We are a warm and caring community of all ages, in which people from across the spectrum of Christian experience and theological views are enabled to grow in their relationship with God and with each other. In addition to regular Sunday worship we explore and practice our faith in various other ways, and serve the people around us through our Community Centre, staffed by friendly volunteers

We are part of the Methodist Church of Great Britain, and of a group of local Methodist churches known as the Redhill and East Grinstead Circuit (part of the South-East District)
