Hanwell Methodist Church
Composed and designed by Ray Garnett
Location and Directions
Hanwell Methodist Church, is located near the centre of Hanwell on Church Road near the junction with Uxbridge Road (A4020) which runs west from Shepherd’s Bush to Uxbridge.
It can be approached by the North Circular Road (A406) whereupon you would turn west at its junction with Ealing Common onto the Uxbridge Road (A4020). As you proceed straight along the Uxbridge Road you will first go through Ealing then through West Ealing and then towards Hanwell. As you approach the centre of Hanwell going west you will see St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church and Gold’s Gym on the left and St Mellitus Church and garden on the right hand side of the road at the Church Road junction which is controlled by a small roundabout. Turn right at the roundabout into Church Road. (Please note that when travelling west you need to turn right into Church Road before going past St Joseph’s Church and Gold’s Gym). Hanwell Methodist Church is on the right about 100m up Church Road after the Shell garage and by the bus stop.
Central and District Line Underground
The nearest underground station served by the central and district lines is Ealing Broadway. If you go to Ealing Broadway station, when you exit the station turn left and proceed down to the main Uxbridge Road and catch a bus going west towards Hanwell Broadway.
London buses 83, 207, 427, 607, E3, E8 run frequently along the Uxbridge Road towards Church Road and the centre of Hanwell. See the sketch map for bus stop locations where to alight.
Piccadilly Line Underground

Bus route 195 going north outside the station will also take you into Hanwell but you will then have about a five minute walk to the Church. See the sketch map for the nearest bus stop locations.
Overground Trains from Paddington or Heathrow
Hanwell main line rail station is served by the fast TfL rail service to and from London Paddington. These trains are timetabled about four every hour. When open, Crossrail trains (Elizabeth line) will stop at Hanwell. The Church is about a five minute walk from Hanwell station. As you leave the station platform at the bottom of the steps turn right and at the end of the tunnel left into Station Road. At the end of the street turn right into Church Road (do not go under the railway bridge) and continue down to the Church which is on the left after the Health Centre complex. The station and its relative position to the Church is marked on the sketch map.
If the train from the station you are coming from does not stop at Hanwell, it may
well stop at Ealing Broadway from where there are frequent buses to Hanwell.
