Princes Street URC History

Princes Street URC 

Princes Street United Reformed Church was founded in December 1819 and closed on 25th October 2020.

We are the daughter church of Princes Street URC in Norwich. It therefore seems a good idea to include something of their history on this page.


Barbara Searle wrote this booklet “Two hundred years of faith and service” to celebrate the history of Princes Street, which was circulated at their closing service. The booklet tracks a remarkable link between the history of Princes Street Church and the history of Norwich.





In December 2019, Princes Street celebrated 200 years of ministry in Norwich.

They produced this short booklet which can be downloaded here





This poem was written by Barbara Searle, a member of Princes Street URC, for their closing service on 25th October 2020 and expresses what life was like in the church
