Description

New Central Methodist Church is right at the heart of the thriving seaside resort of Blackpool, and adjacent to the new Houndshill shopping centre. We have a reputation of providing a warm welcome for residents, shoppers and visitors alike. We regularly welcome back “old friends” who have visited us over many years of holidaying in the town. We are even on some people’s list of “must dos” whilst on holiday!

Our Church has won the North West Tourism Association’s Marque of Excellence and is described as “an outstanding example of a sacred site that exists to serve not only its own congregation but to reach out and welcome the whole community.”

As well as being open for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30am, the church is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. We have a welcoming and relaxed coffee lounge, which serves a range of drinks, sandwiches, cakes and other refreshments. Access to the church itself is always available. The history of the church, and its activities within the community, are presented via interpretation boards, and information leaflets are available. The church is also available for prayer and contemplation. On Thursdays at 12:15pm we have a short informal “shoppers’ service” in the coffee lounge.

Access to the Church is via Adelaide Street West’s shopping street (just outside the West entrance to the Houndshill Shopping Centre) and good access is available for those with mobility issues (lift, wide corridors, etc.) Parking is available in the Houndshill Centre and there are plenty of buses and trams passing close by – just head for the town centre and Houndshill’s west entrance and you’ll find us.

During the summer season we hold our Summer Spectacular show, suitable for all ages, and held on Tuesdays and Thursdays during June. During July and August we hold lively and interactive Summer Praise services on the street outside the church…

We look forward to welcoming you.
