The Ministers, Children & Youth Pastors, and Elders of Witham United Reformed Church condemn all forms of racism and will not tolerate any form of racist behaviour or language. We stand with our Black friends in calling for a complete end to all forms of racial discrimination and injustice, and will not stop until this is achieved.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Covid-19 update

Please note that due to the coronavirus all events, including Sunday services are cancelled until further notice.

The Centre office email is checked regularly so if you need help or are self-isolating please do let us know on info@withamurc.org.uk.

You can continue to view and listen to services on the Services page, or via the Facebook.

The church buildings are currently closed to everyone, and the telephone is only infrequently monitored.

The church has left the building!

Covid-19 update

The Ministers and Elders met (via video conference) on 14th July and considered the reopening of the church building for Sunday worship. At this time, we consider the risks of infection from Covid-19 to be too great, and will therefore continue with the current on-line and printed service forms. We are working to allow the church to be opened at least one day per week for private prayer.

Black Lives Matter – How to be a white ally

The widespread protests at the killing of George Floyd by a white policeman in the early summer of 2020 have cast the glare of attention on racism across the world. Racism is not just acts of violence or hate against Black people or other people of colour. The statistics on health, education, employment and income show that racial inequality permeates Britain – and Witham. While those of us who are white might readily abhor overt acts of racism, it is not something we are likely to have experienced directly. That lack of experience can make it difficult to properly understand

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis
