Barnard Castle News.
It is with sadness that due to an ageing congregation and a failure to secure funding to repair a deteriorating building a decision was taken to close the URC in Barnard Castle on 2nd October 2016. We take this opportunity to thank all of the church members, both past and present, for their devotion and service to the church in Barnard Castle over many years. We also thank all of the friends of the church who have supported us over the years.
Although the church has closed we are maintaining our links with the URC by travelling to Northgate URC, Darlington on the first Sunday of the month to join in their monthly Communion service. On other Sundays individual members are joining in worship at other churches in the town - Methodist, Christian Fellowship and Anglican, where they have received a warm welcome.
For those who were unable to attend the final service attached are a copy of the Final Order of Service and a Souvenir Leaflet produced for the occasion and these can be accessed by clicking on the links below.
