Bushey and Oxhey Methodist Church

Outreach

Our Church is involved in a number of Outreach activities ranging from the Boffees coffee bar that is open each morning during the week from 10 am to 12 noon through to welcoming over 30 toddlers and their carers when they meet in the Church Hall every Thursday. 

A number of organisations use our Church premises regularly – these include Bushey Dance, Zumba with Trisha, Karate, Fitness Pilates, Genius Vision, Red Cross and the Bushey Plectra Orchestra. 

We have a strong commitment to supporting diverse, local and national charitable organisations.  Each year we give benevolences that equate to approximately 25% of our income.   The charities we regularly support or have supported in the recent past together with a brief description of their valuable work are listed below;
