Our history, beliefs, worship and organisation

Our history

We are a mainstream church, almost 55 years old, Congregational in origin, and, when Congregationalists and Presbyterians became one church in 1972, part of the United Reformed Church. We are a member of Churches Together in Stevenage.

Our beliefs

Our worship

We are open to different styles of worship including regular family services. These are often led by visiting lay preachers, or members of our own church family, who are involved at other times in scripture reading and leading prayers.

Our organisation

Major decisions are taken by the church members, meeting regularly together.

The day to day running of the church’s affairs is undertaken by a group of elected ‘lay leaders’ known as Elders, meeting monthly.

The church is supported by the national structures of the United Reformed Church through the Thames North Synod, and locally within the St. Albans Area as part of the North Herts. Group of Churches.
