We are a group of four churches of the United Reformed Church in Darlington, Northallerton and Swaledale that work together with a common aim. Explore this website by the tabs above to find out more about us.
(see below for our continuing worship provision options during the pandemic. Individual churches may have further options - please see their pages.)
Due to current advice all Services are currently cancelled.
here are two alternatives which the Elders urge all who have internet access to use during this time. Even in this remote way, we can build a sense of continued fellowship.
1. A MINI-SERVICE for the Pastorate prepared by Darlington's leaders (local preachers and "visiting" preachers. This is a text document with prayers, hymns, readings and reflection.
[FIND A LINK ON ANY CHURCH'S 'SUNDAY' PAGE]
2. Nationally, the URC is providing a AUDIO SERVICE with text to follow through the DAILY DEVOTIONS link. The link to this will be emailed to those who want it on Sundays at 9.45am. It can, also, be used later if another time is more convenient.
[If you do not already receive the emailed Daily Devotions, CLICK HERE to go to the website and 'sign up' - it is a wonderful free resource - and you will also recieve the link to the Service]
We are also looking into developing Bible Study groups through Skype or similar.
Pastoral care and contact will be maintained through Elders and pastoral visitors by phone etc.
