History of Buildings
Our origins as a centre of worship in Felixstowe go back to 1869 when an Evangelical Free Church started in Felixstowe in a wooden building in Ranelagh Road. The church was enlarged in 1876 and the next door Manse was purchased.

Wycliffe Hall was built in 1898 on the corner of Cobbold Road and Ranelagh Road. By 1897 the Church was known as Christ Church Congregational Church and called its first Minister. An extension was added in 1922 and extra halls built in 1937.

In 1892 a project was started for a new Presbyterian Church and by 1900 St George’s Presbyterian Church was built on the corner of Orwell Road and Tomline Road, with a manse beside it. The Halls were extended in 1924.

In 1972, a significant year, a National Agreement was drawn up to form the United Reformed Church by uniting the Congregational Church in England and Wales with the Presbyterian Church of England and Wales.

In 1978 Christchurch and St George’s agreed to become one church at the Orwell Road premises as Felixstowe United Reformed Church when extensive modifications were made. The New Hall was built in 1980. The Cobbold Road premises were sold in 1980 and are now the meeting place for the Salvation Army in Felixstowe.

There has been worship on this site for 122 years.

We have a fine 2 manual pipe organ. The current organ was installed in the early 1900s into what was originally a Presbyterian Church. In 1973 the Congregational Church nationally joined with the Presbyterian Church to become the United Reformed Church. The existing Congregational Church in Felixstowe joined with the Presbyterian Church in 1978 to become the Felixstowe United Reformed Church we know today.

The Organ

The organ has an older organ within it dating back to the C19 and is possibly the work of Henry Bevington of Soho London. Some of the metal front pipes have a distinctive Bevington feature and have a ‘milled’ effect. Like a number of English organs it has been much altered over the years and may have been provided originally by Kingsgate Davidson. Since 1994, the organ has been in the care of Bishops’, Ipswich.
