Hello & Welcome to Wellingborough URC

Wellingborough URC has played a significant part in the life of Wellingborough and is affectionately known within the local community has either  ‘The Pork Pie Church’, due to it’s shape or ‘The Congo’ for it’s Congregational background. But for us, we simply know it as High St!

However, it isn’t the name or shape of the building, it’s the people who make the church what it was, what it is today and what it will become.

Therefore, we hope you will spend a few minutes browsing our website and find it a gateway to discover enough about us to want to know more.

Elders, Members and Congregation.

East Area Service - Great Doddington Chapel 30th June

Readings - 1 Kings 2: v1-10, Luke 9: v51-62 

A change of scene today with a visit to the URC, Gt Doddington for our East Area service. 

An opportunity for each church to share news and plans. This year there was common theme across all churches of improving relationships with the communities they are situated.

With our Moderator Revd Peter Meek having to pull out a the last minute the service was led by Revd Derek Hopkins, who posed us with the question - To whom do we belong?

Whether it be nationalism, political, sport, music, or even the social media platform of choice, our world is becoming more tribalised than at any point since WW2.

But of course tribalism isnt something new. Jesus had to deal with the Jews hatred for the Samaritans - telling them that if they wanted to be true followers, they would have to be fully signed up to his philosophy. 

This is no different today, being a Christian has implications on how we behave, there is no such thing as a nominal Christian, we have to be fully committed and prepared to stand against anything which doesnt fit with way Jesus would want us to live.


Stepwise, the United Reformed Church’s intergenerational discipleship programme became available on a phased basis from September 2018.

Stepwise aims to deepen discipleship and encourage Christian confidence in today’s world. Taking seriously the many and varied settings in which believers find themselves at work, play and involved in community life.

Stepwise is based around five broad subject streams, Faith-filled life, Faith-fuelled leadership, Faith-filled confidence, Faith-filled community and Faith-filled worship.

The programme provides participants with a combination of learning opportunities through project-based activities, online materials and support from a mentor.
