Who we are

Located on Hope Farm Road (and formerly known as Whitby Methodist Church), the contemporary building is fully accessible, with on-site parking. The central worship space is welcoming and open, furnished with comfortable seating, utilising digital presentation and effective worship/stage lighting – all offering flexibility for differing formats of worship, as well as meetings and events.

The church is regularly open for 10.30am and 6.30pm worship on Sundays (7.00pm for New Song Café) with weekday worship and activities through the week – click the tabs above and view the preaching plan at the foot of this page for details. Hope Farm is where The Hope Journey began – a growing educational ministry to schools throughout Wirral and further afield. Function spaces are available for hire.

Families and individuals of all ages are welcomed to join us in engaging with and celebrating God’s purpose for our lives and in service to others, including Christian services of baptism, marriage and funerals (please contact the Minister through the Wirral Methodist Churches office).
