About us

First and foremost our Church is a group of Christian people, secondly we are a group who meet under the banner of the Methodist Church.  Our Church - which has been active in Melbourne for well over 200 years - is a lively, vibrant church that takes its social responsibility seriously. On Sundays we enjoy relatively modern worship styles with good bible-based preaching. We are blessed with a large junior church who leave the main service to enjoy their own activities in Wesley Hall next door. The church has a broad range of age groups with an excellent mix of local families and families that have moved into the area more recently. We pride ourselves in being a truly supportive, Christian family church with an extensive pastoral support network into the community. We support many of the town's events taking an active part in the Melbourne Festival and Carnival Days.
We are part of the National Forest East Methodist Circuit and are overseen by our minister Rev Sally Ratcliffe
