Audlem Methodist Church is an all-age Christian community of about a hundred and fifty people. Most live in Audlem, although others travel from nearby towns and villages. Photographs of most of the congregation can be seen in the Audlem Methodist Church Picture Gallery, which is displayed in the chapel.


According to one of Methodism's foundation documents, 'all those who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and accept the obligation to serve him in the life of the Church and the world are welcome as members of the Methodist Church'.

At present we have just over 100 members at Audlem. A confirmation course is offered regularly for those considering church membership. Recent courses have run in 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2011, with a number of young people deciding to be confirmed (photo). Speak with the minister if you would like to know more about becoming a church member at Audlem.

Young people

At Audlem Methodist Church there still are children and young people! The Church is an all-age community with a significant proportion of the congregation aged under twenty-five. Activities for children and young people are organised under the YCMC umbrella.


The Minister is the Rev'd Gary Windon in Audlem, and the Audlem Mission Area (which includes Hankelow and Hatherton). Gary recently joined us in September 2106.

The 'Audlem Mission Area' is part of the Cheshire South Circuit. Contact Gary on 07929 708976
