Welcome To The Winchmore Hill United Reformed Church – “The Church By The Bridge”

Witnessing In Winchmore Hill For Over 275 Years

Welcome to our website and we very much hope to have the opportunity, and pleasure, in welcoming you through the doors of our church and yours – “The Church By The Bridge” – very soon.

We have been open to our congregation and visitors for well over 275 years and as a church we have had a long and treasured association with our local community.    

Many things have changed over the years but the one thing that hasn’t is our desire to spread the message and love of Christ and the Christian way of life.  This is reflected in our aim to serve people in the community and to offer a place of worship and refuge for all those who are seeking something that may be missing in their lives.

We offer support, prayer, companionship and empathy during tough times – a shared humanity, fed by faith in a loving God. 

Equally, we are here to rejoice and celebrate with you those special moments in our lives – Christmas, Easter, weddings, baptisms just to name a few. 

You are warmly invited to Sunday morning services at 10.30 a.m. as well as to any of the events and activities which are regularly held on our premises – more details can be found on this website.    Whatever you are seeking, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Church Services

We feel that we should not meet together for the time being owing to Covid. 

If you would like to receive emails sharing ‘virtual’ worship on Sundays and occasional church news, please send your email address to 

Similarly our ministers lead Sunday morning worship via Zoom and a link can be sent to you in response to an e-mail or ’phone call.

No personal data will be shared and will be used only for the purpose it is given.

Happy to help                                                                               We are not a ‘fifth emergency service’ but we are happy to help if we can.  E-mail or call either 020 8374 0509 for Rev Melanie or 020 8886 7421 for Rev Jim.

Without a ‘webmaster’ at present, the web site is not properly up-to-date.  If you have the skills and would be willing to volunteer them for a monthly sweep of the contents, please get in touch! 

Important Notice:   Safeguarding is taken very seriously by our church and accordingly, we have a policy in place which can be found here alongside our Data Protection policy.
