Welcome to the online home of the United Church Cade Road, we are a Methodist and United Reformed Church operating in the South Ashford area of Ashford, Kent.
We hope that you will take the time to have a look around our website, which we are developing at the moment. You will find a section which provides some information on the history of both the United Reformed Churches and the Methodist churches that have come together over the years to create the United Church Cade Road.
We have a number of different acitivites going on in the church and we are currently working on extending the building to make space for our congregation.
All of us have been to church for the first time, but we understand that for some people going to church can be difficult, please do feel free to join and see what worship is about and join us for a service and maybe a drink afterwards. We look forward to meeting you.

More details about the JMA can be found at the Methodist Church website here.
