Important Notice to all Members
A candidate for the joint ministry of Thames Ditton URC and New Malden URC will be preaching at both churches on Sunday 9 March, with a view of becoming the new minister. The Minister will take the morning service at New Malden at 10.00am, and an afternoon service at Thames Ditton at 3pm. There will be no morning service at Thames Ditton that day.
On the following Sunday, 16 March, both churches will hold Church Meetings following their morning services, to vote whether to call the Minister.
All Thames Ditton members are asked to make every effort to attend the 3pm service on 9 March, where they will have the opportunity to meet with the candidate over tea or coffee. In addition they are requested to attend the church meeting after the morning service on the following Sunday.
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.
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 50/50 basis by a minister (currently an Interim Moderator), and Tolworth share a minister with Epsom and Ewell URCs.
Revd Jenny Snashall
After Bruce Stuart's retirement at the end of February 2013, Revd Jenny Snashall,
the minister for both Hampton Hill URC and Twickenham URC, was appointed as our
Interim Moderator. Jenny will be guiding us through the process of
seeking a new minister, together with the New Malden congregation.
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.
