Prayer of the day

  • Friday, 26 May 2017
    Create within us, O God, a love for your holy word. Teach us its true and inner meaning. Within its sacred pages may we find new strength and joy; by its precepts guidance for the soul, and through familiar words grace to help in time of need; for your truth and your name's sake. Amen. Walter James (1879-1908) God who is found in beauty and brokenness, holy and gracious one, whose heart is torn by the suffering of your children, you long for a world of justice and plenty for all. Liberate us to share in that freedom offered by your kingdom. Open our eyes to sense your presence in places of despair and fear, open our ears to hear your call to be salt and light in the world, melt our hearts, convert us to the needs of the other, and move us to be your people, a people of justice and care, for our world, for friend and stranger. Amen. Andrew Wood, Southampton District Chair

Anerley Methodist ChurchAnerley is one of nine Churches that make up the Blackheath and Crystal Palace Circuit of the Methodist Church.  We are a small but thriving Congregation that works hard to meet the needs of our local Community.

Our premises are well maintained and adaptable and we hope that you will find our friendly welcome as warm and welcoming as the premises themselves.

The Church has around 50 members and in addition to our regular Sunday Services we run or provide facilities for a wide range of different activities.  These include, other Faith Groups, Bible Studies, The Penge Community Pre-School, Dance and Drama Groups for young people, A Social Group for the older members of the Church, Dog Training and Keep Fit. Our Halls are also available to hire at competitive prices for parties, clubs, associations and community activities.

Children and families are always welcome at Anerley and we have a Junior Church for the young people.  However, on the fourth Sunday of the month we have a special family service when children, their parents and carers are particularly welcome to a family orientated and relaxed style of ‘All Age Worship’..

Baptisms, Weddings and, Funerals can be arranged with our Minister.

A full list of our weekly activities can be found on this website together with contact details for church officers and the leaders of groups who meet on the premises.
