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 have 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.
