The Madding Crowd

One of the Madding Crowd concerts is a historical musically enactment of the lives of John and Charles Wesley, founders of the Methodist movement. The band has a very good Serpent player.

The Madding Crowd researches and performs the church and secular music of the English village bands and choirs in the period 1660 to 1861.

Churches Together

We are part of the Group of Churches Together in Hedge End, West End and Botley.

The Churches in West End, Hedge End and Botley are connected together for the good of our community. This website is here to help you find a local church to belong to, get more involved with the church’s activities within your community or to contact someone who can offer prayer, spiritual support or advice.

Street Pastors

Street Pastors is about Christians rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in practically responding to the problems of crime and safety. They are like beacons on our streets and I want to see them shining brightly in every constituency

We are an active church (in Chandlers Ford) that seeks to discover God at work in our lives and in the lives of others. Through worship, learning, caring, service and in sharing the love of Jesus, we look to become His disciples. We are active as Christians in the local community and many groups find a home in our wonderful modern premises.

We are a growing church (in Shirley) with a heart for welcome. We believe that the Bible challenges us to ‘love God’ and ‘love people’, and we are constantly learning what it means to do this in our local and wider communities.

We are indebted to those who run the SJR Youtube channel when we closed the doors to Hedge End Methodist Chapel in 2020. For a while they were inventing new ground, and kept us going until we re-found our feet.

Romsey Methodist Church is a group of people eager to spread the Good News about Jesus Christ. Jesus showed us how we should try to live our lives, and by dying and being raised to life for all of us he has made it possible for us to experience eternal life with the one true God.

The Small Church with the Big Welcome.

May they be blessed! Building: as cold as ice, organisation: chaotic but fun, hearts: warm and genuinely sincere. Alas now closed down: there was a building, there was a roof, but neither was connected to the other 😦
