Hanwell Methodist Church
Composed, designed and published by Ray Garnett
Hanwell Methodist Church is one of nine
congregations that are grouped together
to form the Ealing Trinity Methodist Circuit.
Each church within the Circuit has a
minister in charge and also makes use of
Local Preachers who conduct the services
on a rotational basis. For a list of the other
Churches in our Circuit, please visit our
The list of Sunday services and calendar
of preachers for each of the churches
within the Circuit is published quarterly in our Circuit magazine In-touch. Copies are normally available from the shelves at the back of our Church.
Sunday services at Hanwell usually commence at 11:00am in the morning. However, there are a few exceptions to these times so please check our Service Plan page for further details. Sunday evening services usually only occur on the last Sunday in the month and incorporate Holy Communion. There are exceptions when we have special services such as our pre-Christmas Carols by Candlelight service or Circuit services.
Junior Church (Sunday School) is normally held each Sunday during school term time and runs alongside the morning service. As a general rule, the first Sunday of each month is usually a Family Service when members of the Junior Church join the adult congregation throughout worship. It often also incorporates a parade service for the uniformed organisations.

During our Holy Communion services,
everyone, whatever age, is welcome at our
Communion rail. Our Communion Stewards
will advise you when to proceed. If you
wish to receive a blessing and not partake of
Communion then keep your hands down
rather than raise them to receive the elements.
If you are unable to get to the Communion rail
but would like to receive, then let the
Communion Steward know and he/she will
advise the Minister to provide it where you
are sitting after others have been served.
Tea or Coffee?
We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after our morning services. If it's someone's birthday we may even get some cake! Please accept our invitation to come through into the hall behind the Church or into our Centenary Room to partake of refreshments. Anyone will show you the way if you do not know the layout of our premises.
On the first Sunday of each month after our usual Family Service, we usually also have a homemade cake stall. Now can you refuse?
Note: Please note that tea, coffee and other refreshments are not currently being served after our Sunday services because of the Corvid virus restrictions.
For those with a physical disability or sensory impairment, we have certain aids that might be of help. Our stewards will be very pleased to assist you with:
Induction loop facilities for those with impaired hearing. You will need to sit in the central block of pews with your hearing aid turned to 'T'.
Large print hymn books and service books.
Braille hymn books.
Toilets for those who are disabled, are at both the front and rear of the premises. Toilets at the front of the Church also have nappy changing facilities.

Why not offer to put yourself on our Coffee Rota and help serve coffee along with a friend after some of our morning services. The Church is always looking for volunteers to add to the rota list.
