‘The sun shone on London for 5 October 1972. Three thousand people, Congregationalists and Presbyterians, gathered to become the United Reformed Church, celebrating the fruition of nine years’ work and full of hope for the future. Leading churchmen danced in the aisle. They did not rejoice for the creation of a new Church, they hailed the dawn of a new age of the reunion of Churches.’
In this highly readable account, to mark the URC’s jubilee year, Stephen Tomkins takes us through the story of the Church from 1972 to 2022.
