The United Reformed Church
The United Reformed Church is situated in Nethergate Street. Known to many of the locals as "the Chapel" it is and has been an important part of worship in Clare. This can be seen not only within it's own framework but also the Church enjoys playing an active part in "Churches Together in Clare".
The URC at Clare shares it's Minister, Rev David Dones, with the URC at Wickhambrook. The regular Sunday worship at 10.30am is led by David and other visiting Ministers, lay preachers and friends. A small but lively Junior Church takes place at the same time as the Service with the Children joining the congregation towards the end. They are very much a valued part of our Church Family. Bible Study and Prayer Groups meet on a monthly basis.
A warm welcome is offered to all who wish to visit and "listen in" to any part of the URC 's life.
