Methodist worshippers are marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of their church in Bethnal Green with tours of the parish and a weekend celebration in the summer.

The early years of Bethnal Green Methodist Church are tied in with founding the National Children’s Home and Orphanage, now known as Action for Children, which was set up next to the church in Bonner Road, near Victoria Park.

Church volunteers are putting together a mobile home exhibition exploring the nature of ‘home’ to encourage schoolchildren to explore the stories of their parents and think about the life journeys they might make themselves. Workshops to spark creativity around stories of the home are also being offered to schools.

Tours of Bethnal Green are planned, both guided and self-guided, where congregation members and others recall historic Methodist sights. A celebration weekend is on the cards for June 30 and July 1.
