SPEER ROAD CHURCH
Sunday 18 February, Hampton Court Half-Marathon
Station road is closed from 0800 to 0930. After 09.30 car drivers should experience no problems if they come in to Station Road via St Leonards Road and High Street Thames Ditton. Giggs Hill Road From the Angel PH end to Watts Road will also be open from 09.30 as will Watts Road. There will be no problem in turning into Speer Road from Station Road after 09.30 am.
Embercourt Road from Hampton Court Way to Station Road will be closed from 09.30 to 11.00. There is also no access to Summer Road from Hampton Court Way although traffic may exit from Summer Road.
Weston Green Road is open from 09.30 but there will be a lot of runners crossing it at the junction with Hampton Court Way which may cause delays.
My advice is that your church members travelling by car and aiming to arrive for around 10.30 Should follow the route from St Leonards Road to join Summer Road and then turn left into Speer Road to your church. All roads should be back to normal by the time your service is finished.
A Welcome to All
Welcome to Thames Ditton United Reformed Church - a church founded in 1804 in this lovely Thames-side village. Our Sunday services, which include a Junior Church, are at 10.45am, with a Communion Service following once a month. Everyone is welcome. We also welcome visitors to our various social events.
From Auguest 2016 we will have a TeaTime Service once a month, in place of that morning's service.
We are part of a cluster of four United Reformed Churches, Kingston, New Malden, Tolworth and Thames Ditton. Kingston is served by a full-time minister, our church at Thames Ditton and New Malden URC are served on a 40/60 basis by a minister, and Tolworth share a minister with Epsom and Ewell URCs.
Our Minister is the Rev. Peter Flint has agreed to be the minister for the New Malden - Thames Ditton joint pastorate. Peter had been the minister at Dorking United Reformed Church. He had been there since 2005 and he is a very well liked member of the Chrisitan community in Dorking. Peter and Judith have four grown up children. They live in the Manse in New Malden though, as we know from Bruce's time, that is only a short trip up the A3.
We are pleased that Chris Stuart has agreed to head up Messy Church which is held on Sunday afternoons from 3.30 to 5.30pm. Activities, including crafts for the whole family, worship and a simple meal. Come and join in the fun. Contact details 0203 754 0940. Messy Church is something that is happening all over the country and has attracted many new people to an experience of church not as we know it.
Membership makes a difference. The United Reformed Church is a Membership organisation if
you are not a member and would like to find out more about it please speak to an Elder or the Minister.
In 1972 the Congregational Church of England & Wales, and the Presbyterian Church of England joined together
to form the United Reformed Church. The Church has always worked for increased union between churches, and this
is certainly so in Thames Ditton, where we work closely with the Church of England at St Nicholas, and also with
other churches in the neighbourhood.
In November 2004 we celebrated our 200th anniversary. For that celebration John King wrote
a history of the Church -click on the 'History' link below
The church is in Speer Road, just a minute or two from Thames Ditton Station. Postcode KT7 0PL
