Airevale United Reformed Churches

Brotherton - Castleford - Knottingley


At the United Reformed Church, we're thankful for the freedom that we have to worship God in our own way, especially as we were once a persecuted and suffering Church. In our Nicene Creed, we declare that "We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church". In that 'catholic' (i.e. 'universal') church, we now include Christian denominations from the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Orthodox, Methodist, Baptist and Pentecostal traditions. We uphold the right of all Christian denominations to worship God peacefully in their own way in every country in the world.

Locally, we belong to the ecumenical organisation Churches Together in Castleford and Churches Together in Knottingley, in which we join representatives of the Methodist Church, Church of England, Salvation Army , Independent Evangelical Churches and Roman Catholic Church in activities that emphasise our common purpose.

The United Reformed Church  is a member of Action of Churches Together  (ACT) and Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI), which bring together churches from the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Orthodox, Reformed and Pentecostal traditions. CTBI liaises with ecumenical bodies in Britain and Ireland, including ACT, as well as ecumenical organizations at European and world levels. The work of ACT and CTBI includes church life, church and society, mission, inter-faith relations, international affairs and racial justice. They provide a forum for joint decision-making and enable churches to take action together.

The United Reformed Church is involved in other joint initiatives with Christians of other denominations throughout the world.
