Our Minister is Rev David Rees who we share with Castle Hill URC & St John’s URC in Ipswich, Leiston United Church and Saxmundham URC. David does not not preach in our church every week but in normal times we have an interesting programme for our Sunday morning worship. We also have an Interim Minister, Rev Ernie Boss, and a Minister in Training, Adam Woodhouse.
Morning worship is held every Sunday at 10.30 am. On the first Sunday of each month we celebrate Holy Communion.
Called to be God’s people, transformed by the Gospel, working to make a difference in today’s world. This is the United Reformed Church, of which Felixstowe URC is a part.
In the URC ministers and lay people, through their commitment to the church, together seek the mind of Christ.
At a local level we seek the guidance of Minister and Elders who meet regularly. Decisions affecting the whole church are taken at regular Church Meetings.
Elders and other members undertake specific roles to ensure the smooth running of worship and activities and compliance with all regulatory and legal requirements.
Our Secretary and Treasurer are both serving Elders.
Church meetings are held quarterly. At the Annual General Meeting in March newly elected Elders start their term of office.
We are a United Reformed Church, committed to the Reformed tradition, with a passionate belief that all God’s people should be one.
The URC is a multicultural church rejoicing in the gifts this brings, seeking to hold together a wide variety of theological understandings and valuing different insights.
Felixstowe URC came into being in 1972 when the United Reformed Church was formed as a union between the Congregational and Presbyterian churches. Our two local churches were St George’s Presbyterian Church and Felixstowe Congregational Church. Following other unions in 1981 and 2000 we have welcomed Welsh and Scottish Congregationalists and members of the Churches of Christ.
