Our Mission Statement 

We believe we are called by God to witness to the truth of the Gospel.
We do this:
●    By maintaining our chapel as a centre of study in which the word of God is proclaimed and as a centre of prayer and fellowship open to all.
●    By working in the community by visiting and promoting community activities thus demonstrating the love of God in Christ for all.
●     By demonstrating in our daily lives that the way of Jesus is a more excellent way.
●    By offering friendship and fellowship to all, including other Christians, and becoming involved in ecumenical events and projects.

Bible Month 2019 will be held during May rather than June this year throughout the Tendring Circuit so as not to clash with Pentecost Sunday and the Sunday of Conference, when Rev Chris Preece is due to be ordained on 30 June in Birmingham. This year’s study is the Letter of Paul to the Colossians.


This year’s Easter Offering has the theme ‘Longer Tables, Lower Walls’ and is inspired by the words, ‘When you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence’. Originally used as a way of raising money to support Methodist Women Missionaries, today it is the World Mission Fund that receives our money and prayers. In 2018 the Easter Offering raised over £355,000.


Off The Fence is a Christian Charity working with those who are sleeping rough on the streets in Brighton and Hove. Their Antifreeze team meet some of the basic needs of those people living rough. In their latest newsletter one worker writes, ‘We take for granted the importance of basic needs like toilet rolls, toothbrushes, toothpaste, sanitary towels, deodorant etc., Can you imagine life without these items?’ Details of Off The Fence from either Margaret or Alec.


Did you miss it? The 350th anniversary of the birth of Susanna Wesley, mother of John and Charles Wesley, occurred on Sunday 20th January. Susanna, ‘the Mother of Methodism’, deserves recognition in her own right as a writer, theologian, and teacher.
