Our gathering takes place this year on Saturday 13th October 2018

from 11.30am to 4pm


BRITAIN'S ONLY HOPE - THE GOSPEL is the name of an annual conference at Penn Free Methodist Church held each Autumn, which focuses on national righteousness and the need for Britain to return to the one true faith of Jesus Christ as its only hope for economic, political and social stability and general well-being. The Christian gospel gives ‘salt’ to a nation, having a gradually permeating effect which is wholesome and purifying. It is this alone which makes a society a good place in which to live. 


Nations do not improve by constantly pouring government money (which has to be found somewhere) into housing, education and health services. A nation improves as the gospel changes the hearts of the sinners who live in that nation. God’s word accordingly declares, 


“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people”

(Proverbs 14:34). 

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord”

(Psalms 33:12). 


Under the ‘Britain’s only Hope - the Gospel’  banner we have a dedicated Facebook page which reports on the evangelistic endeavours carried out by our church and/or its pastor.


We also produce publications which directly impinge upon the issue of national righteousness. 


Whilst we have no intention of getting involved in political issues, we feel that the need for Britain to leave the European Union is an issue which overrides mere politics, being rather a matter of maintaining the God-ordained institution of nationhood, which has been in place ever since the time of the Tower of Babel rebellion against God’s authority (see, for example, Genesis 11:9, Deuteronomy 32:8 and Acts 17:26). 


Scripture plainly teaches that God judges nations as nations. Every nation upon earth is individually answerable to the Trinitarian God for the laws which it passes and how its citizens behave. We feel therefore that we must strongly resist the secular political correctness (also known as cultural Marxism) which is promoted by most politicians of every hue (even ‘conservative’ ones), and which has also been embraced by numerous churches as a substitute for the true gospel. 


This political correctness prevailing in British life teaches that there is something immoral about a nation governing itself, controlling its own borders, and having a distinctive Christian identity and culture. We endeavour to resist these tendencies by preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified for sinners, by upholding the principles of God’s never-changing  moral law, and by telling people that nationhood under God is good and wholesome, and that each nation is answerable to God for how it conducts itself.   


Of course as Christians we constantly rejoice in the fact that the kingdom of God is made up of people of every tribe and tongue, but this vital truth in no way demands that is wrong or ‘un-Christian’ to have a particular burden for one’s own people, as Romans 9:1-3 makes abundantly clear. 


We also feel it essential to remind people of the glorious Christian inheritance which Britain possesses, especially constitutionally, by means of the 1688 Coronation Oath Act, whereby the monarch promises to maintain to the utmost of her power the laws of God, the true profession of the gospel and the Protestant Reformed religion established by law.


Admission is free, and a warm welcome is extended to all.
