Sunday services

Stained glass window

We are delighted to welcome you to back into the church for face-to-face worship.  Our next service is on Sunday, 27 September, 2020, at 10.30am and will be led by Reverend Geoffrey Farrar.  Services will continue at the same time every week thereafter.

Our Circuit of churches will continue to offer a recorded service for you to join in with at home via its Youtube channel (see below).


Who can come? Anyone is welcome to attend our services. They are public acts of worship, and not just for 'experienced Christians'. There is no need to dress up or even to know anything about the church or Christianity. You will be welcomed just as you are, and you will not be asked to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.

What to expect? Our services nearly always include prayers, singing, readings from the Bible and a talk. Sometimes our services are led by our minister and sometimes by local people, who have been trained for this role. On the first Sunday of the month, we usually celebrate Holy Communion. This is a special service where we remember the Last Supper that Jesus had with his disciples shortly before he was crucified. We eat bread and drink grape juice together to remember his sacrifice. In the Methodist Church, anyone may join in this service in full - you do not need to be confirmed or be a member of the church. However, if you do not wish to take part, no one will make you do so.

Our evening services generally have a smaller congregation and are often more contemplative in nature.
