Church Links

Christ Church belongs to the United Reformed Church (URC), and within this it is a Church within the URC's Eastern Synod.

Within the Eastern Synod Christ Church belongs to the South Cambridgeshire and North Hertfordshire Linked Pastorate, comprised of four churches which share one minister; the Rev. Duncan Goldie:

  • Christ Church URC, Buntingford
  • Bassingbourn URC
  • Great Chishill URC
  • Melbourn URC

Locally, in and around Buntingford, there is no longer any formal Ecumenical collaboration between the local churches.  The minsters of the three denominations meet regularly and our churches do support one another and come together for various activities through the church year.  The three churches in Buntingford are:

  • Christ Church (United Reformed Church)
  • St. Peter's (Church of England)
  • St. Richard's (Roman Catholic)

Outside of Buntingford there are a number of Anglican village churches the closest being:

  • St. Mary's the Virgin (C of E) at Westmill
  • St. Mary's (C or E) at Aspenden
  • Holy Trinity (C of E) at Throcking
  • St. John the Baptist (C of E) at Cottered
  • St. Giles (C of E) at Wyddial
