Endings and beginnings are always important. Chiswell Green and Bricket Wood United Reformed Churches face both in the days ahead and we are excited by the prospect. The amalgamation of Chiswell Green and Bricket Wood United Reformed Churches is a very significant moment for our communities. It has been a process that has not been rushed. Rightly we have taken our time to bring these two faith communities together. After 135 years of witness and service to Bricket Wood, losing the building and the service it has offered to the community was not a choice made without due consideration. Our hope is that amalgamating on the Chiswell Green site will enable that service to continue and ensure a bright future for the newly formed united church.
Being new has enabled us to rename the fellowship and Greenwood United Reformed Church seemed the most appropriate name for this fresh expression of Christian worship, witness and service. Capturing something of both the constituent churches and connecting with one of the key areas of the local community seemed right. We believe God continues to lead us and are excited by the prospects as we move forward. We believe it is important to serve our local community, worship Sunday by Sunday (9.30 am if you want to join us) and offer a safe space for community groups to meet.
We believe in our local community and feel a sense of privilege to offer continued service to our neighbours and friends. We trust that the amalgamated Church will add value to this aspiration and we look forward to building on the good relationships we have. As a Christian community we offer all this in the name our Lord Jesus Christ.
Best wishes Rev John Hardaker
