The churches of the Bishop's Stortford Circuit (Bishop's Stortford Methodist Church & Stansted Free Church) will be joining HAEBEA in September 2023.

Unified Preaching Plan

Since December 2022 we have had a very successful unified preaching plan. We are grateful to the ministers and local preachers of both Bishop's Stortford Circuit and HAEBEA for adapting to this new arrangement.

Celebration Service

Saturday 9 September at 4pm there will be a Celebration Service at St Andrew's Methodist Church welcoming the churches of the Bishop's Stortford Circuit as they join HAEBEA. The Preacher will be Rev David Chapman, Chairman of the Methodist District. Refreshments will be served after the service. All are welcome.


Revd Gill Hulme (on Sabbatical)
While Gill is away please contact the Church Office who will direct your enquiry to the relevant person.

Sunday Worship – 10.00 am

  • Worship is our response to God and an outward sign of our common belief. We honour Him because He first loved us and we try to make all our life an act of worship, not just on Sundays.
  • Sunday Worship is the centre of all we do and the time when all ages come to worship, pray and learn together.
  • We use a range of visual stimuli to help us to focus on God and His love for us: banners, rainbow colours, flowers, candles and audio-visual elements.
  • Our worship is led by various Ministers and Local Preachers with Bible readings, songs, hymns and prayers.
  • A creche is available for under 3's
  • If you are unable to attend in person but wish to join us at our streamed worship, click here to go to our YouTube channel

Heart and Soul and Mind Songs of Praise

  • You are warmly invited to join us on the third Sunday of the month at 4.00 pm for this special service for all people but especially for people with dementia and disabilities and their carers.
  • Refreshments and fellowship continue after the service in our new completed 'Oasis'
