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.
In this edition of the podcast, Christine Slater helps us to think about the nature of the Suffering Servant in Isaiah 53, verses 4 to 12. The reading is read by Liz Talbot, and prayers and editing are by Lisa Cooper. Songs from “Singing the Faith”, numbers 272 and 470, are sung by Ruth and Joy Everingham.
All are welcome to join us this Sunday morning with services at both Cade Road and Kennington.
10:30am at Kennington led by Mr Colin Pearson
10:30am at Cade Road led by Revd Paul Dean and including an act of Holy Communion for those on Zoom or in the church (unfortunately not via our YouTube live stream that will finish after the second hymn).

We welcome Revd Gill Songer who speaks to us this week on Mark 10 v17-31, which is read by Stewart. We also listen to Be Thou my Vision performed by Matt Beckingham and Will you come and follow me performed by Joy and Ruth Everingham.
Tom Lewis reflects on Psalm 124. Christine Slater is our reader, and the podcast includes Taizé music by Hugh Burnham and the hymn, “Be Thou My Vision”, recorded last week, at the United Service, Kennington.
Our morning service is at 10:30 am at our Kennington premises on Faversham road, just below Towers School.
There is no service at Cade Road this week.

Roy Hollands reflects on knowing our place in the family. Rowena Dean reads from the Gospel of Mark, 9: 30 – 37, and the Letter of James 3:13. The songs are the Servant King (StF 272) and Community of Christ (StF 681), both from Joy and Ruth’s repertoire.
