Worship and Prayer

 

 Dore Methodist Church holds a weekly service on Sundays at 10.30, and Holy Communion is included in this morning service once a month. All are welcome to join us for any of these services.

After Sunday morning services many people extend the time of fellowship by going through for a coffee in the church hall. Visitors are welcome.
