History and Resources

These pages are an account of the history of our Church, also including some other areas of local history which may be of interest.

They were written by Tony Bryer, who would still be interested to hear any comments that you have or any additional information that you may be able to provide. You may contact him by email at hi...@twickenhamurc.org.uk or via Greentram Software.

A printed book "Chapel Next The Green", also written by Tony and published in 1982, contains much more information and photographs covering the time from the founding of our Church (as Twickenham Congregational Church) until 1972. Copies are still available, please contact us for more information.

These pages have not been converted and formatted for our new web site yet, and some of the links within them may not work. If you get lost, please use the "HOME" link at the top left to return to our home page.

at the first page, "The One Page Version".

Here are various other documents and sources of information which you may find useful. More will be added as they become available, but for the moment there is:

Hymns and History - a series of evening sermons given by Tony Bryer in 2004-2007, tracing the 2,000 year history of the Church through hymns of the time. This is a PDF document, download and install Adobe Reader if required.

Brian Louis Pearce (1933-2006): poet, novelist, lecturer and playwright, lay preacher and a longstanding member of our church.

Heating Notes also written by Tony - information on how we have managed and upgraded our church heating over the years, which may possibly of interest to anyone else who is involved in the heating or maintenance of church buildings.
