To know Christ, reflect His life and make Him known.
Our church is a community of people who are drawn together by God’s love as they know it, expressed in the story of Jesus – his birth and life, teaching, suffering, death and resurrection. We seek to follow the way of Jesus and live to share God’s love through action and word in the world. Because this experience of Jesus Christ has so shaped our lives, we invite others to share in the love, life and hope that is freely given to us.
The Methodist Church is a worldwide communion of over 80 million people which originated from the time of the Wesley brothers, John and Charles, in the mid-eighteenth century. John was ordained by the Church of England and he and his hymn writer brother Charles, were members of a group of young men who met daily to pray and study the Bible whilst at Oxford University. Nicknamed “the Holy Club”, they were so methodical in their lifestyle that they were called Methodists, a name which eventually became that of the religious movement which followed.
