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.

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.
