Our Mission

We are called to be God's people, transformed by the Gospel, making a difference to the world


Welcome to the website of the Dursley Tabernacle United Reformed Church.

We are a welcoming church community centrally based in the Cotswold town of Dursley, Gloucestershire.

We have about 140 church members of all ages with active children and young people’s groups. We seek to be inclusive and diverse and to make a difference to our community in the name of Jesus Christ. The church plays a significant role in the local community running and hosting various community activities.

Have a look in our website and find out how we are fulfilling that mission.

Even better, come and visit us and see if you’d like to be part of our community!

Alpha – Bear Grylls Story

Tab Alpha Course

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view – wherever they are in the world.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith and it runs all around the globe and everyone is welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes – you name it.  No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Talks: The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around thirty minutes long, they can be given as a live talk or played as a video. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Discussion: Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

On Mondays, 7.30pm in The Vibe, starting Oct 9th
