When and where to find us
Worship at Downing Place
Our main Sunday service is held each Sunday morning 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 being live-streamed at present via our Youtube channel.
To the right, you will find a link to the live-streamed service which took place on Sunday 23 January; which you are welcome to watch at any time; and also a link to the livestream for the service which will take place on Sunday 30 January. This will become live about 5 minutes before worship is due to start.
The service will be led by members of our World Church and Public issues group and will link to our Sunday evening Zoom meeting on the topic of the URC’s response to the recent ‘Legacies of Slavery’ consultation.
Everyone is welcome to worship with us on Sunday morning, 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 us, we have a special First Time in Church page to read which will explain a few things and help you feel at home.
We also hold regular Open Table services and social events, which are particularly inclusive of LGBT+ people but are open to all who are allies. There is a Social Evening on the first Sunday of each month at 7pm; and a service of Holy Communion on the third Sunday of each month at 7.30pm.
You can find out about the other ways we are worshipping together via our Worship page.

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.
We hope to resume our services of Midweek Worship soon.
These usually take place on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at 11.00am.
Our Calendar will be updated as soon as dates are confirmed.
