Ipswich Road URC

The church here on Ipswich Road is a sign of that life. We have been here since 1952 when a group of pioneers from the then Princes Street Congregational Church came to found a church to serve the new estates at Eaton Rise and Tuckswood.

We are part of the Norwich Area United Reformed Churches (NAURC), which includes St.Peters Jessopp Road URC,and Trinity URC in Norwich, as well as the URCs in Wymondham and Wroxham & Hoveton . This group currently has no paid ministers. We seek to work together for the sake of God’s kingdom in Norfolk. For more information on the NAURC, please click here

We believe that Jesus came to show us how to live, and to offer us forgiveness and new life through his death and resurrection. Jesus’ Gospel (‘Gospel’ literally means ‘good news’) drives us to serve our communities and work for justice and peace in the world. We believe, as Jesus did, that Jesus came to give life in all it’s fullness (John 10:10).

We are an open and inclusive church and seek to involve everyone in our life and work, partnering with local residents and organisations for the good of all.

Our Vision is
“To be a vibrant and sustainable Christian community, called by God to grow actively in faith, love and commitment to Jesus Christ.
We believe he invites us to follow him and, empowered by the Holy Spirit to live the Gospel of God’s love for all people. 

We will continue to seek opportunities to share the Good News of Jesus in our local community and beyond, bringing hope into a hurting world.”
