The Wesley Playhouse
The Wesley Playhouse is the first church-run outreach mission for families providing a soft play area and cafe. It is a new way of being church, part of the Fresh Expressions movement and a project of Howden Clough Methodist Church, near Birstall. The Wesley Playhouse was formed to spearhead this outreach to offer a new way of being Church in a more relevant way in the 21st Century.
The Playhouse is run by Caroline Holt (Pioneer Minister) and a team of volunteers. Caroline is very happy to help other churches think outside the box and do church differently.
Why not come to our Ark Cafe and relax, chat, meet up with friends with a drink and homemade cake.
- We provide a safe, friendly place for children from 0 to 11 to play in a themed soft play area, a cafe for adults and children to enjoy healthy, fair-trade food and drinks whilst chilling out.
- We can also host christenings, weddings, children's birthday parties and family celebrations. Come and see us, we will try and provide all you need.
- We provide a venue for Church youth groups to come and use ‘The Wesley Playhouse’ as part of their church life or as a special treat for church clubs.
See the Playhouse website for more details about us, including our current opening times.
