About the group

The Group is made up of three fellowships – Hawkenbury URC, Rusthall URC, and United Emmanuel a United Reformed/Methodist Church. Each has its own individual characteristics, but all offer a very warm welcome, whatever your background, and whoever you are. Why not pop along and find out more about us – we would love to meet you.

We belong to the West Kent and East Sussex Synod Area of the Southern Synod of the United Reformed Church, and the Weald of Kent Circuit of the South East District of the Methodist Church. We also belong to Tunbridge Wells Churches Together.

Births, Marriages and Deaths

All three fellowships celebrates the Sacrament of Baptism in the form of both believers’ baptism and infant baptism of believers’ children. We also offer a ceremony of blessing, naming and thanksgiving for babies and young children recognising that whilst we want to truly thank God for the gift of children their commitment of faith is their own. Contact the minister here for further information.

All three church buildings are registered for the “solemnization of marriage” (a fancy term that means we are able to conduct weddings, but not same-sex weddings which is a separate legal registration)

The death of a loved one can be a very difficult time and if we can help in any way please do get in touch.

Support our Work

We are always delighted to receive prayer support. If you wish to give financial support please contact the relevant Church Treasurer here, indicating if it is to support a specific area of work, or perhaps is in memory of someone.
