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.
Work on our redevelopment project will be starting shortly and there is now no access to the church centre. The site will be handed over to the developers and during the period of construction we will only have access to the church. Equipment not required until the autumn has been put into storage. Essential day to day items have been moved into the church itself. Every effort has been made to store these items as discreetly as possible and to minimise the impact on our worship, but please be understanding whilst the works are in progress. All our activities will now be meeting in the church space and general access will be through the main front doors.
Please note that Room Bookings are being organised by Bill & Monica Bissett 01253 728140.

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 September. 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 email@example.com.
