About us

Text Box:  

RUGBY METHODIST CHURCH CENTRE was formed in 1984 from the amalgamation of three previous Methodist churches – in Market Place, Railway Terrace and New Bilton. Shortly afterwards Cambridge Street Methodist Church also joined.

 

Market Place was a Victorian building dating from 1868 and had an entrance where there is currently a greengrocer’s shop next to the Clock Tower. The church was sold and demolished in 1981. Market Place itself was a replacement for an early 19th century Wesleyan Church in Chapel Street (hence the name!). This too has now been demolished.

 

Railway Terrace Methodist Church joined the Market Place “society” in 1964 in anticipation of the new church which took a further 20 years to come to fruition. The Railway Terrace building is still in use as a church by Rugby Evangelical Free Church.

 

New Bilton Methodist Church was built in the early years of the 20th century as a mission church. It stood on high ground at the junction of Lawford Road and Victoria Street. The building was used for some activities after Market Place had been demolished, and was subsequently sold and used for housing developments.

 

Cambridge Street Methodist Church is also still used as a church by Rugby Christian Fellowship.

 

Rugby Methodist Church Centre, generally known as RMCC, was built on a new site which became available when Russelsheim Way and the gyratory system were built. The premises include a worship area seating 250 people, an adjoining lounge which can be used for overflow, a large hall and two smaller classrooms together with the usual facilities. The entire premises are on one level and the design was disabled-friendly from the outset. As the building was completely new, facilities such as a hearing loop and double glazing were all incorporated. We have recently added modern audio-visual facilities to enhance our worship.

 

RMCC still has some people who came from the constituent churches, but the congregation and membership is largely more recent than that. We hope you will want to come and join us and extend a warm welcome to all visitors.
