Meeting Faith and Community Together
Allerton United Reformed Church has existed as a worshipping community here in Allerton since 1932 with the former city-centre Presbyterian churches moving from Canning Street and Mount Pleasant to the newly-developing suburban green fields. We became the United Reformed Church (URC) in 1972 following the national uniting of the English Presbyterian and the English and Welsh Congregational churches.
As a URC congregation we are part of the Mersey Synod of URC churches and, locally, we are one of 10 Christian churches that make up Churches Together in Mossley Hill. We currently share our Minister, Rev'd. Tim Meadows with Stoneycroft URC and St. Stephen's Wavertree URC, together forming The Heart of Liverpool pastorate of churches.
Our Sunday morning services at 10:00 am have a familiar format each week. The singing of hymns and songs is accompanied by an organist / pianist and we celebrate Communion on the 1st Sunday of most months, as well as on major Christian festivals and we welcome a guest preacher on the 4th (and 5th) Sunday of each month. We are particularly child-friendly with Junior Worship classes for primary school-aged children during Sunday services, occasional "Messy Church" sessions and Holiday Clubs. Everyone is welcome.
We provide (FairTrade) tea, coffee, juice and biscuits (and sometimes cake) after each service when everyone is welcome to stay for a chat and we have a FairTrade stall once a month. We are open and welcoming to those who wish to celebrate baptisms, weddings (in accordance with all current provisions) and funerals. Our premises and halls are particularly well utilized by a wide variety of church and community users - whether groups, organisations or individuals. We are "home" to seven boys' and girls' uniformed organisations; two thriving parent and toddler sessions (Tots and Co.); a renowned drama group (RADS), and offer many social opportunities from our monthly Open Doors coffee morning and Monday Club to our regular quiz nights, concerts, charity coffee events and our annual Spring and Christmas fairs, Plant Sale & Strawberry Tea and Christian Aid Week.
Please feel free to join us on any Sunday morning at 10 am or drop in on one of our many events. We look forward to welcoming you.
