The United Reformed Church
Although one of the smaller mainstream denominations, the United Reformed Church plays a dynamic and challenging part in the British Christian community. It has brought together English Presbyterians, English, Welsh and Scottish Congregationalists, and members of the Churches of Christ, through unions in 1972, 1981 and 2000. Today in the United Reformed Church, one hundred thousand people make up 1600 congregations.
The United Reformed Church combines its commitment to the Reformed tradition with a passionate belief that all God’s people should be one. It seeks to work with Christians of all traditions, and has declared itself a multicultural church, rejoicing in the gifts of members from across the world and seeks to hold together a wide variety of theological understandings; valuing different insights helps the church understand the wonder of God.
Worship with the United Reformed Church, Diss
The local congregation, worshipping with the Methodists on Sunday at 10:45am, meet at the URC on the fourth Sunday of the month (Junior Church is also provided during this service) and at the Methodist Church in Victoria Road, Diss, on other Sundays. A warm welcome is given to visitors from all Christian traditions and to those from none, and an open invitation is offered to any who might care to join them.

The United Reformed Church Serves the Local Community
The URC is keen to give the local community the opportunity to benefit from the significant investment that has been made in the rooms described in these pages. Local organisations who are regular users of the rooms have been invited to join experienced officers of the church to form the Building Committee.
