Anerley is one of nine Churches that make up the Blackheath and Crystal Palace Circuit of the Methodist Church. We are a small but thriving Congregation that works hard to meet the needs of our local Community.
Our premises are well maintained and adaptable and we hope that you will find our friendly welcome as warm and welcoming as the premises themselves.
The Church has around 50 members and in addition to our regular Sunday Services we run or provide facilities for a wide range of different activities. These include, other Faith Groups, Bible Studies, The Penge Community Pre-School, Dance and Drama Groups for young people, A Social Group for the older members of the Church, Dog Training and Keep Fit. Our Halls are also available to hire at competitive prices for parties, clubs, associations and community activities.
Children and families are always welcome at Anerley and we have a Junior Church for the young people. However, on the fourth Sunday of the month we have a special family service when children, their parents and carers are particularly welcome to a family orientated and relaxed style of ‘All Age Worship’..
Baptisms, Weddings and, Funerals can be arranged with our Minister.
A full list of our weekly activities can be found on this website together with contact details for church officers and the leaders of groups who meet on the premises.
I am the Minister here at Anerley Methodist Church. I am married to Sarah Malik.
We are parents of two son's, Rohan aged six and Roshan aged three. Rohan is very proud to be part of the Junior Church.
As a minister my vision for this church is to:
· Continue to be a welcoming and caring community
· Nurture and equip our community in their Christian discipleship
· Prepare the church for mission and evangelism at local and wider levels
· Resource and equip Lay Leadership in the church
If you are looking for a warm and friendly worship environment and to be a part of your local worship community please come and visit us. You will find Anerley Methodist Church an accessible, hospitable and nurturing place. Our leadership team is there to help all the members and visitors to experience the warmth of God's love in our fellowship.
Every Blessing Imran.

Over the weekend of 9th and 10th May 2015 Anerley Methodist Church celebrated 150 years of Christian Mission and Worship on our present site in Anerley. Our roots actually extend further back than 1865 – in 1862 there are records of Wesleyan Services taking place in a house at number 2, Marlbro Terrace – now 33 Maple Road.
On Saturday 9th May we put on a display of Church Memorabilia and enjoyed a Caribbean Evening.
Our morning service on 10th May was led by the President of the Methodist Conference Rev. Kenneth Howcroft and was followed by a 'Bring and Share Lunch' and the cutting of our Anniversary Cake.
Throughout 2015 several of our past Ministers returned to take services and to renew old friendships.
In October we were entertained at a gospel concert led by church member Clarence Hunte and the well known 'Soul Sanctuary' Gospel Choir.
Photographs taken at our various anniversary events and a photo book can be viewed from the Web Links on the left of the 'Home Page' and then by clicking on 'Church Family' and 150th Anniversary.
Rev. Imran Malik was appointed to the Blackheath & Crystal Palace Circuit on 1st September 2012. Imran has pastoral oversight for Anerley and our sister Church at Upper Norwood.

As a Church family we are striving together to love God, the community, and each other, through Worship, Learning, Service, Caring, and Mission.
In worship we aspire to be celebratory, sincere, relevant and open to exploring new ways of worshiping God. We want to engage with the realities of life, encouraging and enabling people of all abilities to express and explore their relationship with God.
We acknowledge and value that people have different levels of faith and understanding.
We seek to provide opportunities for learning, nurturing and discipleship within a supportive and accepting church family.
We seek to offer opportunities for people to identify, develop and use their gifts, talents and resources for individual and mutual growth.
Service and Caring
We seek to follow Jesus’ example in welcoming and caring for all with whom we come into contact, whatever their circumstances.
We want to be good neighbours and support our local and wider communities, in times of joy and times of need. We want to share our Church family and its resources with the people around us.
Through our love in action, we hope to demonstrate God’s love and care for everyone including the needs of our global family.
We accept with gratitude, wonder and amazement the good news of God’s love for us, revealed in Jesus Christ. Through our worship, learning, service and caring we seek to proclaim and witness God’s love to others that they might seek it and know it for themselves.
