Welcome & Mission

Welcome: we’re glad you’ve found us.

We are a group of 9 Methodist churches, mostly located in the London Boroughs of Redbridge or Barking and Dagenham, and one in Chigwell.  We hope that this website will give you a taste of the diversity of the Circuit, and that you will take the opportunity of visiting us in the near future.

There is a team of four ordained ministers that have pastoral responsibility for these churches, and they work closely with a very able and committed group of lay people to provide leadership and support for the churches.

We follow the teachings of the Methodist Church and are part of its national structure. The key principles of our practice are summed up in the statement, “Our Calling”

Our Calling

The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission!

 It does this through:

Worship

The Church exists to increase awareness of God’s presence, and to celebrate God’s love     

Learning and Caring

The Church exists to help people to grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care 

Service

The Church exists to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice

Evangelism 

The Church exists to make more followers of Jesus Christ 

If that sounds like your idea of Church, we’d love to hear from you. Please use the Contact Us link to get in touch.
