The United Reformed Church came into being in 1972 as an amalgamation of the Congregational and Presbyterian Churches. The Churches of Christ joined in 1981, and the Congregational Union of Scotland in 1998. The URC believes that all Christians are members of the same church, seeking to follow Jesus and to help others do the same.
The worshipping community at Redland Park URC has the following vision statement:
Trusting in God, with Jesus at the centre of our lives, and taking our lead from the Holy Spirit, the congregation and members of Redland Park URC seek to serve our local community and the wider world by being welcoming, multi-cultural, caring, and mission-focused disciples of Jesus. We will continue to welcome all, being inclusive of age, ethnicity or sexual orientation harness our skills to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ support, nourish and encourage each other to grow in the Spirit, and tend God’s creation so that Here may Thy glory honoured be, Here let us know Thy grace; Here may our children's children see The beauty of Thy face. (Basil Sims, Redland Park minister, 1948-1960)
