We are delighted to say that we have been working hard to enable a 30-40 minute time of worship to take place in the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings at 10.30am (beginning on 4 October 2020). A risk assessment following Government and Methodist Guidelines has been completed and agreed by the Church Council and the building has been prepared to enable people to worship safely. To enable social distancing, numbers are limited to 30 so please email or telephone Annette Brooke by Thursday lunchtime to reserve a place. For more details please read the Stewards' letter in its entirety, via the link below.
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 our Paul Mears Quiet Room, dedicated to 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 each morning from Monday to Saturday, with light lunches served on Thursdays. 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 daily 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.
