Holt United Reformed Church
Holt U.R.C.,the current chapel built in the 1880s, is situated in the middle of the village. Adjacent to it is the hall, a two storey building which was the original church and, until the 1950s, the school for the children of Nonconformist families. The hall is now the meeting place for a number of regular community activities--two U3A art groups, Tiny Tots, Sugar Craft Guild and our own Brownie pack. Amongst other church activities we hold a monthly free book swap (3rd Saturday morning) and a bi annual pudding and quiz night. The upper floor of the hall has been used for the last 30+ years by Tools for Self Reliance who refurbish used tools before they are dispatched to several African countries.
We hold weekly services in the church and have links with the Benefice churches of St.Katharine's (Holt), St.Mary’s (Broughton Gifford) and All Saints (Great Chalfield), sharing quarterly united services and meeting as Christians together.     We cooperate with the parish church over the management of the village school where we have foundation governorship.
Our worship is led by ministers of the area, retired ministers, lay preachers and occasionally the Elders take that responsibility.  We always welcome newcomers and visitors into our church and have been blessed with several new members and adherents in the most recent years; we continue to actively seek to increase our membership.   A regular Bible study fellowship group meets weekly, to which anyone who feels called to join is made welcome.

ANY OLD TOOLS?

Did you know that there is a refurbishing workshop at the Holt United Reformed Church?

We are part of the small national charity, Tools For Self Reliance. All sorts of hand tools are refurbished to go into dedicated tool kits that go to projects in Africa. Such kits are for  Carpentry, Bicycle Repair, Auto Mechanics, Shoe Repair, Electricians etc. We also refurbish Singer sewing machines and collect haberdashery items. We don’t ask for gardening tools but if any turn up, we try and sell them for funds. Any other tools donated will be gratefully received.

The workshop is open on a Wednesday morning, 9 ‘till 12-30.
