Chapel Road,  Stanningfield,  IP30 0LL


   Small village church on outskirts of the village of Stanningfield built 150 years ago.  Very welcoming and caring community knitted together by prayer for one another.  Members who have moved into the town continue to support us and are always interested in the welfare of friends at church.

We work hard raising money for charity.  Bradfield Methodist Church maintains good relations with our Church of England friends at St Nicholas in Stanningfield.  Harvest Festival gifts are given to their Food Bank project.  Services are shared at Christmas.

Our premises are used by the Stanningfield Ladies' Club for their fortnightly meetings.

Services: Sunday 11:00am

Name of Minister: 
Our new Minister, Rev Ruth Ridge, will be starting in September.  Until then, if you have any enquiries, please contact Circuit Office (Tel: 01284 731082) or our Superintendent Minister Rev Debbie Borda (Tel: 01284 754574).


We celebrated our 152nd Chapel Anniversary Services on Sunday 19th May.  We welcomed our friends Mr Michael Topple from Colchester to lead our morning worship and Rev Peter Goodhall from Haverhill Methodist Church to lead our evening service.  It was an inspiring day with excellent preaching in the morning and evening, accompanied by some members of other churches.  Michael encouraged those present that the mission goes on and not to lose heart.


On Saturday 8th June, Bradfield Methodist Church invited the village to tea, following on from the success of last year's venture.  Afternoon Teas were provided by TOCT (Trinity Occasional Catering Team) again.  Although the weather had been wet in the morning, the sun came out in the afternoon, and we welcomed around 30 people onto our chapel premises.  Bradfield continues to join in local events as well, to try to make ourselves known to the wider community.


To help celebrate Bradfield Methodist Church's Anniversary, the church put on a special Afternoon Tea for residents of Bradfield and Stanningfield by special invitation.  Around 40 people attended. This event took place on Saturday 25th August 2018, 3:00pm - 5:00pm.  Initiated by our minister, Rev John Boardman, this gave the wider community the chance to get to know the Bradfield Methodist Church family and see inside the chapel, ably supported with Trinity Methodist Church's Occasional Catering Team (TOCT) doing the refreshments.
