About Our Church

We are a thoughtful church of about 50 members. We study the Bible, share experiences, and pray together to learn more about Jesus Christ and where he leads us.

Our minister is Reverend Jenny Snashall, whom we share with Hampton Hill URC. She regularly conducts worship in our church and others, and also we have many visiting ministers both from within the URC and from other demoninations.

We also have a strong tradition of lay participation in leadership. Many of our members lead worship in other local churches from time to time, and quite a few more lead worship within our own church.

New International Version cover Rejoice and Sing cover

Our standard Bible text is the New International 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 have been worshipping on our present 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 (with which we share our minister), 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 formal statements of faith, refer to the national URC's Basis of Union and GEAR, the Group for Evangelism and Renewal.
