Harwood Methodist Church

Bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to the people of Harwood


Harwood Methodist Church was formed by the merger of two successful, respected and well established Methodist churches; each with their own gifts, graces and history. Since September of 2009 we have spent a great deal of time praying, reflecting and listening to God about what it is that he is calling us to be as the church in this place.


Part of the response to that call is a significant redevelopment and reshaping of our physical buildings in Harwood.

completed work on Phase 1



What’s On


Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations

At the start of the New Year our own Harwood Ministers and Preachers will be leading a series of Sunday morning services based on these five practices. We shall be looking at

¨ Radical hospitality

¨ Passionate worship

¨ Intentional faith development

¨ Risk taking mission & service

¨ Extravagant generosity


Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations

Our faith is a seed that needs nourishment in order to grow and bear fruit; and the place that should happen is within the community of faith. The Methodist Church is encouraging all churches to take part in this practical series.
