Coronavirus Restrictions
as of June 2021

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and following advice on public gatherings from the government and the national URC, some communal activities at TURC remain suspended. For further information on your group's meetings or activities please contact your group leader.

Sunday morning worship will take place at 10.30am, and evening worship at 6pm. Numbers permitted to attend at the church are limited due to social distancing requirements, so if you wish to attend please contact us first.

The church will be open for private prayer on Wednesdays from 10am-noon. Our Minister or other volunteers will be here at those times; anyone is welcome to come along if you need any sort of prayer, support, or just someone to talk to. Hampton Hill church is also open for private prayer on Saturday mornings.

Please observe the social distancing requirements and instruction notices if visiting the church.

Our Minister and other church officers can still be contacted by email as usual, please see our Contact Us page. You may contact our Minister if you need any kind of support.

Our thoughts and prayers will be with all church worshippers and users during these difficult times, and we ask you to bear in mind the vulnerable and those in need among us and in our community. We hope that you and all those around you will stay safe and well, and we look forward to welcoming you back when we are able to do so.

Join us as we worship God together
and find his purpose for our lives

Visitors are always welcome.

We are a thoughtful church of about 40 members. We study the Bible, share experiences, and pray together to learn more about Jesus Christ and where he leads us.

We meet for worship at 10.30am and 6pm each Sunday. Our services generally last about 1-1¼ hours. Morning worship includes Junior Church, and a crèche and play corner with activities for young children is provided. Refreshments are served afterwards, a good chance to meet and chat with the preacher or other members of the congregation.

Currently we do not have a dedicated Minister; our Interim Moderator is Eileen Lawlor. She regularly conducts worship in our church and others, and also we have many visiting ministers and lay preachers both from within the URC and from other demoninations.

We normally celebrate Holy Communion during our services on the first Sunday evening and third Sunday morning of each month.

New Revised Standard Version cover Rejoice and Sing cover

Our standard Bible text is the New Revised Standard Version, although we also read and study passages from other versions and texts, both historical and modern.

Our hymn book is the United Reformed Church's Rejoice and Sing, although again we sing hymns from many other sources during our worship. We have our own hymn book Hymns for Twickenham Green which contains many of our favourites, and we also from time to time introduce new hymns and music.

We are situated by Twickenham Green at the southern end of First Cross Road, opposite the cricket pavilion. Look for our building as in the picture above, or see this page for a map and travel information.

You and/or your children are also of course welcome to join us during the week at our children's and young persons' groups, or as part of one of the many youth organizations meeting at the church. Please see their respective pages for further information and times.

There has been a church on our site since 1835. Until 1972, when most Congregational and Presbyterian churches in England and Wales united to form the United Reformed Church, we were known as Twickenham Congregational Church. There is much more information on the history of our church and buildings on this web site.

We have close associations not only with Hampton Hill URC, but also with the other churches around Twickenham Green: Holy Trinity Church, Twickenham Green Baptist Church, and the Salvation Army. We hold joint services and events with these and others, including our annual Summer Songs of Praise service on Twickenham Green.

We are part of the Southern Synod of the national URC. For a formal statement of faith, and other policy documents, please refer to the URC Manual.
