The Eldership is a vital element within the United Reformed Church and we are grateful for the commitment and dedication of those who exercise this particular ministry within the church.

Here you'll find publications and documents that can help to explain our understanding of Eldership as well as practical resources that may assist elders in their responsibilities.
