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 the shape of the building, it is the people that make the church what it was, what is today and what it is to 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.

Rev’d Martha McInnes, Elders, Members and Congregation.

Martin & Constance on Their Holidays

Martin & Constance at Wellingborough URCMartin Luther and Constance Coltman

Wellingborough United Reformed Church is celebrating a couple of key people this year.  One is Martin Luther, who was one of the reformers of the Roman Catholic church 500 years ago.  In addition, 100 years ago Constance Coltman was the first woman ordained in the Congregational Church of England and Wales.  This tradition is one strand of the URC.

Over the coming months two small figures representing Constance and Martin are spending some time with us at High Street.  Martin, will be with members and friends of the church.  Constance will be with Martha on her sabbatical, wherever that may take her.

ALSO on the agenda Extract from BCW Resources Committee 13 June 2018 Town centre parking: since approval of the planning application by Keepmoat at the High Street, a review of options has been commissioned on the land which will be retained should members decide to approve the sale of land to Keepmoat. This includes the option for additional parking spaces. To provide additional car parking the following proposals are suggested for further investigation; both would need engineer’s reports, consultation with the Environment Agency, and have not yet been costed. Whilst still at the feasibility planning stages, it is estimated that these initiatives could create in the region of 150 additional spaces to enhance the offering at the theatre and to help supplement the reduced parking at the High St: (a) spaces on either side of Castle Way, some of which could be accessed via the multi storey car park entrance and some of which would be alongside the brook, dependent on Environment Agency advice; (b) an increase to the public car park adjacent to the theatre, potentially by the construction of an additional storey – subject to further investigation from the feasibility and planning perspectives.
