Regrettably, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are following church and government advice to suspend all public worship and church organised gatherings. During this time of challenge and crisis we will continue Living God’s Love in new ways and we will do so in faith, hope and love.
A warm welcome to Purley United Reformed Church. You are always welcome. Please come in. This is after all your church.
