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. 

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.

For up to date weekly information on services please keep an eye on our Facebook Page @OldIndependent. We continue to live stream our worship on our page each Sunday morning at 10.45am.

Please see News & Events or Regular Activities to check ‘what’s on’.   You’ll find we have regular Coffee Mornings and a variety of regular community groups who hire our buildings. 

Our  own Junior Church have told the Easter Story in 2022 as you can see below, via a zoom session. 

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.

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 see our Services tab or contact us.

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

We look forward to seeing you,  

Elders and Congregation
