Our newshounds report:




Top News items!


The work behind the scenes has shown that all our personal data we hold is within the legal bases (or 'basises' if you prefer). There are only a couple of items where personal data is shared outside Rochford Methodist Church - church officers' details shared with the Circuit (with consent) and details we need to share with the Connexion (the Methodist Church of Great Britain) and HMRC for those who have Gift-Aided their contribution (statutory).

The Trustees For Methodist Church Purposes (TMCP), are the Legal and the Property side of the Connexion, and they provide advice and model forms/templates. They have provided the Privacy Policy/Notice required by the GDPR and you can find the most up to date version via our GDPR page here.


Our Facebook Group has all the up to date information about what is happening in Rochford Methodist Church in greater detail. We also have a Facebook Page for more general information, or we have an embryonic Twitter account at @rochfordmeth

Our House group is usually on the last Wednesday of the month. Contact us to find out if, when, and where we are meeting.

Weekly notices, as available, can be found here

The next Over 60s' Tuesday Lunch Club takes place on 10th July at 12 noon.

You need to book a place in advance for the 2-course meal (so we can get the catering right) or if you want a lift, so contact Margaret on 544252 soon. The cost of the meal will be £3. If you are UNDER 60 but want to accompany someone who is over 60 then you are welcome to come along with them.

Fund raising:

We are always open to ideas for fund-raising ideas in order to develop our services to the community at large, especially if you have the idea and carry it through. If you do have an idea, please run it past the Stewards and you will have all the support we can provide. We are especially interested in activities that can involve people from outside our church membership.

'Off menu' items of interest relating to the administration of the church exist on this website. If you want/need access to them, contact Dave who will give you the necessary details.

These items are:

  • Our Certificate of Employer's Liability Insurance which is required to be publicly displayed under the Employers' Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969;
  • Our Church's Security Policy;
  • Our Safeguarding Policy;
  • A printable copy of 'When I Die . .' (a booklet to help your family by leaving instructions about what you want at your own funeral).
  • When available, our Privacy Policy will be stored here for members to access (as required by the GDPR).

As usual, all services, activities and meetings are open to everybody, whether or not a member of our, or any, church.
