Our Kids connecting club on a Wednesday evening reaches out to young people in our local area. Two sessions take place
for ages 6-11 and 11-14.
We are a growing and developing church, with various groups meeting regularly
on our premises which includes a Warrington Brass band (with both junior and senior sections ). During the week our premises
are also used by a private day nursery. Our history
We seek continually to be a church responding to the needs of the local
community. In the pipeline for development are the following activities:
Singing for Goodness - a time for social
interaction and coffee for the local community.
Film nights - family fun evenings of watching a film and eating
Caring for our Community - practical outreach in our community - painting, gardening and providing care.
Methodists were recorded in Latchford around two hundred
years ago. Their first meetings were held in a room over a Wheelwright's shop but because of growing numbers, worshippers
moved, first of all to an old barn ( which had been used as a Sunday school since 1872 ) and then in 1879 to a Temperance
Hall. Finally, after much fund raising and hard work our present Church was built and was opened on 10th October 1894 by the
President of the Conference, the Rev. Walford Green.
The Sunday school continued to meet in the Temperance hall
until 1907 when the Church hall was built, a primary wing was added in 1914 and the Church was enlarged in 1932 by the addition
of a beautiful Chancel.
Over the years all the uniformed organisations have been part of our Church family, we also
had a large church choir which won many trophies. Bible classes, guilds, missionary groups and a ladies' bright hours
have come and gone over the years as has a very large youth club in the 1960's.
