There has been a Methodist Chapel on this site for two hundred and fifteen years.
We have thirty four members. Our Church is now in the old Sunday School building, pleasant and up to date with new facilities for the disabled, including ramps and baby changing facilities. Rooms are hired out whenever possible.
Our monthly coffee mornings, and Summer and Christmas Fayres, are popular in the village attracting people who do not otherwise attend Chapel.
Sunday School is on Sunday mornings whilst the Church service Is in progress and we have family services once a month. We have a fluctuating number of children, ages two to eleven. A bowling party at the American air base is much enjoyed by all, as is the Church picnic after the Sunday School Anniversary. The Sunday School arranges beetle drives to raise money for themselves and for charity. These too are popular in the village.
Wesley Guild is thriving and runs from October to Easter.
We support a child in Lebanon, and also give to Methodist and other charities, also to emergency appeals
Members visit the nursing home in the village, to take services, and we join in other circuit services and social events.
We join with Hampsthwaite Chapel for Bible Study evenings, and Sunday evening services, alternating the venue.
We combine with the local Parish Church for the Remembrance Day service and for Women’s World day of Prayer. We hold a monthly prayer meeting.
Together with God’s help we will keep the Christian faith alive in the village for future generations.
