We are part of the South West Hants Group of Churches, comprising three other Southampton URCs:  Avenue St. Andrew’s, Isaac Watts Memorial and Freemantle, along with an Anglican-Methodist-URC Ecumenical Partnership at St. Francis Church, Valley Park. For Sunday morning worship, Ministers move from one church to another from time to time.

The Group was set up in 2006 and our aim is to do as many things together as is practicable. There is one Minister at present, Rev Dr Sarah Hall, with an approved vacancy for a second.  Responsibility for the four churches has previously been shared between the two ministers.

We have shared Elders’ Training sessions, Bible Studies and Social events.  Although each church operates independently, we each pay in to a Group account to cover Ministerial salaries, expenses etc. Our aim is to work more closely together in every way.
