The Methodist-Anglican Partnership (MAP)

This is a partnership in mission between the Abbey and Crowland Methodist Church. Before the Covid-19 pandemic MAP had successfully organized a Toddler Group that met on Thursday mornings and a youth group that met on Friday evenings. MAP also organized Messy Church events on Saturday afternoons. All of these activities are in abeyance owing to the pandemic.

MAP’s adult Explorers Group, which pre-pandemic met in the Crowland Hub fortnightly on Wednesdays at 7.30 p.m. is now meeting fortnightly on Wednesdays vat 8.15 p.m. via Zoom. The Explorers are a small, friendly group of adults interested in learning more about the Christian faith. If exploring the faith in an open, inquisitive way appeals to you, contact Charles Brown at

MAP also helped Crowland’s food bank get up and running. This food bank, located in Crowland Methodist Church, is now called ‘The Crowland Larder.’

Working with the Light Project in Peterborough MAP has also organized a night shelter for homeless persons for a week in the spring for the last two years.

MAP also works with Hope into Action to provide help for marginalized people.

Before the pandemic MAP arranged for the congregations at the Abbey and Crowland Methodist Church to worship together on Sundays for at least eight times a year.
