'My prayer is that Christian Churches will be shaped by a renewed commitment to children, openness to children, and pledge to care and speak out for children as a clear expression of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Martyn Atkins, President of the Methodist Conference 2007
Our purpose at Chelsea Methodist Church is to help families work to their strengths, to overcome their challenges and to become the parents they strive to be, with children who flourish. In seeking to achieve this aim we provide a programme of activities designed to incorporate all ages, including, of course, parents and carers.
Our Safeguarding Officer is Val Campbell.
Each month there is an 'all age' service where old and young worship together. At other times, young children are invited to seperate worship activities which is ran by church volunteers.
The Jigsaw Club - working in partnership with West London Action for Children, this activity is aimed at parents and carers with pre-school children of 5 years and under. There is a range of workshops on a variety of parenting related themes and the children play in a safe, well provided environment. Lunch is provided.
