  • Service of the Word

    One of the preachers, lay or ordained, from the Methodist Circuit leads a service in the Methodist tradition. As this tradition gives considerable freedom to the person appointed to lead, we cannot be too specific, but usually there are hymns, prayers and a sermon or other kind of message.

  • Messy Church

    An afternoon of craft activity for all ages, ending with a brief message or song, and followed by tea. (Currently this is mainly attended by primary school aged and pre-school children with their parents/carers, but it could be developed if other age groups started to attend.)
