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 40/60 basis by a minister, and Tolworth share a minister with Epsom and Ewell URCs.
It was great news to hear that the Rev. Peter Flint has agreed to be the new minister for the New Malden - Thames Ditton joint pastorate. Both congregations voted unanimously to call him and after thoughtful prayer, and consultation with his wife Judith, he accepted our call. 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. It was the URC's decision to raise the retirement age of ministers to 68 that led Peter (who has just recently turned 60) to decide that 'he had one more new pastorate in him'. How very lucky for us! Peter and Judith have four grown up children. They will 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 will start on Sunday afternoon March 22nd 2015 from 3.30 to 5.30pm and take place monthly from then on. 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.
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
