Our Services


The only regular services currently taking place in the church building are:

Sundays - Morning Services @ 10:30
(Holy Communion is on the 1st Sunday of the month)

Tuesdays - Bible Bite Talks @ 14:00

For details of any one off services or activities, please see our SURC Events page

Our building with its distinctive clock tower is in the High Street, see How To Find Us, and has a comfortable meeting area.

The nearest car park, a pay & display, is only 50 metres away in Landguard Road

We will try to livestream these services to our Facebook page,
but if this does not prove possible, we will record the service and
post it onto the page as soon as possible afterwards.
You don't need to be a Facebook user to see this

Should you have missed seeing the service live, or if you wish to catch-up with a previous service,
whether it be in video or audio format, don't worry, head to our Sermons On Line page

But - change is in the air…

When we moved to streaming live on Facebook, we extended our copyright licence to allow us to use professional recordings in services when we don’t have sufficient resources to lead songs live. However, Facebook often mutes those parts of the videos because of concerns about breach of copyright.

We are therefore going to switch the live stream to YouTube during December. This should be just as easy for anyone to access and watch live or a later time. 

We will clearly publicise the new links – and, in any event, it will still be possible to find the video through a link on the Facebook page.

Sunday Worship


10:30 - Morning Worship

A time of worship and learning for all ages

 - Holy Communion is on the first Sunday of the month


14:00 - 15:00

 This is usually led by the Minister and comprises systematic teaching through a book of the Bible taking a passage each week.

If you find Sunday mornings a bit busy, you may prefer to come on a Tuesday when there is plenty of space to spread out and keep safe.


Government restrictions may have been relaxed but

the Virus is still with us:

We would ask you to be considerate to other church users:


- Sanitise your hands on entry and also if you have used our toilets.

- Please wear a face covering.

- Sit anywhere but leave a single seat space between household groups.

- Keep a distance of one metre when greeting one another.

- Be aware of the needs of others, particularly on entry and exit.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
