Experience, enjoy, share and proclaim the transforming love of God


It's great to welcome you and introduce all that is happening in and around our church centre in the heart of Rugby.

There's always plenty going on at Rugby Methodist Centre and you are welcome to join us at our services or other activities:

Building Work

Building work is progressing well. Please use the back door (accessed from car park) for the duration of the work, and note that the car park is restricted in use. We recommend using on-street parking nearby or at ASDA, for your own safety and to help the builders.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
