Beeston & Chilwell Methodists together

Update: Chilwell Road, Queens Road, Wollaton Road and Clarkes Lane have voted to be 1 church council from 1st September 2014

Chilwell Road is one of a group of 5 Methodist Churches in Beeston and Chilwell that are looking at ways to work closer together with a view to becoming 1 church. The other churches are Wollaton Road, Queens Road, Rylands and Clarkes Lane. We frequently hold joint services and come together for other events as well.
On June 8th, Pentecost Sunday, there was a United Service in Broadgate Park.

Reflecting our commitment to work together, we have developed a logo consisting of five fishes around a cross, one for each of our churches, “coming together as one to serve God in our community”. This logo has recently been tweaked so it will stand out more, particularly when printed. We have used this in a banner to summarise our vision:
