Sunday Services

All are welcome to join us for any of our services.

Our Sunday worship is at the heart of our church life.  We come together to meet with God, to celebrate God’s goodness and love.  We pray for God’s guidance in our lives.  Services are simple in style with a minimum of ritual. Holy Communion forms part of the service on the first Sunday morning, and the third Sunday evening of each month.

Our services are generally made up of hymns, prayers, readings from the Bible and a sermon. Members of the congregation help the minister who leads the worship and certain special services may focus on a theme, such as Remembrance, One World Week and Christian Aid

10.00am : Morning Worship

6.00pm : Evening Worship (not second or fourth Sundays of the month)


First Sunday of month (morning) - Holy Communion

Third Sunday of month (morning) - Family Service (often a Parade Service where the uniformed organisations join in)

Third Sunday of month (evening) - Holy Communion

Fifth Sunday of month (evening) - Celtic Evening Prayer


These are subject to change around festivals.  Please check the events pages for exact details.

As the church is currently without a minister, each service is taken by a different visiting preacher that is giving the congregation an opportunity to experience a wide range of styles of ministry.  Services are designed for all with a strong emphasis on the sermon and hymn singing to a magnificent organ.

There is a crèche in church for children under 3 at each morning service.

Groups are arranged in the back premises for active toddlers and children aged 3+ at each morning service as well.  The church initially meets together before they leave to return towards the end.

Evening services tend to have a quieter and more reflective atmosphere than the Morning Service and people find it a helpful and refreshing start to the new week.


There are some 2,000 local churches of the United Reformed Church.  We stand in the main stream of Christian belief together with the Church of England, Catholic and other Free Churches.  We are made up of a growing number of people from all religious backgrounds or none at all who find themselves at home together.  We hope you will find an atmosphere of freedom and tolerance in the Caterham United Reformed Church.  It is a church where different theologies can be reconciled and held together.
