We are a growing church in the heart of the town. We think of ourselves as open to the whole Community, for worship, christian growth and a welcoming place for many social groups to gather. Taking inspiration from Jesus in Matthew 5 v 16 , we believe our church is called to "Let your light shine" 

We were formerly called the Free Church but after we re-united with Woodhall Lane URC in 2014  we are now known as Welwyn Garden City URC.  We have a wide range of worship and community activities based in and around our building.

Our Church is part of the United Reformed Church,which traces its roots back to the Presbyterian Church, the Congregational church and the Churches of Christ and the Bible has a central place in all our worship.

Many of our church activities are run by volunteers and there are lots of opportunities for involvement

Prayers in a Pandemic 

Dear God,

As we enter this next phase of ‘Freedom’ with fewer restrictions, may we realise that we were always ‘free’; free to love, free to care, free to give joy. With the lessons learned from this past year, may we be unleashed to love as you do by being of service to our fellow brothers and sisters with renewed energy and commitment. For in this way, we not only exercise our freedom, but also our faith.

Amen
