Further information
Longevity and consistency are perhaps the two words that most adequately describe Essington Wood, that since its foundation in 1834 it has maintained a membership of around 30 country dwellers who may have their origin in a house-group set up by John Wesley himself who was known to have connections at Bentley and Hilton and may have passed through the present village of Essington which lies just 2 miles away from J 11 of M6.The original building was set up on a generous sized piece of land, possibly donated by a local farmer, and took a major step forward in 1883 when the original round structure was replaced by a larger building fronting Bursnips Road and containing a worship centre and school room.  A smaller Sunday School room and a fairly primitive kitchen was added in the 1920’s and served the neighbourhood well until 1978 when the present building was completed with a worship centre seating up to 60 people, a hall that will accommodate a further 150 people and the ‘Alec Room’ (an all-purpose addition in memory  of Alec Birch who gave a lifetime of service covering most of the twentieth century). 
Sunday Worship is now held at 10.30am and witness has been strengthened in the last few years by the influx of several members of the other Essington Methodist Church, Allens Rough, which closed in 2005 after serving their part of the neighbourhood since 1906.
Following the closure of New Invention Methodist Church in 2015, the majority of the members also joined Essington Wood
