Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will find the help and information that you are looking for. We also hope to welcome you in person at our Church very soon. Whether you come for Sunday worship or private prayer, or drop in to the Coffee Lounge, Knit & Natter, ladies' Thursday Afternoon Group or children's Thirsty Thursday group, you will find a warm welcome and supportive friends.
We are open for worship every Sunday morning at 10.30am. Booking is no longer required, but we ask that everyone attending continues to wear a face covering (unless medically exempt).
Junior Church and Crèche sessions have now resumed and new members will be made very welcome, whatever their age.
We're pleased to be offering refreshments and fellowship in our Coffee Lounge after Sunday morning worship and also from 10am to midday on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Our Paul Mears Quiet Room is also available at the above times for prayer or quiet reflection. (One person or single household/group at a time please.)
We very much continue to be a worshipping and caring church community, even though we can't all yet meet in person. Please visit our Events page for details of services in our building and those available online.
As part of the worldwide Christian Church, to preach the Christian message, provide facilities for Christian worship, and to serve the needs of the Community
This has been our mission since a Methodist Church was first built on our site in Lower Blandford Road in 1890. By the end of the last century it was clear that our old building was not ideal for carrying out this mission in the 21st Century. The old building was demolished and our new building was opened in December 2003.
Within our building you will find our Sanctuary - our place of worship - and the Paul Mears Quiet Room which is dedicated to Rev Paul, the man who drove the vision of our modern building. This room is set aside for prayer, quiet contemplation and conversations in confidence. If you ever want someone to talk to, then please do let reception volunteers know.
Our Coffee Lounge is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 10am - midday. (We hope to return to daily opening soon.) Drop in to find a friendly welcoming atmosphere and the buzz of conversation. Towards the rear of the building we have meeting rooms, and a large hall upstairs. The activities which go on here include use by church groups and many local organisations. You will find more details about our church activities on the various sections of our website. As we are part of the local Poole Bay Methodist Circuit, you may also find their website of interest.
We hope you find something of interest to you and look forward to welcoming you to our Church community.
