This is the United Reformed Church’s exciting focus on lifelong Christian discipleship and mission and moves beyond a set of programmes into the world where each step we take is accompanied by Jesus, eventually bringing about an emerging culture change in the Church and society. As you engage in Walking the Way we hope that your own understanding of what being a Christian disciple deepens.Walking the way resources

Prayer Cycle for Churches in Synod
Please include the congregation and all involved with the Churches in your prayers
Newburgh is a ‘Lang Toon’ with a church at each end and that poses difficulties and opportunities for the URC Church which is currently planning a major refurbishment. What if these two congregations, of equal numbers, were to begin thinking about some form of ecumenical cooperation, should the URC carry on planning to raise and spend a very considerable sum of money on its refurbishment? Delay to let something happen eventually, means rising costs for the internal work being considered.
Lord God, even as we praise your Holy name, we wonder how often you have rescued your people from the horns of dilemmas, for dilemma is what your people of Newburgh URC are facing as they seek to further your mission in their community. God, guide us, we pray, and give us wisdom to discern where your Spirit is leading us. Amen.
We bring to you the Churches in the Synod of Scotland
Churches that feel they can no longer continue to sustain a congregation have decided to close
Churches who are looking to their future vision with new development potentials
Churches who are at a crossroad in their faith journey as they wrestle with decisions
Bless them all and give them the courage to better Your Kingdom
