We are a gathered group of people of all ages believing in the Christian faith and taking the teaching and example of Jesus Christ seriously. In this way we seek God's guidance for our individual lives and the way we live in our communities.

We believe it is important that:

  • we regularly worship and pray in fellowship together;
  • we strive for personal and corporate spiritual growth;
  • we continue to learn from the Bible;
  • we live out our faith in service to this community and the wider world.

To be a church faithful in worship, responding in joy and reflection to God's love and Word.

We regularly worship together and with other local Christians, offering praise and prayer and exploring the Good News of Jesus Christ as we have it though the Bible.

Details of Sunday worship are on the main notice board.  Mid-week worship with the Burford Day Centre is offered at 12-15 on Wednesdays

To provide accessible and meaningful worship and education for people of all ages.

Worship includes Communion once a month. Services are varied in style and all ages worship together, with younger people then learning and worshipping in their own groups. A creche is available.

Open groups meet during the week for Bible Study and discussion of topical issues. Occasional short courses are arranged.

To reach out into our local community, meeting needs as we are able.

The Burford Day Centre, intended primarily for those living alone, runs on Wednesdays including lunch.

Our youth organisations, including Scouting and Guiding, are open to all.

Our premises are available to the local community.

A Charity Christmas Card shop runs from late October to early December

To respond to needs in the wider community.

We take an active interest in social issues and in the local and overseas work of brother and sister Christians and those of other faiths and none. Considerable funds are raised for charitable agencies and we engage in specific projects through the Council for World Mission and the Commitment for Life programme.

To provide support and fellowship for all who wish it.

Those associated with the congregation are cared for through a system of pastoral oversight for which the Elders are responsible. A Prayer Network is open to requests for prayer and 'Palmers Prayers' is published monthly.

Social occasions are arranged from time to time.

'A Place for Coffee' is open on Saturdays from 10.30 until noon.



We are a congregation of the United Reformed Church, which was formed in 1972 from Presbyterian, and Congregational traditions and later joined by fellowships of the Churches of Christ. Our own history mirrors this as congregations in the area have united.

We are a fully participating member of Churches Together in Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill. We share a Minister with the United Reformed Church in Winchmore Hill and Ponders End United Reformed Church.

On a wider scale, we belong to the Thames North Synod of the URC, and as a denomination the URC is a member of the Council for World Mission and of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches.


There is more information (including contact 'phone numbers) on the outside notice boards outside the church and in the halls foyer. Please help yourself to a weekly notice sheet and/or the monthly Magazine! On Sundays, don't hesitate to ask an Elder (they wear coloured badges) or any member of the congregation.

If you would like to know more about this church or learn more about the Christian faith, or would like someone to visit you, please use the notice sheet tear-off slip and put it in the 'Welcome' box by the main door of the church, or hand it to an Elder.

The Church Secretary is Martin van Staveren
