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 March 2019. It is a joy to see the reclaimed stone being used on the entrance to the new centre and some of the old foundation stones incorporated in the new ramped entrance. The new centre is being fitted out creating the function rooms and offices. 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.
