 At the end of January 2023, the five churches in the Luton & Dunstable Cluster, Bury Park URC, Edward Street URC, St Katherine of Genoa URC, St Ninians URC, and Wigmore Church (URC/Methodist), voted overwhelmingly to amalgamate into one church with two buildings, one in Dunstable and one in Luton.  The new church was inaugurated on Sunday 30th July and is called Newland Church.  We are very pleased that Newland Church will continue the partnership with the Methodist Circuit.

The two sites are in Katherine Drive, Dunstable LU5 4NT and Crawley Green Road, Luton LU2 9TE, formerly St Katherine of Genoa and Wigmore respectively.  There will be worship at both sites on the first three Sundays of the month and a united service at one of the sites on the fourth and fifth Sundays of the month.  A Worship calender can be found on the Church Worship page.  Worship will be at 10.45 am unless otherwise indicated.

The amalgamation is a new begining and a new opportunity as the five churches share resources and look to building new relationships.  The two buildings will be adapted as necessary to create two sustainable, accessible and functional spaces for church and community to explore spirituality and also be community spaces hosting and encouraging local organisations.
