Welcome to our church

Methodism was born in joyous song and it is that joy in Christ which we share with friends and visitors.  At the conclusion of  morning services (10:30), visitors especially are most warmly invited to join us in our church hall (the Wesley Hall) for tea/coffee and who knows, some biscuits.  See notices for the latest notices detailing weekly variations.

Where are we

Our church is opposite Holy Trinity Church (    From any of the theatres in Stratford, continue down Waterside, away from the town centre.  This runs into Southern lane, at the end of which you need to turn left. Carry on until you reach the second entrance to Holy Trinity and the Methodist Church is opposite this.To locate the church try using this street map or google mapPlease be aware that these maps are postcode based (CV37 6BG) and point to the general area.  Places with the same postcode include Hall's Croft and Holy Trinty church.

Aims of website

The aim of this website is to give a upbeat and accurate view of our church to visit and to allow regular attenders to see what is going on. Feed back on whether this is being achieved would be most welcome.

If you find the prospect of coming to church a bit daunting go to the Visitors page as a starting point

Our church registered for the Eco-congregation programme in 2003 and since then has been given 3 Eco-congregation awards. Through the redevelopment our premises have become energy-efficient and more sustainable.

Redevelopment Scheme

Our scheme was approved by the Trustees for Methodist Church Purpose in  February 2010 and planning permission have been granted by the Stratford upon Avon District Council in July 2010.  The scheme is  completed but there are still some outstanding costs so fund raising continues as follows:
