Your local Methodist/United Reformed Church meeting in South Ashford

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation we will not be opening our building at this time.  Service will be online via Zoom or our YouTube channel.  Links are posted weekly.

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.

Lent 1 – 21st February

Into the Wilderness – Sand

Just between his baptism and the beginning of his adult ministry,  Jesus went into the wilderness for 40 days, “to be tested”.

Read the story of Jesus wandering in the desert – Luke 4:1-11

I wonder …

  • Have you ever felt that you have been tempted?
  • When have you walked on hard, barren or stony ground?
  • What have you learned there? What might you learn there?


Holy God, help us when we walk through the difficult places in our lives. Help us to know that the closer we walk to you, the closer you will be to us. Amen. 

Lent Journey

Over the next 6 Sunday’s we will be sharing a journey through Lent and we encourage you all to journey with us whether as an individual, family or bubble.

Lent is a time to pay more attention to the inner life, which affects our outer life in the world around us. Christ’s life, ministry, and death are remembered during this season.

May you have a blessed Lent and remember that God loves you – always.

Prayer for the Beginning of Lent

Creator of my Life, renew me: bring me to new life in you.
Touch me and make me feel whole again.
Help me to see your love
in the passion, death and resurrection of your son.
Help me to observe Lent
in a way that allows me to celebrate that love.
Prepare me for these weeks of Lent as I feel both deep sorrow for my sins and your undying love for me.
