Recent Events at Northumberland Avenue:-

"OPEN CHURCH" - 10:00am - 4:00pm on Saturday 11th May.

Open Church 

The event was well-publicised locally with 300 leaflets being distributed beforehand. Free refreshments were served all day, and there was a Photographic Exhibition from "Trudi Hudson Photography".  Open Church gave people on the Mildenhall Road and Howard Estates the chance to meet our Minister, Rev Debbie Borda, to take a look inside our chapel and premises, discuss hire of our church hall, kitchen and facilities, ask about our Sunday Services & Women's Fellowship ... or simply pop in for a cuppa!   


Due to the rainy weather we did not have the turnout we had hoped for. However, kind donations from those who attended raised £50 for church funds.

The Sanctuary

Circuit Service - 4:00pm, Sunday 17th February 2018

Our recent Circuit Service resulted in people from our sister churches coming and hearing about the valuable pastoral work undertaken by Francis Carr, Chaplain at our local Methodist Home, The Martins, as well as a little history and information about the Methodist Homes organisation.  A collection was made for the work of Mission in Britain, and a Faith Tea took place afterwards.
