Welcome

Welcome to New Malden United Reformed Church.

We are a United Reformed Church based in the south-west London town of New Malden in the UK. Our mission is to worship God and, following the example of Jesus, work together to serve the church, the local community, and the world.

Our minister is Revd Peter Flint. Peter joined us in 2014 and our Bridge Minister who we share with Kingston United Reformed Church is the Revd Suk In Lee, who works with the Korean Community. We also share a Korean Missionary So Yong Jung whose primary work is with Korean Children.

Sunday services are conducted by our Ministers and Local Preachers

About us

Church history

Our church has served the community in and around New Malden since its foundation as a Congregational Church on 20th April 1881 when eighteen people covenanted together; they included the Woodroffe, Derry and Pascall families together with others. It was opened for services on 3rd May 1881.

Community

In 1972, we became the United Reformed Church when we joined with the Presbyterian Church in a step towards unity of the Christian faith.

Over the last 26 years, the church has had a strong sense of fellowship and has sought to be part of the community.

What we believe

The United Reformed Church is a family of Christians, worshipping in the name of Jesus in about 1500 local churches from Orkney to Cornwall.

‘United’ is an important part of our story. We started when English Presbyterians merged with English and Welsh Congregationalists in 1972. Churches of Christ joined in 1981 and Scottish Congregationalists in 2000. We still work as closely as we can with Christians of all traditions and styles.

‘Reformed’ means that we delight in the Bible, we do not fear change, and we try to run our churches in ways that take everyone’s insight and contribution seriously.

We are one ‘Church’. We aim to grow through supporting one another and taking decisions together.

All our tasks and posts are open to women as fully as to men. We are an intercultural church, where people with varied ethnic roots enrich each other’s Christian living. Our people hold a range of opinions about theology and church life. In the words of the denominations Statement of Nature, Faith and Order (1990) together we are firmly committed to ‘God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The living God, the only God, ever to be praised.’
