LINKS WITH OTHER CHURCHES AND ORGANISATIONS
LOCAL (CHESHAM AREA)
The church is an active member of Churches Together for Chesham (incorporating
the Chesham Local Ecumenical Partnership) through which many of the town's
churches work together closely and profitably. These activities include:
- Backpackers, a Christian adventure for young people which happens for a week every summer.
- Rendezvous, a mid-week ecumenical lunchtime service on the first Wednesday of the month at 12:15pm, hosted by the United Reformed Church and led by each of the participating churches in Chesham in turn.
- Our church, like several others in Chesham, is a referral partner for Chiltern Foodbank
- Chesham Community Fridge Making good surplus food available free of charge to avoid scandalous waste. All are invited to come and collect food that would otherwise be dumped.
Information about Chesham can be found on Wikipedia which also includes links to several of the other churches in Chesham.
The United Reformed Church plays an active role in the Council of Churches
for Britain and Ireland (CCBI), and Churches Together in England (CTE).
The service on 10th September 2023 referenced this video on Climate feedak loops in the family talk.
The URC shares in the Conference of European Churches, the World
Alliance of Reformed Churches, and the World Council of churches (WCC).
The United Reformed Church in Chesham also enjoys links with other churches
around the world through the Council for World Mission, an international
partnership of churches in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and the
Pacific, through which resources are shared for missionary enterprises
in 20 countries.
