Kingston upon Thames

In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar....the word of God came to John, son of Zechariah, in the desert.  He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.  Luke 3 vv 1-3

About our church


We are Kingston United Reformed Church, established in Kingston in 1673 as a Presbyterian Church and becoming a Congregational Church on our current site in 1775.  

In 1972 the Congregational Church united with the Presbyterian Church at a national level to become the United Reformed Church.   Our aims are to serve the people of Kingston as a church, and to open our adjacent 19-room Richard Mayo Centre to as many community groups and individuals as possible.

In 2005, we completed major work to the church (roof repairs and re-decoration) and to the Richard Mayo Centre (installing a lift and a state-of-the-art Training Room, modernising the Foyer and re-modelling other rooms).  

Our own fundraising activities and donations raised over £200,000, and Trusts donated the remainder of the money needed.

2012: On Friday 5th October the 40th anniversary of the almalgamation of the English and Welsh Congregational churches with the English Presbyterian churches to form the URC was marked. This union of the separate denominations was the first since the Reformation.
