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
