All, are, of course welcome at our regular services of worship, and this year we are joining with many historic buildings nationally to welcome visitors on the Saturday. In addition to the interior of the grade II listed building itself, there will be an exhibition of historic documents and photographs; an outline of the life Jeremiah Gilbert whose plaque is on the exterior wall; a ‘childrens’ trail’ describing key features of the building; and historic ‘cradle rolls’, recording the names of those baptised at Central over the years.

Information on the refurbishment in the 1980s. and on the varied and extensive present day work at Central will also be displayed.

Tea and coffee will be available.


Thank you for visiting Central Methodist Church web site, where we will try to tell you about ourselves.

We worship  in the heart of Chesterfield, where we seek to fulfil our Christian calling through witness, service and challenge.

We believe that the Christian Message of love and reconciliation provides meaning and challenge to all ages, and our worship style is designed to be relevant to a large (typically 125 -150) congregation who value thoughtful, varied and imaginative worship.

We believe that the Christian Way involves heart, mind and body, and our activities include Bible Study, and Fellowship Groups, as well as opportunities to meet more informally.

We believe that our Christian Purpose includes providing service to the town, and our activities include a Coffee Bar and Bookshop, a Day Care Centre for the Elderly and a Toddler Group.

We believe that Christians are called to think beyond their immediate neighbourhood, and we are actively involved in promoting Traidcraft.

We are, though, aware of our limitations, and therefore constantly seek to enhance our Christian witness, service and challenge
