About the URC
The Vale URC, Broadstairs, is part of the United Reformed Church , a family of Christians worshipping in the name of Jesus in about 1500 local churches from Orkney to Cornwall.
- 'Reformed' means that we delight in the Bible, we do not fear change, and we try to run our churches in ways that take everyone's insight and contribution seriously.
- 'United' is an important part of our story. We were formed when English Presbyterians merged with English and Welsh Congregationalists in 1972. Churches of Christ joined in 1981 and Scottish Congregationalists in 2000. We still work as closely as we can with Christians of all traditions and styles. The Vale is glad to be part of Churches Together in Broadstairs and St Peter's.
- And we are one 'Church'. We aim to grow through supporting one another and taking decisions together.
