Westminster’s recent redevelopment enables us to cater to the many and evolving needs of individuals, congregations, and committees of the wider United Reformed Church, as well as our ecumenical and inter-faith partners beyond.
If you are looking to organise an event, please visit Conferences and Events or contact our team. We welcome enquiries from individuals and groups from other traditions. Creativity and feeding a spiritual imagination are fundamental to our life and work.
We offer you opportunity for retreat and spiritual guidance along with the creative possibilities of our worship, chapel, prayer labyrinth and art studio. Cambridge provides a host of additional opportunities, and many add time to enjoy these to participation in an event with us. To find out more please get in touch. We are always happy to add you to our contact lists.
As you can see from the upcoming events listed below, we offer a growing and diverse range of programmes for the church. Most of these are open to lay and ordained participants. Some focus explicitly upon specific groups and ministries such as URC worship leaders and preachers or leaders of fresh expressions of church. But the vasty majority invite participation from a broad a group of attendees.
The Gathering : A Westminster and URC Mission Department initiative for Pioneers
The Gathering is an opportunity for those involved in pioneering and Fresh Expressions projects to come together in a facilitated residential three times a year to share experience, support each other and learn together. Whilst Covid is currently preventing us meeting physically we continue to meet regularly online which the group are finding a helpful resource. If you would like to know more about joining this or future Gatherings please contact Linda Rayner or Peter Ball who will be happy to discuss this with you.
