Welcome to Belfairs Methodist Church.

 "Where old friends meet and strangers feel at home.


                                             Pastor Steve Mayo

I was born into a Salvation Army family at that time living in Bournemouth in Dorset, and this remained my denomination for some 48 years, of which the last 16 years was spent as an ordained Salvation Army Officer (minister). I led churches in both South Wales and London during that time.

Before becoming a Salvation Army Officer, I completed a 4-year apprenticeship in mechanical and production engineering, becoming a fully skilled manual miller, which involved machining parts for aircraft/helicopter/oil rigs etc.

In 2017, I came into the Methodist Church as a lay Pastor/Preacher and have had pastoral responsibility for a number of churches in the Southend and Leigh circuit.

In 2018, I strongly felt God calling me into presbyterial ministry (Minister with the Methodist church), and I started the candidating process. I am now a 3rd year student presbyter studying part-time at the Queen’s Foundation College.

My wife Dani and I, have been married for 31 years and we have 3 daughters, Shannon (27), Megan (25) and Ellie (20).

I enjoy brass bands and have played a brass instrument since I was 7 years old. I currently play in Southend Band on bass trombone. We rescue caged hens and enjoy watching them enjoy their retirement!
