The Churches

Our Mission

The Methodist Church Circuit of Barking, Dagenham and Ilford has ten Churches.

Our Mission is to proclaim the Gospel of Christ through our words and deeds, to meet the needs of our local communities, and to offer places of sanctuary and peace where the questions of life in the busy world in which we live can be answered.

We have four full time Ministers and one Supernumerary Minister. We employ a part time Administrator and also a part time Religious Educational worker who can be contacted via e-mail on

If you would like to contact our Circuit Office for more information, please call on 0208 517 6159 or email us on

In the Barking, Dagenham & Ilford Methodist Circuit, through the hiring out of our premises, we aim to help create a sense of community in the neighbourhoods where people live and work. We hope that an increased sense of community will lead to more personal involvement and more cultural, educational and social activities, which will create a better community and a better place for us to live: Communities where the presence of God can more clearly be seen.

Our committees focus on certain organisational areas within Barking Dagenham and Ilford Methodist Churches. Find out more about the areas in which the committees are active. Maybe you would like to get involved in one of them!
