Archived News from our Churches in the Synod
Saturday 10th June saw a large gathering of adults and children from churches across the Eastern Synod, to celebrate the theme of 'Feasts and Festivals'. Eastern Synod's Big Day Out took place at Trinity Park Ipswich. Glorious weather and a range of activities greeted participants, both young and old. A splendid day of worship, workshops, crafts, art, fun and laughter were shared by all. What a great day of celebration.
A year of celebration 2017, was a year for the whole United Reformed Church to celebrate all that we have been, are now and are called to be as we continue walking the way of Jesus Christ today.
It’s 500 years since the Lutheran Reformation, 100 years since the ordination of Constance Coltman, the first woman to enter congregational ministry, 45 years since the URC came into being, more than 80 years since Pilots started and 25 years since Commitment for Life began.

Walking the Way/URC Pilots Big Day Out Film 2017 - Following a very successful URC Big Day Out, we have produced a short film giving an overview of the day, thinking about the URC’s renewed focus in Missional Discipleship on Walking the Way and how Pilots offers us all a great example of what it means to walk with Jesus.
