The Cross is a lively group of Christians who are passionate about sharing the love of God and finding new ways to tell the life-changing story of Jesus.  We look forward to welcoming you. You will find us on the corner of Claughton Road and Exmouth Street, Birkenhead (by the Fire Station). The church aims to be accessible to all. Our main entrance is at ground level and we have disabled toilet facilities. Limited parking is available at the front of the church and alternative parking is available in the car park at the side of our youth centre. So if you want to find out more about God’s love for you, or are looking for new church we look forward to meeting you. Find out more on our website.
The Cross is a busy Methodist Church & Neighbourhood Centre in Birkenhead, on the Wirral. Our worship is modern, often informal and “café style”. Singing is led by our band, with a variety of instruments. The prayers, readings and message are short and to the point, and we regularly use videos, dance, drama, and puppets in our services. The words to the hymns and songs are displayed on a projector, so there’s no need to search through book after book.

We have a large youth church, and we run a club after the Sunday morning service until 2:45 pm. There are discussion groups, a sensory room and table top sports such as Air Hockey, Pool, Snooker, Table Tennis and various electronic games like PS3 and Xbox 360. We have a huge bouncy castle for the younger ones, and we have lunch together. Many of our young people stay after church to join in the activities at the club. We also hold a more traditional mid-week service at 11:00 am on Wednesday.
