Sunday service is held at 11.00 AM and it follows an Order of Service where music is usually a central part. Every service starts and ends with the congregation singing as the Bible is being brought in and out of the main hall, and the Cheerful Singers also play an important part of the role in lifting the spirits in song. We have a Junior Church for the children, and Communion is held normally the third Sunday of each month.
Our congregation is very diverse. Our members are women, men and children of all ages and from different parts of the world. Independently of your background, you are welcome to join us for worship and encouragement.
Tooting has recently been described as the trendiest place in London! Its residents may raise an eyebrow at that, but it’s certainly a vibrant and interesting place to live, work or visit. It is culturally mixed and the different communities generally live harmoniously together. The area around Tooting Broadway underground station is extremely lively at peak times of day —never a dull moment! Tooting URC is just off Mitcham Road, a busy main road packed with shops, restaurants and including a library. Further up Mitcham Road is Amen Corner, on the way to Streatham.
The church is on Rookstone Road, a residential street housing families of a variety of cultures and faiths. Tooting is not an affluent area, but it is becoming more popular. Just up the hill is Tooting Bec Common, bustling with life especially at the weekends.
The Balham and Tooting Community Association is a group that brings together representatives from many of the faiths and cultures that live locally. The churches have a strong input into this group, which holds regular activities aimed at bringing people together to celebrate social cohesion.
