Our story

The church was built in 1880 by Sydney Hill, a local business man and benefactor, as a memorial to his wife and both are interred in a mausoleum along the front of the building. Sidney Hill was a local benefactor and a staunch Methodist. Besides building the Methodist Church he also built the Sidney Hill Homes in Churchill and the Jubilee Homes in Langford. The church interior is traditional and celebrates many aspects of Scripture, particularly in the several ornate stained glass windows. The building is grade 2 listed.

It boasts its own large car park area, making it suitable to larger congregational meetings. Access may be made via a ramp at the car park side or through the front porch. There is a unisex disabled toilet. 

Some years ago, the once choir vestry, was redecorated and renamed The Oasis, a quiet room for prayer, small church meetings and study nights for Advent or Lent courses etc. 

Adjoining the church is a large hall, once the Schoolroom for local children, and which now is an invaluable facility for the many church functions and community events that use it. 

One most appreciated in the locality is the Thursday Lunches also served from the well equipped adjoining kitchen, by church members and friends, to 25 or more senior citizens. 

The Churchill Girl Guides troop meets regularly as do Rainbows. 

Monday mornings, in term time, there is a Baby & Toddler Group using the hall and kitchen. The hall is also for hire for parties and community meetings.
