Mission

Our Mission Statement is simply:

With God's help, the aim of the Methodist Church in Flitwick is that through our words and through our actions we invite our community and all people to meet with the living Christ

 

 

History

There has been a Methodist place of worship on the site in Chapel Road since 1873. In 1897 the chapel was extended by the addition of a schoolroom, a vestry and a coach-house and stable for the visiting preacherīs horse trap!

The next major work on the buildings took place in 1978 turning the worship area round and adding a second story, replacing the single schoolroom with a small suite of rooms upstairs and downstairs at the rear.

The most recent work, completed in 2000 , added a sanctuary area to the front of the building, two large rooms at the rear , a much improved kitchen and modern toilets including a dedicated toilet for the disabled. Access, both front and rear, is now suitable for wheelchairs. The church is away from the town centre and is surrounded by housing of various ages and types.

The congregation is drawn from the local area, from across the town and from surrounding villages. There are close and valued links with nearby Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches.

The population of Flitwick was 842 in 1871. Now, it is a busy but small commuter town with over 13,000 inhabitants.

In addition to being a centre for worship, the premises are regularly used by many local voluntary groups and organisations including Girl's Brigade, Boys' Brigade and other youth groups, and the award winning Flitwick Singers. It is used for many regular meetings of church groups for all ages.
