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.

Our long-time organist, Terry Doughty, has decided it is now time to call it a day on his playing days. Terry started playing when he was 13, now, 73 years on, he feels it is time for a well deserved  rest. Thank you, Terry, for all of the wonderful musical memories.

Very sorry to have missed Terry's last service. Always enjoyed working and worshipping with him, and much appreciated his improvisations.

Thank you Terry for your long and faithful service. We shall miss you. Enjoy your well earned retirement. Love to you both xx

Sorry I couldn't be there but thank you Terry. Wishing you God's blessing on a happy retirement.
