The Spire Church is a church created through a partnership between Farnham United Reformed Church and Farnham Methodist Church.
Both churches have worshipped in South Street since the 1870s and have enjoyed a very friendly relationship stretching back over many decades. We have frequently shared services and exchanged preachers, as well as having joint Sunday Schools and social activities in earlier years.
As a church, we seek to respond to the Gospel of God’s love in Christ, and live out our discipleship in worship and mission. We strive to welcome everyone, young and old, engaging with the community around us, through our coffee bar, groups for children, and for older people.
Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!

God of all,
with alarm and concern we bring before you
the military intervention in Ukraine.
In a world you made for peace and flourishing,
we lament the use of armed force.
We mourn every casualty of this conflict,
every precious life extinguished by war.
We pray comfort for those who grieve
and those who are fearful.
Hear our longing that leaders and nations will honour the worth of all people
by having the courage to resolve conflict through dialogue.
May all our human failings be transformed
by your wonderful grace and goodness.
We ask this in the name of Christ,
the author of peace and sustainer of Creation.
The Communion of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE) have issued a liturgy for peace including contributions from various church leaders in the region.
Almighty God, you know how little strength we have to stand up to the abuse of power, corruption and violence.
Strengthen us with your irresistible strength so that we do your will and make your light of truth shine here on earth. Free us from the hardships of war. May those who have lost their homes find new places to stay, give the hungry food, comfort those who weep, unite those who are separated.
Make us instruments of your peace and your righteousness, and equip us with all that is necessary to serve our fellow human beings. Do not allow your church to lose anyone out of anger towards their fellow humans and relatives; instead, like a generous God, give us reconciliation soon.
Above all, strengthen our faith, revive our hope and teach us to love.
Preserve us from the arbitrariness of the powerful of this world and lead them to recognise their limits.
Bless us with your peace so that we can work together, hand in hand, for a more free and just society, to your praise and glory.
Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am, roughly alternating between the URC and Methodist Church buildings. We also worship at 11.30am on Fridays with a 30-minute Pause for Thought service.
We have a variety of church groups that meet throughout the week. You are very welcome to join any of our groups.
