Clapton Methodist Church

Minister: Rev Paulo Bessa da Silva 07736 955808

Contact: Church Steward Mr Mackenzie Greer

Address: (adj. 105) Downs Road, Clapton, E5 8DS


Sunday: 11.00am every Sunday. Holy Communion is normally celebrated on the third Sunday of the month. Family Service 4th Sunday of the month.

Clapton Methodist Church has a family feel because it includes many extended families, often down several generations.  But the Clapton family is in no way inward-looking.  Rather, it is glad to welcome whoever seeks a spiritual home here – and to share Christ’s love in tangible ways with people most in need in the wider community and in other parts of the world.

The church recently celebrated its 150th anniversary.  It has been in its new premises since 2011 and is ‘home’ to many families from Montserrat, as well as from other parts of the world.
