of God known and to share the Good News of the Gospel through worship and
witness and through the work the members do within their local communities.
Circuit Leadership Team, ministers and lay representatives are jointly
responsible for overseeing the life and work of the Methodist churches under
the team ministry.
In Forest Circuit we have twelve churches across the London
Borough of Waltham Forest, Wanstead and Loughton.
The churches in Forest
Circuit exist to proclaim the Gospel of Christ by helping people to find and follow Jesus in an ever-changing world.
Our aim is to be a Christ-centred welcoming Circuit, reaching out to the
community, encouraging followers of Christ and demonstrating God’s love in such
a way that others cannot ignore it.
In Forest Methodist
Circuit through the hiring out of our premises we aim to help create a sense of
community in the neighbourhoods where people live and work. We hope that an
increased sense of community will lead to more personal involvement and more
cultural, educational and social activities, which will create a better
community and a better place for us to live: communities where the presence of
God can more clearly be seen.

Leo Cheng works as an Oral maxillo-facial surgeon for the NHS and amongst his other talents he is a Local Preacher in the Methodist Church. Every year since 2003 he has given up two weeks of his annual holiday to work for Mercy Ships. This is an international organisation which staffs a floating hospital of mainly volunteers which travels throughout the world, giving free medical care to all those in need. Often his wife Rev Hilary Cheng goes with him on the Mercy Ship as she gives her time as a chaplain.
There is a TV series about Mercy Ships airing on Channel TBN UK, which is Freeview channel no. 65 and Sky channel no. 582. The series features an interview with Leo where you can hear about some of the facial operations he carries out, for people who could never afford to pay for the treatment.
