About us

Stockton Road URC can trace its roots back to the early part of the 18th century and what was known as the “Corn Market Chapel” near High Street East.

The current building, formerly St George’s, was dedicated in 1890. Constructed in red Dumfries sandstone, the building is based on the Crescent Church in Belfast, which it closely resembles. Inside, many of the original features remain, including a high quality stone-carved pulpit and fine stained glass windows.  Its pierced lantern tower is a well-known local landmark.

Stockton Road is an amalgamation of several congregations over the years, the most recent being the combining of St. George’s with West Park URC in 2007. 


We would be delighted for you to worship with us and warmly invite you to join us for refreshments in the Lower Hall after the service.

Our main weekly service is on Sunday mornings at 10.45 a.m.

On the second Sunday of the month, our service is at 9.30 a.m.

On the fifth Sunday of the month we join with our friends from the Partnership churches for a joint service. For details, see this month’s list below.

Children are welcome at our services, usually joining in worship with the rest of the congregation at the beginning before leaving to do related activities in a meeting room.




All services start at 10.45 am unless otherwise stated.
