Our Building

The Current Building

As well as the main church area there is a comfortable lounge, a hall, a downstairs meeting room and an upstairs meeting room. The church and lounge are open 9.30 -12.00 during the week.

The building is home to a wide variety of activities throughout the week. In addition to Sunday services we organise a range of activities for all ages - we are proud to provide a family friendly meeting place for young children and their parents and carers. You can find information about all the church activities in the groups and family pages and see out what's on when in our calendar. Information about the lounge is below. A number of outside organisations  use the church rooms - if you are interested in hiring rooms information is here.

The "Vision Project"

Even with a relatively modern building, after 30 years there are things that need reviewing. We have drawn up plans to install new entrance doors - as many will know the current ones are difficult to navigate and something of a nightmare if you are less able or have children with you. We have been fundraising and hope to start the work in the summer.

We also plan to revamp our foyer to include more family friendly facilities for baby changing etc. 

The Lounge

Our lounge area is open daily from 10.30 - 12 noon for coffees, teas, juice and chat.  Set in comfortable, relaxing surroundings, it makes a great meeting place in the centre of town.  Children are very welcome and can use the play area.  All profits go to charity.

On Wednesdays the coffee lounge is open from 9.30am until noon, selling a delicious range of coffees and homemade cakes, all for the best price in Wilmslow!

Wilmslow Methodist preschool uses four rooms within the church building. The rooms are spacious bright and airy and offers a  The pre-school offers a wide range of toys, crafts, apparatus, reading and writing opportunities and the support of an experienced and highly qualified adult team.
