Who We Are
Situated at the centre of the town of Plympton, on the outskirts of the city of Plymouth, Ridgeway Methodist Church is an active, growing, Bible-based church with a welcome for all ages and a heart for it's community.
Jesus asks us to love God and to love each other – this call to love needs to form the basis of every aspect of our lives as believers. Wherever God leads us we will journey together, keeping Jesus at the centre.
