Roker Methodist Church


Here at Roker Methodist Church we believe that belonging takes precedent over believing or behaving. Although we are predominantly an ageing congregation we look to be welcoming to all, regardless of age, class, sexuality, denomination or circumstance.

We would love you to come and join us on our journey of exploration into Gods' love and grace.

Dear Lord

Remind us of our calling to encourage one another in Christian love.

To show God to our community and to develop our church, worship and community into a place where all can find their home in Christ.


Our Minister

Rev. Gareth Phillips started his ministry in Roker in September 2012 after studing for a BA in ministry and theology at Durham university.

Gareth was born and raised in the North East of England and was a teacher of Science in several North Eastern Schools before moving into ministry. He is married to Jackie and has two children Matthew and Charlotte, he enjoys running, cycling and surfing (when his busy schedule allows) and is a fan of Middlesbrough Football club. He has been highly influenced by the writings of Rob Bell and Brian McLaren and describes his theology as liberal post evangelical !!!!!!!!
