Caterham Methodist Church is situated on a main road, in a residential area with several housing developments nearby.  It is a multi-purpose building.

The church is small, with a mainly elderly congregation, but on most Sundays we have a small number of children worshipping with us.  It was established in the early 20th Century as a base for non-Conformist soldiers at the Caterham Barracks. (Those are now closed - and converted into a residential area called "The Village").


First to be built were the "rest rooms" for the soldiers, followed by a traditional non-Conformist chapel. The building became an ordinary Methodist Church many years ago, and underwent a significant re-casting in the 1990s. The "rest rooms" are now on a Lease to Saturn V Gymnastics club, who do important work with people with learning difficulties. The "Church" became a multi-purpose space, which is very well used throughout the week.

Our worship follows a mainly traditional style, but we have a mix of traditional and new hymns.  The first part of the service is geared to the young members of our congregation, with a suitable song, and talk or activity that caters for them.  From time to time we hold an all-age service. 

We provide a Sunday School and the children will normally leave us for the rest of the service except when there is all-age worship.
