Burbage members worshiping in our temporary home in Burbage Infants School.
Burbage Church is a busy and exciting church. There is a strong sense of mission and outreach as the church seeks to respond to the needs of the community.
Our church motto is: ‘Aspiring to reach the community’
A huge vote of thanks to the Hinckley Circuit for a grant of £50K over and above the £30K already granted. This is an amazing trust and commitment to us from the Circuit body – AND THE LORD BE PRAISED. This allows us to be potentially “fully funded”. The over arching requirement of Charity Trustees is to ensure under legal requirements that we enter into a contract knowing that we can support it to it’s completion. This does exactly that.
This funding allows us to issue a “letter of intent” to the contractor which allows the Contractor to set in motion the administration process to close Wesley Walk (8 weeks needed), produce a defined design and place the order for the Glulam beams which are on the contractor’s critical planning path.
Exciting News. Methodist Connexional Grant awarded. We have been awarded £200K towards our new building to which we would like to thank the Methodist Connexional Grants Committee Click the Read more about the building plans below for further information.
The congregation is looking forward to a new church building and anticipates that work will commence in 2016. However, the purpose of the new building is not simply to create a beautiful church, but to further God’s mission – and we are working for that purpose now. Latest design received planning permission on 20th November 2015. We are currently awaiting final design details. Read more about the building plans

On the 6th March 2016 we celebrated 150 years of worship at our current building, we were blessed with a lovely service in our temporary home led by our own minister Rev Sue along with our special guest the Rev Sheryl Anderson, chair of the Liverpool District. Seen here cutting the cake.
The Good Ship Lollipop
The Good Ship Lollipop is back in port after two successful cruises. We were blessed with good weather on both occasions and all the passengers and crew are safely back on dry land. The success of both cruises belongs to many people. Thanks go to everyone who sailed with us; to the smiling and attentive waiters and waitresses, the invaluable work of those behind the scenes, Hinckley Methodist Church Drama Group, the Ukulele Band and Moira, for the use of her garden. Special thanks go to Moira’s daughters, Noreen and Susan, for being inspired to turn a large tent into a luxury cruise ship. With your help we raised £1,365 for the Development Fund.
Thank you. Carol and Moira
