Past Event : Greenbelt 2019

Amanda Veitch is a Youth Ambassador for the URC and here at West Derbyshire we were delighted to support her request for postcard size items with messages on them.  Amanda took these to Greenbelt and together with the many other URC’s throughout the country a lovely display was exhibited in the URC tent where they also encouraged people to make a postcard message.  Please look at the URC Greenbelt website for more information.  The picture is of one section of the display.

Past Event : Get Together at Tideswell

The Churches in the North DerbyshireArea of the URC will meet together on Saturday 8th June and Fountain Square Church in Tideswell. We all plan to arrive at about 11.30am, have a drink and a tour of the building and see the redevelopment. We will eat our packed lunches and those who would like to walk can head out. For those who prefer not to there is the parish church to look at, shops and a stroll around the village. We will then reconvene at fountain Square for a chat and a cup of tea. We look forward to this event.
