  Mission Statement:  

      We provide warm fellowship in the name of Jesus Christ and worship centred on the power of the Holy Spirit.

       We seek to spread the Good News of salvation throughout the local community and beyond by worshipping, witnessing and working together.

        We aim to lead lives that reflect God’s love for everyone.

  The Village:  
  Horndon-on-the-Hill is a small Essex village situated mostly on a hill a few miles north of Stanford-le-Hope. Horndon has a population of about 2000.

  The Chapel:  
  On the weekend of 13 and 14 October, 1990 we celebrated 100 years of worship in the present Chapel, although the story of Methodism goes back at least to 1850 when one woman started delivering tracts. The first meetings were held in 1866 and in 1885 the first wooden weatherboard building was constructed.

On the last weekend in June each year the main village street is closed to traffic with many events taking place throughout the weekend. We in the Methodist Chapel take a very active part; in the chapel there is a flower festival and an exhibition of old local photographs and an opportunity for a quiet time. In the Youth Hall (built in 1963) we serve a wide range of home-made refreshments. Many hundreds of people visit us each year - what a wonderful opportunity it is for us.
