How does anyone know when a journey begins? The original church was built and commissioned in 1934. Since then the people of God at Beech Hill have been on many journeys of faith understanding. Journeys that led into youth work with Girls and Boys Brigade and an overflowing Sunday School  

Along the way: they have hosted evacuated WWII children who met on the premises for their schooling; ran successful women’s groups, enabled The Befrienders and the Moms and Tots groups; felt uplifted by the wonderful singing of the Operatic group who used the premises, delighted audiences each Christmas with a home grown Concert and a young peoples Christian Pantomime. But more recent times brought the challenge of the community around the church changing; becoming multi-faith and multi-cultural.

Society no longer looked to the church to provide entertainment during the week. Rising aspirations and prices forced mothers out to work, whilst T.V. and video bought instant access to entertainment.

People died, moved away or just failed to recognise their need for a church life. The congregation dwindled.

Hence the beginning of another journey, an exploration of God’s will for Beech Hill.

The pictures below show the completed Beech Hill building.  It took almost two years from when we moved out of the old building to moving back into the new.  We actually moved in just in time to celebrate Christmas 2007. Our official opening service was in June 2008 when we were pleased to welcome Rev. Anne Brown, the Chair of the Methodist District, to lead our celebration worship.
