9.30am — Morning Worship
Epping Methodist Church is a committed, caring church who value our fellowship
and the opportunity to gather for worship.
Through our midweek meetings and Saturday coffee mornings,
we seek to engage with our community.
Through our Sunday morning worship, we seek to engage with God.
Our vision is to see the two aspects of our church life grow and become entwined.
Epping Methodist Church was built in 1874. Prior to this, services had been held in a "tin tabernacle".
Our Victorian forefathers built the church with steep steps. We currently have a project in progress to provide ramped access and an accessible toilet in the church vestibule. These will greatly improve access to the Church building for the congregation and the wider community, and enable us to better comply with accessibility legislation.
The sanctuary was renovated and reordered in 2013. The pews and bare boards have been replaced with comfortable chairs and carpeting creating a warm and inviting space in which to pray and worship together.
Downstairs we have a large hall, a small hall, two toilets and a kitchen. We are in the process of updating the kitchen. Plans have been drawn up and providing we get the funding we hope to proceed with this shortly.
