Back to the Bible
What happened on the Cross?

David and Mavis came to Woking URC when David retired from St Andrew’s URC, Walton-on-Thames in 2008 and his earlier pastorates have been in St Helen’s, Blackburn & Tockholes and Morecambe.

This Service, broadcast live from the Church can be found via the Church’s website – our YouTube Channel  or via our Facebook page. There is an archive of service recordings,   including this one, on our website which can be viewed at home.  If you would like some help to access any of them please email – .  If you would like a recording of this Service, and any other, they are available in various formats by request. Please contact the Church Office.


The Church is fitted with a loop system.  The words of hymns and songs, and Bible readings etc are displayed on the screen.  As the Service is live streamed you (and / or your family) could be on camera as efforts are made to help those watching at home to feel a part of the worshipping congregation in the Church,  if you have any concerns regarding this please speak to an elder or welcomer..

Although a matter of personal choice now with regard to the wearing of masks, please assist in this transition period by wearing your mask during singing, unless medically exempt, and at times of close contact when others may feel more comfortable if you wear one.
