What is the URC

About Us

The Synod supports the mission and ministry of our local churches.

The purpose of the Synod is for our local churches to work together to support each other’s mission and ministry. The main meetings of the Synod take place 2-3 times each year when Ministers and other local church representatives meet for worship and to plan our work together.

In addition to this there are various committees that meet regularly to co-ordinate our work. The Synod has a dedicated team of officers and staff. Some of our staff team are based in our Synod Office in Central London while others spend most of their time visiting and working with local churches.

By working together, it is possible for local churches to do more than they could by working on their own.
