Thankyou for being interested in us. We want to make you feel comfortable, even if you visit only once.
You are very welcome to any of our events and activities, regardless of your creed, beliefs, cultural background, colour, age, gender, or notions. You can come once, twice, intermitently or regularly, without obligation and without interrogation. We welcome, the curious, the interested, the lonely, those seeking God, those seeking entertainment, those seeking new friends, those seeking a safe place for children, those not seeking anything at all.
Whoever you are, and whatever your reasons, you are still very very welcome.
The building was built in 1924. If the church looks victorian gothic with a steeple, that’s the St John’s Anglican church. Walk down hill towards the centre of town about 100 yards. If the church is has a triangular roof with a big window in the centre front, that’s the Methodist Church.
Parking: There is limited parking in the front (St Johns Road) and rear (Granada Road) car parks. There is on street parking in both roads and in adjacent streets within a residential area.
The sign from M27 Junction 7 refers to “Hedge End Village” as distinct from the Hedge End retail park “Sainsburys etc”, where you can easily get lost.
Buses and Trains:Lots of buses stop in central Hedge End which is a three minute walk from the church. Hedge End Train Station is a long way from the town centre.
