular church goer or have never attended a service of worship before; or anything in between! If you are new to church or Downing Place URC specifically, we have a First Time in Church page to browse which will hopefully explain a few things and help you feel more at home.
