About us

We are a small friendly Church in Wood Street in Royal Wootton Bassett.

Wootton Bassett Congregational Church was founded at the end of the 18th century and the present building dates from 1825. In 1972, Church members voted to become part of the ”United Reformed Church” – a new denomination formed by the union of Congregational and Presbyterian Churches.

We are in a Group Pastorate with Malmesbury United Reformed Church. Our Minister leads Sunday worship at least once a month and is in the church and town on other days. On other Sundays we have visiting preachers. They are a group of Ministers, (from several denominations) and lay preachers who we welcome, each bringing different approaches, but basically following a standard form of service. We join quiet contemplative moments of prayer with a great enjoyment of singing. The URC hymnbook “Rejoice and Sing” is a treasure trove of hymns, from the Congregationalist Isaac Watts’ ‘When I survey the wondrous cross’, to todays writers like Swindon’s Fred Kaan and Graham Kendrick.
