Heysham Free Methodist Church

Heysham FM Church was formed in 1971 by a group of people who felt a call of God on their lives to be a Bible believing Methodist people. Alongside others in Lancashire we joined the Free Methodist movement. 


Free Methodist Church UK is made up of leaders and churches with a desire to see healthy and thriving churches in all communities. We work with congregations to reach people with the message of Jesus. This is done through building strong relationships, sharing valuable resources and planting healthy Biblical congregations in the UK & Ireland.
