The Church at the Heart of Dawley

About us

The Dawley Christian Centre is very much a hands-on Community Church caring for the people of Dawley and the surrounding areas.

We are a Methodist Church and as such is part of the Telford Methodist Circuit and is a founder member of the Central Telford Ecumenical Partnership (CTEP), and part of Telford Christian Council.  For further information on The Methodist Church click here.

Our aims are to provide a Centre for Christian worship and learning, to serve the local and wider communities by making the premises available for use as required, and also through volunteer work in the coffee bar; by involvement in local community partnerships to help with local social and educational needs; and by raising the profile of wider mission work at home and overseas.

We are blessed with two Ministers, those being Rev. Kate Cook and Deacon Julie Morton who are both always happy to speak with you.  If you would like to make an appointment with either Kate or Julie please call 01952 505108 and we will be delighted to make an appointment for you.

Our worship takes a number of styles from formal Sunday Service which start at 10:30am to informal prayer and bible study sessions.  You are welcome to join us for communion on a Thursday morning in the small chapel.
 
As a church we pray for our brothers and sisters, so if you would like us to pray for you please contact us and we can incorporate your request in our main act of worship each Sunday.
 

Can you help those in need in Telford?

 
No one in Telford & Wrekin should need to go without the basic essentials to keep themselves and their families sheltered, fed, clean, clothed, warm and healthy.
 
A recent headline in the Daily Mail online reads:
 
“Parents skipping meals so children don’t go hungry as families struggle with longest cost of living squeeze in 60 years,
  • One in ten families are skipping meals or relying on charity and hand-outs.
  • Mothers are putting their health at risk by eating only every other day.
  • Food banks now forced to ration the donations they give to hungry families.

Hunger is becoming a reality for one in ten families who are skipping meals or relying on charity and hand-outs, a study said yesterday.
In some cases, mothers are putting their health at risk by eating only every other day to make sure their children do not go hungry.
Some nine per cent of people have sometimes skipped meals, gone without to feed their children or relied on friends, family or charity for food in the past 12 months, according to a study backed by Tesco.”
 
Jesus tells us to feed the hungry –
 
And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.” Luke 3:11
 
There are people in Telford who are struggling to put food on the table.
 
You can help.
 
Please consider putting an extra tin or packet into your shopping basket this week and bring it into the Dawley Christian Centre.  For a list of the most needed items, please click here for a Foodbank shopping list.
