The website for the Methodist congregations and community projects in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in the East End.
The calling of the Methodist Church worldwide is to respond to the gospel of God's love, shown to the world in Jesus Christ, by living discipleship. Methodism offers a thoughtful and lively way of faith, rooted in a particular tradition but flowering in all kinds of different ways to enable people to encounter and live out the good news of Jesus.
The Methodist tradition in Britain has a quarter of a million followers and is part of a world-wide family of seventy million. From its origins in the eighteenth century as an evangelical movement led by John and Charles Wesley (priests of the Anglican Church), it has promoted a disciplined way of following Jesus, an emphasis on community and a concern for the wider world.
While the worship life of our congregations is important as the foundation of all that we do, we are not afraid of looking for new ways of being church in the inner city.
See Social Ministries for details of local Methodist initiatives, organisations and projects.
We look forward to meeting you
July 2016. Methodist Conference resolution:
The Methodist Conference believes that the British Isles are enriched by diversity and celebrates the contribution made by those who have come from other parts of the world.
The Christian tradition calls for respect, tolerance, love of neighbour and hospitality to the stranger. ... Believing that racism is a denial of the Gospel and that to stay silent when others are abused is to collude with those who seek to promote hatred and division, the Methodist Conference calls on the Methodist people to challenge racism and discrimination....
The Methodist Conference is the annual gathering of elected ministers and lay people that agrees policy for the Methodist Church in Britain.
