When and where to find us
On Sunday 17th September, a service was led by our minister, the Reverend Nigel Uden. To watch a recording of the service, please click on the video above.
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.
Our next service will be on Sunday 15th October. Doors open at 7pm for refreshments with worship beginning at 7.30pm.
Open Table Communion
An open and inclusive act of worship with Holy Communion, with LGBT+ folk and their allies particularly in mind, this service takes place on the third Sunday of each month. We open at 7pm and the service begins at 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome. Please contact Alison Binney, the Open Table co-ordinator, for more information.
There is a service every Thursday at Downing Place Church to which all are invited. Each service will last half an hour, with refreshments available afterwards.
