Welcome to Lidgett Park Methodist Church. We are a friendly community, always ready to welcome visitors and new members to our Sunday services and to any of our wide range of weekday activities. There is something for all ages, and we serve our local community by making our premises available to a number of outside organisations: the premises are busily used every day.

We are committed to expressing our faith in practical ways, and therefore hold many social events that raise many thousands of pounds a year for charitable work in this country and abroad.

We also house the Circuit Office and a substantial preachers' library that is available for anyone to use.

The first buildings (the current hall and vestry) were built in 1910, when the surrounding area was mainly farmland about to be developed into a housing estate. The chapel was opened in 1926. It is a fine building, furnished in polished oak, with something of an ‘Arts and Crafts’ character.

Our Church Mission Statement

To provide for our church family a basis for spiritual growth, mutual care and support, outreach of faith and witness and seek to raise their awareness of concerns in the wider church.

Ways Forward

  1. Provide through corporate worship and related activities for spiritual growth and the deepening of faith in God through Christ.
  2. Express Christian love through mutual care and support and provide for fellowship for members and for others within the community.
  3. Provide outreach of faith and witness within and beyond the local community and to extend the church family.
  4. Raise the awareness of the church family of concerns experienced by our fellow Christians and others, in other countries, in this city and the neighbourhood.

Social Events

Frequent social events are organised which are entertaining and community-building, and that raise more than £10,000 per year for the annual charity project. In the past ten years the church has raised more than £100k for charitable purposes in Britain and overseas. In 2017-2018 we are focusing on making our main entrance on Lidgett Place more accessible and welcoming to people who come in that way, e.g. for weddings and funerals. Included in this work will be the addition of fully accessible toilets.
