Sunday Worship at 9.30 am

Please wear a face covering when moving around the building or singing (unless you are exempt) and observe the social distancing and hygiene measures that have been introduced to keep everyone safe. Do not come to church if you are unwell or exhibiting any coronavirus symptoms

  • Sunday services are held at 9.30 each week.
  • Holy Communion is celebrated monthly.
  • We enjoy a fairly free and informal approach to worship, but we aim to offer worship that is dignified and which is characterised by a sense of joy and thankfulness.
  • Sometimes, the Minister of our Church or another Minister from our group of churches will lead worship. At other times, a Lay Preacher or Accredited Worship Leader will be the leader. Other members of the congregation take part in various ways and all are encouraged to use their gifts for the glory of God..

We are a welcoming church and invite you to get in touch.

Monthly Coffee Morning

We have started our Coffee Mornings again in the Church Hall on the first Saturday of the month 10.00 am — Midday. On our first Saturday the heavens opened and it poured with rain all morning! We had eight very brave and wet customers, all old friends of our coffee mornings. It was lovely to see them again after 18 months and catch up with all their news. Please pop in for a coffee (or tea!) — we would love to see you.

Our Mission Statement

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.

Church History and Buildings

Epping Methodist Church was built in 1874. Prior to this, services had been held in a "tin tabernacle".

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.

In 2019, access to the Church was greatly improved through the reordering of the front steps to provide a much needed ramp.

Downstairs we have a large hall, a small hall, two toilets and a kitchen.

About the Methodist Church

The Methodist Church is one of the largest Christian churches serving Great Britain, with nearly 230,000 members and regular contact with over 512,000 people. It has 5,023 churches in Great Britain, and also maintains links with other Methodist churches with a worldwide total membership of over 80 million. Its activities, both alone and with ecumenical and secular partners, are based on four aims known as Our Calling:

  • To increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love
  • To help people to grow and learn as Christians through mutual support and care
  • To be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice
  • To make more followers of Jesus Christ.
