Central Methodist in Bacup is one of the largest buildings in the circuit and houses lots of different activities, especially ones involving the local community such as coffee mornings and drop-ins. Central has a congregation who are passionate towards helping the local people and being a welcoming community. Central Methodist shares its building with another church called 'Christchurch & Holy Trinity' who you might also want to get to know, their services are particularly child-friendly.
