The church is spacious and light with a patio outside the front doors for photos. Modest fees are charged for this occasion, and we also have a large hall which could be booked for a reception afterwards, if the ceremony is on a Saturday; but there is a strict no-alcohol policy.
These take place on Sunday mornings as part of our normal service. The Methodist Church offers baptism for babies and children, as well as adults, and in the case of children, a warm welcome into the family of the church is part of the ceremony. We enjoy baptisms at Eltham Park – they are always very happy occasions.
The church can be booked on any day for these services following consultation with the minister who can also advise regarding interment or cremation, which, of course, take place elsewhere.
A small reception can also be booked, depending on the day; but the strict no-alcohol policy applies.
BAPTISMS, WEDDINGS, FUNERALS AND THANKSGIVINGS
For all baptisms, weddings, funerals or thanksgiving ceremonies, please contact our Minister, Rev’d Richard A. J. Grocott on 020 8857 1281 and he will advise you on all you would like to know about the ceremony and anything else related to it.
Eltham Park Methodist Church is a fine Edwardian building, with the original beamed roof and leaded windows, and an encircling balcony. It is in good repair and has modern lighting, heating, and comfortable seats. We like to welcome people from Eltham and round about to celebrate their important days such as baptisms and weddings in our much-loved church. Sadder occasions such as funerals are also part of what our church sees as being an important contribution to the life of our community.
