Our Mission

Barking Methodist Church belongs to the Barking, Dagenham and Ilford Methodist Circuit. We are all part of the Methodist Church of Great Britain.

Barking Methodist Church and Community Centre is devoted to the sharing of God’s Love and the Gospel message of Jesus Christ through worship and sharing of the community resources that we have to offer.

Our Mission is to create a community hub where a wide range of community groups can make use of the premises, Seven days a week.

The premises we offer are well maintained and the welcome that we offer is friendly and encouraging as we seek to support the groups that hire our premises.

As a Church we are pleased to welcome all from around the world who seek to worship Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour or who seek to know more about the Love of God.

About Us

Barking Methodist Church reopened in October 2013 as a major redevelopment that saw the front and rear of the Church building extended. The Church area itself was built in 1958 and opened on the 10th January 1959. The years have seen many changes not only to the building but also in the congregation. We are now a very diverse congregation with many different nationalities and different age groups.

In our Church as in all others, there is expressed the need of man and woman to look beyond themselves to something far greater, the God of Love and Beauty as revealed in Jesus Christ. Everyone is always made welcome and we hope to see you in our midst sometime soon.
