The United Reformed Churchwas formed in 1972 by the union of the Congregational Church in England and Wales and the Presbyterian Church of England. It has continued to express its deep commitment to the visible unity of the whole Church. In 1981 it entered into union with the Re-formed Churches of Christ and in the year 2000 with the Congregational Union of Scotland. Though one of the smaller of Britain’s ‘mainstream’ denominations, it stands in the historic Reformed tradition, whose member denominations make up the largest single strand of Protestantism.
