All Are Welcome

Our purpose is to worship God, love each other, care for those in need, and to share the love of Jesus with those in the community around us and world wide.

No matter who you are or where you’re from, you are welcome here.

As a church which seeks to grow in Christian faith and outreach, we are outward-looking, inclusive and we challenge exclusion.

We believe that every person is an important member of God’s family. Connect with us this Sunday either in person or on YouTube.


Raleigh Road United Church (Methodist / URC) came into existence with the joining of Kew Road Methodist and St Paul’s United Reformed churches in 1995. We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.


Rev. Claudia Lupi

I am Italian and come from Rome, where I studied at the Waldensian University for my Master Degree in Protestant Theology. I was ordained a Methodist Minister here in the UK. I have lived in 15 cities, enjoy new experiences and meeting new people from different cultures.

I am open minded and believe everybody has to be welcomed in the church of Jesus Christ without barriers. I am called to work with people marginalized in our society, to support those in need within or outside the church. I believe a high priority in the church is summed up in Galatians 3:28:

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Whatever your colour, sexual orientation, age, or nationality, you are welcome in our congregations. We enjoy diversity and consider it a richness! We are a United Church and would love to have you with us. I will be very happy to meet you soon, and to share with you the blessings of God.
