The Bridge is currently in hibernation. If you need a church in the Hinckley, Burbage or Leicestershire area, or are interested in the Fresh Expressions movement, the following links might be useful to you.
The Bridge – History
Pre-dating even the Fresh Expressions movement by a couple of years, The Bridge was started in January 1995 by a number of people from the Hinckley Methodist Circuit who were keen to establish new ways of being church. We never met in a church building – instead, using neutral territory at Hastings High School. Over the years, we’ve tried to offer many different ways of being church, such as organising pony rides and cream teas, barbecues, wine tasting (for charity – and unusual for Methodists!), badminton, prayer labyrinths, taking a float in the Burbage Carnival, and lots of other small ways.
For over 20 years, The Bridge was part of the life of the Burbage and Hinckley communities and saw many people come to faith via its open and welcoming setting. We are truly grateful to all of the people who had the vision, energy, faith and commitment to launch and sustain The Bridge.
