Ludlow Methodist Church sits in the heart of Ludlow’s old town (Click here for location and contact information’) and is a friendly and welcoming church. We aim to provide a place where people can learn about and meet God in welcoming, friendly and comfortable surroundings. With our fellow Christians in CTAL (Churches Together Around Ludlow) we aim to serve the community in all we do. We are particularly proud of the partnership agreement that we have with the charity Hands Together Ludlow. The building dates from 1879 but has been thoroughly modernised in recent years. This includes Wesley’s Cafe at the front of the building, which is open for snacks and light lunches 6 days a week.
Having achieved our silver Eco Church award we are now working towards gold. Regular meetings are held for those interested in environment matters and care of creation, and our monthly church magazine includes a regular update in the 'Green Pages' section.
Ludlow is a thriving medieval market town with a lively community feel, busy with events and festivals throughout the year. The historic town centre is situated above the River Teme and is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh Marches.
Ludlow has a reputation for the quality of its food and drink with the local area providing an abundance of quality producers. Every September the town is filled with food lovers from all over the UK, and beyond for the Ludlow Food and Drink Festival.
Our Minister, the Reverend Denise Hargreaves took up her new appointment in Ludlow on 1st September 2023.
She was born in Wolverhampton and attended Stratton Street Methodist Church up to the age of 19 when she joined the Women's Royal Naval Service (WRNS). During this time she met her husband, Maurice; they have been married for thirty eight years. Following service in the WRNS, Denise served for twenty years in the Library services of Hampshire and Portsmouth City. After a call to preach and to ministry, she served sixteen years in the Gloucestershire Circuit where their Border Collie, Alfred, was born. Denise and Maurice have one married daughter and one adorable grandson.
