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.
