The United Reformed Church History Society is open to anyone interested in the history of the denominations in the United Kingdom which came together in 1972, 1981 and in 2000.

In 1972 the Presbyterian Church of England and the Congregational Church in England and Wales joined to form the United Reformed Church. In 1981 the Re-formed Association of Churches of Christ in Great Britain also joined, followed in 2000 by the Congregational Union of Scotland.
