Welcome, and thank you for visiting First Reformed Presbyterian Church of Durham online. We are a congregation of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America and are committed to testifying to the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ in Durham and the greater Research Triangle area. We are a church committed to worshiping the Lord according to His word, giving of ourselves for the benefit of one another, and living lives of open repentance


We hope that our website will give you a feel for who we are and what we believe and will encourage you to join us in worshiping and serving our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heading 6


Currently we have suspended the celebration of the Lord's supper as we navigate a new temporary policy. The fellowship meal practice is "bring your own lunch" in order to curtail any spread of the virus. 

Worship Services

At this current time, we are practicing social distancing in the pews. We are a small congregation that allows this practice. There are masks available at the church for anyone who has a need for one. 


Services are held at 1316 Watts St., Durham, NC 27701. We are located northwest of downtown Durham, near the Duke East Campus and can be easily reached from I-85. Our building is handicap accessible.

Sunday Morning service is at 10:30 AM, followed by a bag lunch meal at 12:15 PM and Sunday School at 1:10 PM (currently we do not have a children's class).


Prayer meeting/bible study is held at 7 pm on Sundays and Wednesdays. Contact us for other studies.
