Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

The congregation were asked to write down their wishes for the new year. Click on this "Word Picture" to see them all.

Welcome to our Church

Known locally as the “Church by the arch” we are just off the Square in the centre of Romsey - the archway was the gateway to the old Benedictine Abbey. Our church family welcomes everyone. We are an open fellowship, welcoming all denominations to join us in our church.

Each Sunday we have all age worship at 10.30am. Our young people join us for part of the service and then join their own groups.

Our sister church is in the village of Braishfield, opposite the village hall. Founded in 1818 its friendly and active congregation plays a valuable part in the life of the village.

Our new minister, Revd Mike Perrott, MA was inducted on 5 November 2017. He was welcomed by the congregation of this church and Braishfield URC, civic representatives, representatives from the other churches and the business community.

 

Baptisms

Every child is special. It is good to celebrate the gift of new life and to give thanks to God. We welcome children and adults and offer two services: a service of Baptism (sometimes known as ‘Christening) or a service of thanksgiving and blessing . The sacrament normally takes place within the 10.30 am Sunday Worship.
