Hello, and welcome to Wellingborough URC.
We hope you will find it a gateway to discover enough about us to want to know more.
Set in the heart of the East Midlands, Wellingborough is a traditional market town, which has evolved into a thriving multi-cultural community.
Our centrally-located church draws its congregation from the whole of Wellingborough, surrounding villages and towns further afield. The town itself has a population of about 76,000 but this is projected to expand by 30% over the next 10-15 years.
We are privileged to be able to worship in two different buildings, offering variety and flexibility. High Street is a Grade II* listed building, unusual in shape and housing 1 of just 3 Compton Organs in the country, whilst Victoria is fairly modern in comparison. Many of our church and community related activities take place in Salem Hall, which is just a short walk from High Street.
Although a church with an interesting history, people make the church what it is today and what it can become.
If you would like to be part of that future, advancing the kingdom of Jesus Christ in the 21st century, then we would be delighted to welcome you among us.
Rev'd Martha McInnes, Elders and Congregation

Drew Chapel Update
The Drew Chapel Project is in progress. For those who do not know, there is a small group working on behalf of the church to coordinate reordering the space at the back of the church, the Drew Chapel, to include a kitchen, create an enclosed small room for worship and meetings, to develop a ramp for disabled access at the front of the church and a central entrance.
This work has been inching forward for some time. We recently had a meeting with the architect and the Listed Buildings Advisory Committee. This went really well. The group is now beginning applications to go to Synod for approval of the project.
