The Gathering- For all new expressions of church

The Gathering will be a space for sharing best practice and bouncing ideas; and will recognise that each team is starting in a different place, with different interests and different groups, yet acknowledging that we all have one primary goal – to bring new disciples to Jesus.

Cost: £25 per person per 24hr toward accommodation and food.
In brief: The Gathering will be a network of prayerful mutual encouragement which will convene for three     24-hour meetings in 2020 (plus in-between via social media) and meetings thereafter to be arranged.
To book: Numbers are limited, so we ask that in the first instance you indicate interest by emailing linda.rayner@urc.org.uk with your name, the name and location of your new expression of church plus a few details of the work that you are doing. Please indicate interest by Friday 20th September 2019. For more information: The Gathering 2020


The vision of our redevelopment means maximising the flexibility of our spaces and staff to cater to the many and evolving needs of individuals, congregations, committees and wider URC gatherings. Already Westminster is deeply involved in ecumenical and inter-faith partnerships, and welcomes enquiries from individuals and groups from other traditions.

We offer a growing and diverse range of programmes for the Church. Most of these are open to lay and ordained participants, and some focus upon specific groups and ministries such as URC worship leaders and preachers. 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 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.
