Earlsdon Methodist Church is situated at the centre of Earlsdon, in Coventry, and offers a warm welcome to all, old or young, including the itinerant population of students who reside here while studying at local Universities and Colleges.
For full information about the Church, please visit it's website www.earlsdonmethodist.org.uk. There you'll find details of its locality, aspirations, and involvement with the people of Earlsdon.
The Church is part of Churches Together in Earlsdon and Chapelfields.
Earlsdon Methodist continues to celebrate its centenary. At the end of May a well-attended concert in the church featured the London based LEOA academic male voice choir supported by the Coventry Male Voice Choir and introduced the church's own newly formed Centenary Choir.
In early June they welcomed shoppers, residents and anyone passing by, to a free barbeque. Over 150 people shared food and good company while listening to music from steel bands in brilliant sunshine on the pavement outside the church on the corner of Albany Road.
Then in the middle of the month the success was repeated with a free tea party for Saturday shoppers. They were treated to strawberries and cream, fruit scones and plenty of Methodist tea.
A Flower Festival followed at the end of June where individuals and community groups were invited to exhibit art, crafts and flowers in celebration of all things floral.
The church opened up for the Heritage Open Days 9th /10th September, The Earlsdon Church Centenary Exhibition which was an integral part of our celebrations in May, was set up again. This was a great opportunity to open our church and meet people who don't normally come in. Booklets about all the places open in Coventry were available in Wellspring. This was a another chance to view all the memories Heather Mills had collected and displayed.
Our next Centenary Celebration event is a film night on Saturday 14th October at 7pm, with free entry and intended to include and invite members of the wider community. The films will be Buster Keaton's "Steamboat Bill Jr" & Charlie chaplin's "Payday". 1920s dress style is an optional invitation – with a prize for the best outfit!
