Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord Romans 8:39
Welcome to Marlborough Road Methodist Church
Christ’s welcome is for everyone.
Our Calling is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.
We are called to let our whole way of life respond to God’s call,
Letting life grow in each one of us every day,
Nurturing life in the Church,
Bringing life to the World.
This is the Methodist Way.
The Methodist Church claims and cherishes its place in the wider Christian Church. For general information about our beliefs, emphases and practices, please click here.
Being in the centre of a city brings its challenges and its opportunities. As a result, our mission and ministry are constantly changing. Although our worship is structured on the basis of traditional Methodist worship, each Sunday is different. We cherish our past, we exercise our faith in the realities of the present age and we have dreams for the future.
Who we are is as important to us as what we believe and what we do; we seek integrity as much as activity. We try to keep our faith honest and real. As well as a range of church activities, some of which take place in members’ homes or out and about in the neighbourhood, our premises are used by a variety of community groups catering for a wide range of people from the very young to the quite elderly.
Baptisms, weddings and funerals are conducted at this church by arrangement. These are open to anyone in the local region, whether you have had any previous association with the church or not. You can contact our minister for further information about how you can involve the church in these special moments in your lives.
We invite you to explore the pages of our site to get a taste of what goes on within the Marlborough Road community – and if you like what you see, contact us or come along to find out more.

Coronavirus Update (1st March 2022)
The church is open for Worship on Sundays at 10:30am. Following the removal of regulations in January 2022 the Church’s Covid-19 group met to decide how to respond.
- With regard to masks, the group wished to thank the congregation (and other church users) for continuing to wear masks even after it stopped being mandatory. The Group recognises the desire to worship without masks and this is now your own choice but we would ask you to be mindful of others who may be more vulnerable than yourself. So singing can now take place without a face covering.
- Seating spacing will remain at 1-1.25m although extra chairs can be deployed if necessary.
If you are interested in using our premises please see our Lettings page.
