UMC (Uppermill Methodist Church) is an active, friendly church that has been serving the Uppermill community for over 100 years. We offer a lively range of activities, groups and worship.
In response to God’s love for us, we strive to ‘live the Jesus way’, through:
Worship : We give praise and thanks to God in different styles of worship.
Learning & Caring : We are a caring community that encourages one another.
Service : We respond to others needs in whatever ways we can, in Jesus’ name.
Reaching Out : We want to share our love for Jesus, so that others can experience it too.
The best way to find out more about Uppermill Methodist Church is to come along and join us in worship - You are sure to receive a warm welcome.
Children are very welcome at all UMC services. Rest-assured it doesn't matter if your child wanders around and explores the church, we want them to feel at home and welcome .
We have two entrances - one at the front with a number of steps and another with no steps and completely wheelchair and pram friendly. Our upstairs rooms are accessible via a large new lift, and we have two accessible toilets, one in the church porch, the other in the Methodist Centre.
