Folkestone Methodist Church

Welcome to our Methodist Church

We offer a traditional warm Methodist welcome to all friends and visitors. We are a part of the new South Kent Circuit of the Methodist Church, which formed in September 2011 when the former Folkestone and Ashford circuits joined forces to work together in unity. This new circuit covers from Folkestone across to Headcorn & Tenterden, and down across the Romney Marsh.

We are situated in a town centre location on Sandgate Road, Folkestone, right on the edge of the shopping area and opposite the Christ Church memorial garden and clock tower.
