Potters Bar United Reformed Church

From our foundation as Potters Bar’s Congregational Church in 1934 Potters Bar United Reformed Church has developed over the years into a modern and comfortable church centre with many amenities.

Our worship and activities are adapting to embrace new technology and the pressures of living in the Britain of today.

We are a welcoming and caring community offering a structured but slightly informal style of worship, although we remain quite traditional.


St Giles, South Mymms

St Giles is a beautiful 12th century church. more modern additions include a Sir Ninian Comper Font cover and window. Worship is liberal Catholic with Sung Mass at 11.00am each Sunday and at 8pm on Feast days. St Giles has a number of interesting traditions, including a bread service on Christmas Eve and a brief service and sermon in the Black Horse Public House every year on Good Friday evening.

We are currently in Vacancy (no Vicar), as is the other church in our Benefice, St. Margaret’s Ridge. We are open for public worship (no streaming or zoom) at present, and have a team of regular priests who take our services, thankfully. St. Giles is also undergoing a major restoration programme to restore the north-east chapel, which has been damaged by subsidence: we expect this to be completed by the late Summer this year.

The Sunday services are at 10.30 a.m. offering a mixture of traditional and modern worship. Junior Johns, our Junior Church, also meets every Sunday.
