Both Churches Caversham Heights Gosbrook Road
Follow us on Facebook
Both our churches offer full disabled access (ramps) and disabled toilets. At Caversham Heights the ramp is accessed most conveniently from the car park to the north of the  building, entrance directly off Woodcote Road. At Gosbrook Road disabled access is easiest from the car park to the left of the church building on Ardler Road. We are two Methodist Churches serving distinct communities in Caversham, but working together, with other churches, to serve a common purpose: proclaiming in word, worship and action the love of God for everyone. People bonded in Jesus, in partnership with others, striving to make a difference in our communities.
You’re very welcome. Why not come on in and find out more?
A thought from the Readings for next Sunday, 26 August  Epistle Eph 6:10-20  Paul’s letters are full of ‘purple passages’ like this one. Here he uses the metaphor of military armour, both protective and offensive. The enemy, however, is clearly the array of influences that draw us away from our devotion to Christ. Paul uses typically extravagant metaphysical language about ‘The cosmic powers of this present darkness’ to describe these influences. His own metaphor of armour provides food for thought and prayer, not only about how to be a Christian, but about the nature of the influences ranged against us.  There is a depressing cascade of articles in newspapers, in which religion is castigated as an evil force in our society. Such articles may tempt us to keep our heads down and our voices silent rather than identifying ourselves publicly as Christians. But look again at those articles and ask: how much of what they say is (sadly) only too true. There are significant and influential bodies of sexist and homophobic opinion within the church. There is some downright obscurantist argumentation, which really turns people off.  The church quite rightly reflects on the extent to which it should be counter-cultural, but often seems to miss the mark by picking on an easy target: we can best differentiate ourselves by continuing to assert this or that bit of traditional Christian teaching – and usually it’s a bit of strict social or ethical teaching. It is often easy to depict the church as simply being against this or that. And in the resulting controversy we can smugly claim to be persecuted because we resist other ways of doing things.
