I think recently our sense of togetherness has been challenged because our church services and church activities have been suspended, physical contact and any meetings minimised, socially distanced or avoided. It is hard to maintain our fellowship without physical contact, church services etc. Of course, the Internet connects us all, we use on-line faith resources, email and video call each other, arrange Zoom meetings and Zoom and streamed services. We do enjoy this “virtual togetherness”, however it cannot replace the social part of our fellowship.

Coronavirus spread is the context for One World Week at the end of this October, during which we celebrate our togetherness and oneness, as usual. The central theme for this year is “It’s Our World – Let’s make it better.”

Induction Rev.d Janos Nagy

Dear Friends,
I am John, a Hungarian and British national who moved to England with my family 12 years ago. In 2002 I had a transfer from the UCC, Calvin Synod, USA to the British URC. Prior to that, I served in the Hungarian Reformed Church as a local church minister, a part time teacher and an editor for a church publishing house.

Since May 2002, I have served at Horfield and Argyle Morley URCs in Bristol, and I am still their minister, so they must be a very patient people!

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.
