Welcome to Abington Avenue URC

Our Mission Statement:

‘To celebrate God’s love together, to grow in Christ and to serve our neighbour’

Hi, welcome to Abington Avenue URC (AAURC), we are a Christian community of faith, that welcomes people of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities, drawn together by Jesus Christ to worship, proclaim and serve God. We seek to be Church that honours God in all we do. Enabled by his Spirit we seek to explore, discover and act upon what it means to be His people today.

Our heart is for compassion and justice for all; we aim to help everyone (at whatever stage in their journey with God) to have a closer and deeper relationship with Him through developing their discipleship; we strive to foster a sense of belonging, peace, unity and harmony within the diversity of who we are as the Body of Christ and deepen the fellowship and commitment of Church members to one another.

We are passionate about worshipping God aiming to connect the congregation through authentic, sincere, relevant worship services of a good quality.

We are eager in our desire of helping others discover the joy of new life through a relationship with Jesus Christ. As a Church community we believe the good news of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus is for all who turn to him in repentance and faith. Whether you are young or old we believe a full life is to be found through Him.

We’d love to welcome you to one of our Sunday services, one of growth groups (that meet regularly during the year) or to any of our activities and groups. If you have questions and are searching, we hope you will feel AAURC is a place that can encourage you on your journey.

With Every Blessing,

Jane Wade (Minister)

NEW URC WEBSITE – follow the links and take a look


Over the weekend, the URC website,, had a transformation. This is a project that Catherine, our Digital Content Officer, has been working on for months and so firstly, thanks to her and to VTS for delivering a superb new website.

Later this week, the old website will be available at for older content that you need to access. Some pages on the new website are a work in progress and these will be finished in the next few weeks. Please get in touch if there is an urgent page missing, broken link or item not working.

Please remember that websites always evolve and are never finished. This new website puts visitors first, not the church structures, and some sections have changed or been reordered, in collaboration with the teams responsible for that content. Many pages that weren’t being looked at have not come across.

And, unlike the old website, this one has a search engine that works! 😊

Please share this with your Synods, teams and networks, and do let me know what you think.

With warmest wishes and thanks,
