Church Road is a growing church with an exciting vision for the future. It involves rationalising our site, developing new projects of outreach and service to the community so that we help people experience the transforming love of God, change lives and communities as we follow Christ. No matter how much we try to use social media, we would say you can't beat a face to face conversation so don't hesitate to ask for an appointment with Stephen, our Minister, if you would rather have a chat.
Our Minister, Rev Stephen Heath

NEWS OF OUR DEVELOPMENT
It is great to see good progress on the work as we look forward to completion at the end of February 2019. It is a joy to see the reclaimed stone being used on the entrance to the new centre and more will be incorporated with some of the old foundation stones in the new ramped entrance. The roof is on and is watertight. The focus is now on fitting out the new centre creating the function rooms and offices. There will be some disruption in the church when they knock through the new link into the centre. In recent weeks we have been grateful for the promise of funds from the Windmill Community Trust and the Lawrence Henry Clegg Charity to support the work of the café and to purchase equipment in the centre as we re-establish Wesley’s Community Café and related work.

Owing to the forthcoming building works and the need to ensure the safe storage of everything, Wesley’s is now temporarily closed. We thank you for your support and look forward to re-opening in the New Year. The Wesley’s team will continue to distribute food that is past its sell by date but not its used by date to various charities across the area. If you would like to help with this work please contact Stephen on 07711 911 955 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
