Admin HistorySt Andrew's-with-Castle Gate United Reformed Church was established in April 1975 by the union of St Andrew's URC (formerly Presbyterian, see AU) and Castle Gate URC (formerly Congregational, see CU). The united congregation was based in the existing St Andrew's church buildings on Goldsmith Street, Nottingham.
Custodial HistoryThe records came to the University Library from the Trustees; a number of accruals have been added between 1986 and 2017.
DescriptionMost of the material in the collection is printed. It includes annual reports (1976-2015), a near complete run of church newsletters (1975-2004) and some service sheets, including induction services of various ministers. There are photographs, a 35mm film of the first General Assembly and Thanksgiving service, a video of the 20th anniversary celebrations in 1995, and recordings of various services on cassette tapes.

Administrative documents consist of lists of members (1978-2003), minutes of church meetings (1979, 1991-2012), and meeting attendance books (1975-1992).

The collection also contains records of clubs and societies at St Andrew's-with-Castle Gate. The records of the Stanwell Players drama group are very rich, including programmes and photographs, and date from the group's formation at St Ann's Well Road Congregational Church in 1946 to its closure in 1991. There are also records of the Guide Scout Aid Committee (1966-1993) and the St Andrew's Senior Citizens Club (1979-2001).
