We are saddened to report that two of our Methodist Churches will be closing this year.

  • Epping Methodist Church will close in July.
  • North Weald Methodist Church will close in October.

Following these closures, the trusteeship of these premises shall fall to the Hertfordshire and Essex Border Ecumenical Area. There are no plans to sell the properties at present.

Services of Thanksgiving

  • A Service of Thanksgiving for the life and witness of Epping Methodist Church will be held on Sunday 31 July, 2.30pm followed by refreshments. This will also be Revd Cecil's last Sunday in HAEBEA before he leaves to take up a new role in Lincolnshire.
  • A Service of Thanksgiving for the life and witness of North Weald Methodist Church will be held on Sunday 23 October, 2.30pm followed by refreshments.

Please Pray

In our prayers, please hold before God the Methodist congregations of North Weald and Epping as they face these days of transition. Through the pain of closing may they be lifted from darkness and distress into God's light and peace. Let us pray that individuals find new spiritual homes so that they may continue in the fellowship of the church.
