Services

Sunday Morning Worship

We meet for Sunday morning worship at 10.45am.  In parallel with this there is a Sunday Club for children aged 4 to 11 which runs from 10.30am to 12 in the rear hall.  On the first Sunday of each quarter there is a "Parade Service" where the Uniformed Organisations take part in the first part of the service and then join in with the Sunday Club activities for the remaining time.  On the third Sunday of each month the service includes the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

Sunday Evening Worship

Sunday evening services commence at 6.00pm and normally take the form of hymns, prayers and Bible discussion.  The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday evening of each month.

Wednesday at One

The church hosts a short lunchtime service, Wednesday-at-One, which as its name suggests is at 1pm and lasts for about 20 to 30 minutes.  This is led by ministers and lay-people from churches in the Hinckley area and is attended by people from all denominations.

If you wish to seek Marriage at the church please contact us using the list of people on the "Make Contact" page of this website.  Being a free church, the majority of requests for marriage at Hinckley URC come from those who have some relationship with our Church.  However we will listen to all those who approach us.  We see the main criteria for marriage in Church as being the wedding service itself, the vows made before God, and to one another - and a commitment to Christian values within marriage.  We aim to make the marriage ceremony one of integrity and meaning for all those taking part.  As part of our commitment to Christian marriage and to the couple, we ask them to participate in an interview with the minister and to be regular attendees at Church before the ceremony itself.

It is our practice to celebrate the arrival of a new child with either a service of Infant Baptism or a service of Dedication.  Baptism in the URC is a once in a lifetime event, so if the child is baptised as an infant, a second baptism later as an adult would not be an option.  For this reason some parents opt for a service of dedication as an infant, allowing the option of baptism later in life when they have come to their own Christian commitment.  Either option is taken as part of a normal Church service. Please contact the Church for further information.
