Churches & projects serving London's East End

Methodist congregations and community projects

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 practise 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.

 Here in the Tower Hamlets Methodist Circuit, we are people who are looking for a way to express our Christianity in the Methodist tradition, often through living our faith by helping people. We have regular services for worship and opportunities for bible study, prayer and meeting together.

Our work as a Circuit includes helping the homeless and rootless at Whitechapel Mission; providing a supportive environment for older people, and for those caring for someone at home to enjoy a more fulfilled life, through the Zacchaeus Project. Band for Life gives opportunities for people to express themselves in music and song.

See Social Ministries for details of local Methodist initiatives, organisations and projects.  
Ongoing plans for redevelopment at Bethnal Green can be seen here

You would be very welcome to join us at any of our events or meetings, and there are plenty of opportunities for you to take part in our project activities.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to find out more, or to get involved in any way.

 As members of the Methodist Church in Tower Hamlets we are on a journey of faith; offering a welcome to all as we serve our neighbours and the wider world in the name of Jesus
