churchWelcome to the United Reformed Church at Haverhill, Suffolk (locally known as the Old Independent Church or O.I.C).    

The O.I.C. has been present in  Haverhill since 1662.  We are a happy congregation with a mixture of age groups and talents. Our Minister, Rev Elaine Colechin, leads worship on regular basis during the year.  

The Church is the people and we believe in being available where we can both for each other and those around us; providing a base for church and community activities.

We are a small congregation but a growing one covering all ages including a number of young families.   Our Zoom Junior Church created the lovely picture below for Harvest 2020

Our mission statement is Jesus Is Lord and our vision is to Go Out & Make Disciples. We believe that the Good News of Jesus Christ is something to celebrate.

We have re-opened on Sunday Mornings, but we would advise that you check the Facebook Page before attending, in case circumstances have to change at very short notice.   Social Distancing must be adhered to and a Face Covering worn at all times.  There is a one way system for moving around the main Church Building.

Sunday Services usually alternate between the main Church Building from Easter onwards, and the Church Hall after Harvest and during the winter months.       For information on how we are continuing take part in worship activities at home see our Services tab or contact us.

Please see News & Events or Regular Activities to check details.

So please don’t be nervous, just drop on by, as a warm welcome awaits you.    

We look forward to seeing you,  

Elders and Congregation
