Covid-19 Emergency

Battle Methodist Church's Emmanuel Centre has closed for the duration of the emergency. Please note that emails and messages left on the answerphone will not be monitored until further notice but in case of urgent pastoral need, please contact our minister, Rev Tricia Williams on 01424 733137.

Members of the church will keep in touch with each other via electronic means.Pastoral Visitors are seeking to help. The best way is by telephone as a personal living voice means more than a written (e-mail or text) message. And a prayer with someone over the phone or a video-link is wonderfully uplifting and reassuring. Please let us know if there is a need of any kind that others can meet and the message shall be passed on to those who have offered to help.

God bless you all#

During this time of self-isolation and social distancing we have to face the seemingly impossible task of worshipping without congregating. Christians throughout history have always found ways to cope with adversity and the changing world around them and in this spirit we are offering online worship for existing members and new visitors to our churches in the Hastings, Bexhill and Rye Methodist Circuit. Please follow the link below to read, hear, watch and join in with the prayer and praise of our circuit. Select the churches that you find to hear services that have been so carefully made.

Wesley’s Chapel in London will also continue to live-stream worship, adapted for no physical congregation.

Service times
Wednesday 12:45
Thursday 12:45
Sunday 9:45 and 11:00

All these services will be available at:

Battle Methodist Church funded the new Church by the sale of the obsolete old chapel on Lower Lake, by fund raising and donations by its members and friends, and by gifting by the wider Methodist Church of Great Britain community and by other local and national donors.

The maintenance and running costs of Battle Methodist Church's Emmanuel Centre are met by its members and supporters, and from the proceeds generated by various events and the hiring out of its facilities.
