The Methodist Chaplains contribute to the life of the University, supporting the
Multi-Faith Chaplaincy and assisting in its work and provision for all students.
The Methodist Church cherishes its place in the Body of Christ. It is one of the
largest Christian churches serving over 800,000 people in Great Britain. There are
some 5,000 churches in Great Britain and Methodist churches throughout the world
contribute to a worldwide membership of 80 million.
Students are welcome to contact the Methodist Chaplains by email. Alan is the
Superintendent Minister of the Colchester Methodist Circuit, John is a recently
retired minister who will be available from time to time on campus this year and
Phil is a Local (lay) Preacher who acts as liaison for Friends International.
There are 10 Methodist Churches in the Colchester area and 18 on the Tendring
peninsular. The Colchester city centre church is known as Castle Methodist Church,
just off the high street, opposite the toy shop (known as ‘The Entertainer’). Alan
is the minister here and also at Wivenhoe Church and Wimpole Road church, not far
from the Hythe. John attends Great Bentley Church (on the way to Clacton) and Phil
is a member at Wivenhoe Church - which is the nearest church to the campus and
provides a helpful venue for several student activities.
