Ministries

The hallmarks of our ministries are small-groups focused on discipleship, faith and applying the Bible to their daily lives. Ministries are open to all church members and visitors. 

Sunday School & Junior Church

The Sunday School and Junior Church meet every Sunday (except on

Family Service Sundays and during

the summer school break).

 

The Sunday School ministries' primary aim is to nurture, train and keep our children between the aged of 6 and 18 within the church retaining their christian ethics and values.

 

We aims to provide helpful resources to stimulate our young people through the Sunday School programme and as the name suggests most of our young people will meet on a Sunday morning during the main service to go through age-appropriate learning in a stimulating and interactive way.

 

Our Sunday School and Junior Church play an important part in the life our  congregation and all our youth, whether regulars or visiting are invited to join the classes that normally begin part-way through our Sunday Service. All Sunday School teachers and assistants are CRB checked.

Men's Fellowship

Park Lane Men's Fellowship - March 2014

Men's Fellowship currently meet twice a month; every last Saturday of the month at 9.30am for breakfast and fellowship at the Church. Mid month the men meet after Sunday Service in the small chapel as part of the planning committee.

 

The Park Lane Men's Fellowship group was started in 2010. Their aim is to to enable the men of the church to gather together at least once a month in a comfortable social basis to share fellowship with one another. We have developed new activities for the church with two well received 'Men's Takeover' Sunday services and a programme to establish an audit of skills from the church membership so we can 'give back' help and assistance to those in need.  They encourage more men young, teens and those young-at-heart to join their meetings and sharing.

Sunday Service Creché

Some of our dedicated Sunday creche assistants

Park Lane have a supervised crèche where you can leave your children during

the normal Sunday service or stay with them if you choose to. It is available from 10.30am until the end of service normally around 11.30am.

Crèche gives parents the opportunity to enjoy the church service without having to be concerned with looking after their young ones. It provides a safe environment for children up the age of 4 to play together under supervision on the church premises.

 

All helpers and Sunday School teachers are CRB checked and are members of the church. Our rotas ensure that two members are on duty each Sunday morning in the creche. Directions to the crèche are well sign posted as you enter the church however you are welcome to ask the Stewards at the door for directions and any further information.

Pastoral Visitors

Within the life of the Church

the role of the Pastoral Visitor is one of the most significant. Its importance has several facets, because the visitor is part of the structure of the Church which enables members and adherents to sense that they belong to

a Christian community.

 

Hence, part of the responsibility is to be a channel of communication, linking people together and keeping them in touch with what is happening in the life of the Church. The visitor is also significant in providing pastoral care to one or more individuals (their pastoral group), by demonstrating an interest in their lives and providing support and encouragement at particular times of need. As a member of a wider team, visitors can offer not just their own time, skills and resources, but those of the Church as a body. The visitor also has a role to play in assisting others to grow in their faith and discipleship, through listening to their experience, discussing concerns and providing encouragement.

 

A new committee has also been formed to offer constructive feedback about worship, visiting and to support preachers as they seek to nurture the Christian

faith and witness of our diverse congregation and community.

Action For Children

Action for Children have been working in partnership with the Methodist Church across the UK for 140 years to give society's most vulnerable and neglected children and young people the support, care and advice they need. 

Thomas Bowman Stephenson, a Methodist minister from the North East of England, had a passionate commitment to social justice and campaigned on behalf of the vulnerable of his day. From the time he moved to London, Stephenson challenged the Methodist Church to address the plight of homeless children on the street.

 

Park Lane has supported Action for Children and NCH for many years and hold special yearly services including a Christmas Gift service along with guest speakers from Action for Children to support their valuable work.

Brent 4 Jesus

Brent 4 Jesus is a Ministry conceived in the heart of God and birthed by the Open Door Community Church, Harlesden in 1990.

 

It is a ministry in the London Borough of Brent and comprises a group of churches that have united with one specific agenda - to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the borough.

 

Like many other ministries, Brent for Jesus is God’s idea and a strategy He has employed to establish unity across the denominational divide. He is empowering His people to unite with one heart, and speak with one voice, to fulfill the Great Commission (Mark 16:15) in a borough where practically the whole world resides in microcosm.
