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 and St Bedes in 2001. 


Worship 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.  For details, see this month’s list below.
