We get together every Sunday morning at 10.00am to worship God. Our informal service is suitable for all ages and is led by our own Minister and other worship leaders. The children and young people are invited to leave part way through and a varied and interesting range of bible based activities are organised. We have occasional Café Style services where we all come together. Refreshments are served after the service and everyone is welcome to stay. This gives an opportunity to chat together and get to know one another better.
We appreciate that many people lead busy lives and this may prevent some people from being over involved in the life of the church whereas others are keen to play a more active part. At KURC we value all people and any contribution of time and skills which they can offer.
Prayer, Pastoral Care
Our church life is underpinned by prayer and we seek opportunities to offer prayer as whole church and times of one to one prayer. If you have any specific prayer requests, please speak to the Minister or one of the leadership team. Alternatively you can contact the Minister in confidence.
The Minister and leadership team take overall responsibility for the pastoral care of all the church family. We also have a team of pastoral visitors who, where appropriate, will visit those in hospital or in their own homes. Pastoral Care is offered to assist in practical and spiritual needs.
The church is self funded, with many people contributing to the financial life of the church, as they are able. We support of a number of charities including Compassion UK, Christian Aid, Harrogate Homeless Project, Women’s Refuge, DEC, URC Yorkshire Synod & United Reformed Church (National).
We have two groups: ‘See and Discover’ is for children aged 0-10. We play games, sing songs and listen to Bible stories, then have time for craft and play. Parents of very young children are encouraged to stay with their children until they are independent and happy within the group. ‘Explore’ is for youngsters aged 11 upwards, who are discovering more of what it means to follow Jesus 24/7 and how the Bible can help us. We have our own activities and chat over a hot chocolate!
Currently however, we only have the ‘See and Discover’ group which is active, , should we be joined by youngsters aged 11 upwards, then the ‘Explore’ group will be reinstated.
Children and Young People are an integral part of our Church family that our Charter affirms Charter for Children in the Church
We believe that: 1. Children are equal partners with adults in the life of the church. 2. The full diet of Christian worship is for children as well as adults. 3. Learning is for the whole church, adults and children. 4. Fellowship is for all – each belonging meaningfully to the rest. 5. Service is for children to give, as well as adults. 6. The call to evangelism comes to all God’s people of whatever age. 7. The Holy Spirit speaks powerfully through children as well as adults. 8. The discovery and development of gifts in children and adults is a key function of the church. 9. As a church community we must learn to do only those things in separate age groups which we cannot in all conscience do together. 10. The concept of the ‘Priesthood of all Believers’ includes children.
The group offers parents, grandparents and carers a chance to chat over a coffee whilst the little ones play and sit for a drink and biscuit together.
If you are interested and would like to see what happens at Red Door Playgroup, please call in during any of the sessions.

God has called us to reach out to our community and in His Name, should you need it, we offer you a listening ear and prayer for yourself , your family or any situation that troubles you. Please speak to any one of our helpers or our Minister who is usually in the hall.
The Prayer Group meets fortnightly on a Thursday afternoon from 3.30pm. till 4.30pm. in the church hall. Prayer is offered for the pastoral needs of our church and also for family, friends, the local community and the world. We thank God for His gift of talking and listening to Him in prayer and seeing ways in which he answers. Currently, we are focusing mainly on our Church, its mission, buildings and future in our community. We are trying to discern God’s will for us as a church and the direction we must take.
