Henley in Arden Methodist Church
We are a congregation of about 10 people who all live in or about Henley in Arden. Our Mission is shaped by a number of close relationships with groups in the town. We have strong ecumenical links with other Christian congregations. As Churches Together we share worship often, meet monthly for prayer and join in various acts of service to the community.
The town Library is based in our church hall--an arrangement which is of benefit to both parties. Currently the Library, in partnership with the churches, is looking at starting a monthly Dementia Café. To enable such gatherings to take place. the inside of our church was recently refurbished (the pews were replaced by chairs and the sloping floor levelled). We have just submitted our application for a silver Eco Church award.
