Covid has proved to be traumatic to many of us, and disruptive to our personal, family and church lives. It has been a psychological destabilising element in our decision making mechanism as well, because sometimes we just don’t know what the right decision is in connection with scheduled actions and plans affected by the pandemic. We have been told by the government it is all about data not dates when we can go back to normality, when we can re-open our church for physical worship and gathering. The data seem not very worrying, infection rate and death rate are decreasing, yet the psychological element is the fear that what if a third wave breaks out – like it did in many places of the world -, new mutants cannot be so clearly defeated by the available vaccination, so it is better to be safe than sorry and wait a bit longer.

Sharing God's Love in a practical way has always been our aim, whether that be overseas or in our local community. We support overseas mission projects via Commitment for Life and Nailsea Water Project. We also support Caring at Christmas, Children's Hospice South West and local community projects by raising funds through special events and offerings.

Image of Rev'd John Gray 2014Dear Friends,
My name is Revd John Gray. I have been a URC minister to Nailsea URC since 2014. Prior to that I was a local minister to Horfield and Argyle Morley URCs only, and in 2014 Nailsea URC was added to the pastorate.

My theological training, upbringing and background is Calvinistic, or rather Presbyterian, however, today I could not “be boxed” into any theological platform and movement. Perhaps, I would like to be regarded as a Spirit-led, Bible-driven, Green thinking humble servant of God, who is yet quite confident in our team-work of pastoral, teaching and preaching ministry at Nailsea URC.

What's it all about?

Church Membership is the way in which Christians who have made their home in the local church are encouraged to express their commitment to that congregation of God’s people.

Who are they?

Well Church Members are not Super-Christians, just ordinary people who meet regularly to try and make sure that the continued life and witness of the church is in line with how God wants it to be. You can still be effective within the life of the church without being a member, but only members have a vote at Church Meeting, and are therefore the people who, as a body, make decisions.
