Part of the Southwark and Deptford Circuit of the Methodist Church, BCH is a welcoming family church with over 250 adult members and a around 50 children and young people.

What to expect:
We know that the 'first day' anywhere can be a challenging experience, but try not to worry as we are a warm welcoming place. Here's a quick summary of what you can expect at Bermondsey Central Hall:
Service starts at 11am and worship is made up of hymns led by the church choir, readings from the Bible, prayers and an address by the Minister or local preacher leading worship. On the first Sunday each month we celebrate Holy Communion and this and the third Sunday are normally all-age worship services. These are interactive and fun for children both big and small. On the remaining Sundays, at about 11:20 the children and teenagers leave for junior church. There is also a creche available on these days.
Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We accept people as they are. So whether it's a pair of jeans or a traditional outfit from back home, as long as your comfortable so are we.
