There have been queries about accessing the On-line Services.
The ones we upload ourselves are available here on our website page and on our own channel from a set-time premiere (usually 10.45 on Sunday.) They remain on our channel for access at any time, forever.
Once a month the Sunday service at 3pm comes from the Mission and can be viewed live here on our Worship at Home page, or on the Mission website. Afterwards, they appear on our YouTube channel.
If you need any help accessing the services, contact the Web Editor who will try to help

The Mission is Open and Serving. Thank you so much for your continued support. The best way to help at the moment is to give money and
let the Mission buy what it needs but doors are now open for donations.
Food is the highest priority for those sleeping on our streets. Fresh
clothing, medical attention and support must be sustained.
The Mission serves up to 600 breakfasts daily (free of charge)
Harvest Gifts from churches were most welcome and are keeping us going until Christmas!
The Chapel and Museum is now open for visits Tuesday to Saturday from 11.00-1500. The Georgian Town House is now open to visitors in very small groups, when staff are available. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment. New exhibition opened on 19th October. Following on from Black Lives Matter and Leadership on a journey, the current exhibition reviews immigration, the Church, and the experiences of a number of immigrant office holders:
An exhibition celebrating the rich diversity that exists within the Methodist Church, through an exploration into the lives of Black, Asian and global diaspora leaders within Methodism and a history of migration.

Over the past few months, interviews have taken place in Wesley’s Chapel and across Britain, in Churches, chapels, living rooms and kitchens. Current leaders in the Methodist Church such as the Methodist Conference President, the Revd Sonia Hicks, and Youth President Daud Irfan’s testimonies have been featured. Long serving circuit stewards and activists Norman Mullings and Bala Gnanapragasam’s experiences of this country were shared alongside the views of academics, Dr Margaret Byron and Professor Anthony Reddie, who have helped to shape some of the historical and theological elements of this exhibition. The migration stories and experiences of Rev. Inderjit Bhogal and Rev. Irfan John, alongside their own selfless work have thrown into relief the clear necessity for an exhibition such as this. All are welcome. The exhibition is now open at Wesley's Chapel and Leysian Mission and will run until 29th January 2022. Opening times: Tuesday to Saturday, 11am-3pm. Entry is free.
Spaces in Onsite Community
The Wesley’s Chapel and Leysian Community currently have rooms available to let, and are looking for new people to join the community. The cost of the rooms available varies and as part of the community we will also require people to volunteer time and commit to attending our monthly gathering. To find out more details and to request an application form please contact the office at Wesley’s Chapel and Leysian Mission (tel: 020 7253 2262)
