Our Connections

To Methodism

Barking, Dagenham, Ilford Circuit

The Methodist Church in Britain is a nationwide church, organised into groups of churches known as Circuits. Although these are often in close geographical areas, we do not, in fact, have formal Circuit boundaries, and our members may come from anywhere within travelling distance. However, many Circuits, for the sake of administrative convenience, are organised in such a way as to be, as far as possible, contiguous with local authority boundaries. Barkingside Methodist Church is part of the Barking, Dagenham and Ilford Circuit. Currently we have 8 churches and 1 community centre. 

Methodist Circuits are also grouped into Districts, and this Circuit comes under the London District (headquarters in Westminster). Ministers, both Presbyters and Deacons (which are equal though different forms of our ordained ministry), are stationed in Circuits by our national governing body, the annual Methodist Conference. 

To The Community


North Ilford Fellowship of Churches

We are members of NIFOC and have close links with 13 other churches in our local area with whom we share services and events on a regular basis, celebrating and witnessing our faith, and embracing our differences.


Redbridge Faith Forum

Redbridge Faith Forum

 We are also members of the RFF, which offers us the opportunity to meet with our neighbours of other faiths (and none) in regular meetings, where we can learn from, understand and respect our neighbours from the many different faiths represented throughout Redbridge and beyond.



Religious Education Resources Project 

We, along with other churches in the Circuit and the Methodist Church, London District, support the work of the RERP. It supports the growing requests from schools for assistance with Christian Religious Education. The Project has successfully worked with 29 primary schools in Redbridge to provide lessons, assemblies, Godly Play, Church visits, and other activities.  Contact


Christian Aid

We support this national charity with fund raisers-both at our church, in the Circuit and in the local area.
