Hope Methodist Church

Sharing the love of God in the heart of the community

We are a growing church in a prime location in the heart of a suburban community.

We meet for Worship on Sundays at our New Longton Church.

Morning Services each Sunday at 10.45am
Evening service on 2nd Sunday of the month at 6.30pm.
The Sunday School also meets at 10.45 am.

You would be very welcome to join us at any of our events but especially for 
Worship on Sundays - visitors and new members are always welcome.

The children meet in the Church and leave early in the service to go into the hall for Sunday School.  However, we are very happy for children to remain in the Church for the whole of the service if they prefer.  Do not be afraid of them making a noise - it is not a problem.

We usually serve Fairtrade tea and coffee (and cake!) in the hall after the morning service
so please stay and have a chat.

Our modern premises are well used throughout the week. Some of the activities on offer are: 

Prayer Group & Prayer Chain, 
Art Group, Coffee Morning & Choir, 
Toddler Group, Youth Clubs & our yearly Holiday Bible Club,
House Groups & Bible Studies.
Dancing, WI, Singing Groups,
Brownies, Guides, Squirrels, Beavers & Cubs.

In fact - If we haven't got what you want, just tell us.

If you would like to enquire about using our premises either for a special event or for a regular booking please contact John North (click here)

We have a strong musical tradition and our choir, meets for Christmas, Easter and other special events.

The Church attracts members of all ages and from various backgrounds, some working in the City of Preston, others working in the rural areas which surround us, single parents, young families, retired people - in fact people just like you!

The New Longton Church seats around 100 and has a large modern hall and ancillary rooms. 
There is adequate car parking in the Church grounds.

We believe that God must be at the centre of all that we do.  Talking and listening to God in prayer is a vital part of the life of the Church and its members. 

We are constantly looking for new ways of taking the church out into the community
and to a world searching for answers.  If you would like to be involved in this
or you just want to see what we are about then please contact us or come along. 

Whoever you are and whatever your needs we would love to hear from you.  

New Longton has a Junior School, several shops, cricket and football fields, bowling green, village hall, children's play area, a children's nursery, a Doctors surgery and both sheltered accommodation and a retirement home.
