Ley Hill Methodist minister and congregation in 2012
Welcome to Ley Hill Methodist Church in Buckinghamshire, England.
We are a family-orientated evangelical community. We have people of different nationalities and ages (from babies to the young at heart, and the oldest aged 100). The church serves the local area with members mainly from Ley Hill, Botley, Chesham and Bovingdon. Ley Hill church is an integral part of the local community, and is part of Churches Together for Chesham (CTfC), and the West Herts & Borders Methodist Circuit
The church has 2 services each Sunday at 11 am with Sunday School and 6 pm, and many activities for different age groups throughout the week, as well as fun and special events throughout the year.
Take a tour of the website to learn more!
Our weekly services are on Sundays and last about an hour, taken by our minister Rev Vindra Maraj-Ogden or a local preacher, usually in the chapel, with music by the worship group. About once a month the service includes communion.
In the evening service we have worship with hymns and a sermon at 6 pm. Sometimes a special service called Alive@Five is held at 5 pm followed by food.
Once a quarter village services are held with our Anglican friends from St George’s, Tyler’s Hill and these are held in Ley Hill village hall.
The Music Group accompanies church worship on Sundays. A choir sings at an annual Christmas concert and special occasions.
