Welcome to Dorking United Reformed Church in the heart of Surrey
Dorking United Reformed Church is a busy community church located in the centre of the town.
We offer a warm and friendly welcome to all those who attend either our regular worship services or any of the many activities that take place on our church premises.
If you need any information about our worship times, community activities or seek our help, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Living Jesus’ Love
This is a statement of our aim and goal. It doesn’t mean that we always do it, but by “running towards the goal” we hope that we will fulfill Jesus’ command “to love one another”.
We aim to show Jesus’ love through our pastoral work within the church and through working with other churches and organisations to meet the needs of people in our local community and beyond.
We hope that, through this church, you will experience God’s love and the meaning, purpose and hope that the Christian faith brings.
Joining us at Dorking United Reformed Church
Our Church Community is diverse, being made up of people of all age groups and walks of life.
We have sought to develop the life of the church accordingly so that many differing needs are met:
- Here you can come to worship God
- Here you can meet with Jesus Christ who is alive in our hearts
- Here you can find space and refuge in times of trouble
- Here you will find support and comfort in our pastoral care
- Here you can experience companionship and build lasting friendships
- Here there are opportunities for children and younger people
- Here you can always find a warm welcome
As a church, Dorking URC aspires to be inclusive to people of all backgrounds and in the summer of 2019 the Elders and Church Meeting approved the following statement to reflect this aspiration:
“We are seeking to be an inclusive Church – church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
