Our Worship

Our weekly act of worship is on Sundays at 10-30 a.m.

Our style of worship is mainly traditional and is usually led by a Methodist Minister or a Local Preacher.

We enjoy singing led by an organ and we use "Singing the Faith" as our hymnbook.

Usually once a month we celebrate Holy Communion and for this we use gluten free bread and non alcoholic wine.

Our services usually last about an hour and afterwards there is the opportunity for further fellowship over a cup of tea/coffee in our hall.

We look forward to welcoming you at one of our services in the near future.




Midweek Holy Communion Services

Thursdays at 10-30 a.m.

Whilst major refurbishment work is carried out at Christ Church, Dore, our friends from that church will be using our church for their Thursday reflective Holy Communion Services. The services will be led, alternatively, by Rev Andy Patrick and Rev Di Williams. These services are open to all and we look forward to welcoming new comers.

Please use the front door on High Street for the service. As there are other groups meeting in our hall at the same time parking may not be possible in our car park.

Morning Prayer

Monday to Wednesday during term-time.

9-00 a.m. to 9-30 a.m.

Starting on Monday 10th June, friends from Church Church will be organising these short prayer sessions in our church. Everyone is welcome to attend. Again, please use the front door on High Street.

Help for Ukraine - we support a local group "Helping our Ukrainian Friends". In particular we have a supply of greetings cards made by a local artist available for purchase.

The group recently undertook their 12th delivery of aid to communities impacted by the invasion, and we  responded to an appeal for warm clothes and medical supplies, which formed part of their delivery.

Keeping in touch

We usually produce a "Weekly Update" of news and details of our activities and circulate this to most of our members by email. For those who do not have an email address , and for visitors, we produce a limited number of paper copies, available from our vestibule.


With the copies sent out by email we also include a copy of "The Vine Worship at Home Material". This also includes prayer points for each day of the coming week.
