Welcome to the website of Loughton Methodist Church (LMC).
We are a lively and engaged church in the middle of Loughton. We hope that from these pages that you will discover some of our passions and what makes us ‘tick’
But if you are looking for a “perfect church” then you have got the wrong website. We frequently get things wrong. Our humanity brings both joys and challenges but we try to be honest with each other, often laugh, and have a great deal of fun.
We have a passion for Jesus and his relevance for our lives and the world. Above all we want to love God and love our neighbour. One of the tests is whether our faith supports the causes of justice and peace. Our current long term project is working in partnership with the Dalits of India.
Our closeness to the beautiful Epping Forest influences us greatly. The worship area has soaring wooden beams and wood is used extensively throughout the building. For many of us, closeness to creation is a source of great joy. That is why imagery of green and living things is used as the backdrop throughout this website.
If you want to know more do browse these pages. We are ordinary people who are being changed by Jesus and finding in him a wonderful quality to life. And if you want to join in then you would be welcome.
A welcome from our minister, Rev. Oseias Da Silva
