Mission Statement

Phoenix Farm Methodist Church aims, through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit:

- To develop our personal faith in Jesus Christ
- To encourage the growth of the church family in all respects
- To fulfil the churches mission and ministry to and beyond the local community


We are keen to welcome new people into the fellowship, from far and near. Our church is situated in a suburban village in Nottingham and our members are very different from each other, and we celebrate this. If you are looking for a church, we would love to welcome you here. We understand that it can be difficult to settle into a new church, particularly if you are new to the area as well. That is why, if you visit us, we will welcome you with open arms, without being overbearing. If you have a particular need, we have people to whom you can talk and who can offer you support in prayer.

Our new minister, Rev’d. Richard Byass, has joined us recently and is already excited about the possibilities that come with sharing in the life of the community of Phoenix Farm and the people who make up the church here. He has a particular ministry around hospitality and how we share the love of God in practical and caring ways, through loving actions and through food and fellowship. This is something Richard hopes to develop as he settles in over the coming months. Why don’t you come along to church on a Sunday morning and join the congregation in their informal worship style? Tea and coffee are available throughout (and usually biscuits too!).

Richard is also passionate about seeing people reach their potential. He seeks to enable this by encouraging people to use their gifts and to help and nurture the community to flourish in faith and in life. He believes in a God who changes us for the better and who in turn enables us to make a difference in the world we live in through our acts of love and by our prayers for peace.

Richard has been married to Becca for nearly 15 years and they have two daughters. He has been a minister for over 13 years and is looking forward to the next phase of ministry here in the Nottingham East Methodist Circuit.
