The Chapel in Main
Street was built 156 years ago in 1854 and, following the Methodist
Union in 1932, became the chosen place for Methodist worship in the
village. Alterations were carried out in 1973 and in 2000 to improve
the facilities, including access and toilet for the less able, to
provide a fitting place for worship and community activities.
The chapel is one of
eighteen similar meeting places in the Grantham and Vale of Belvoir
Methodist Circuit 22/15 within the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire
Sunday Worship is held every week at 10.00am, with Holy Communion, open to all, being celebrated on the third Sunday in every month. We have a close relationship with our Anglican friends. We support each other at special services and festivals. We also share a Children, Young People and Families Worker who is responsible for organising Messy Church which is held at the Methodist Church on the second Tuesday of most months. This lively event is attended by about 20 children and their parents and is supported by members from both Churches.
Ecumenical structured bible study (searching the scriptures) is held every Monday at 7.30 pm in the Upper Room of the Church and on Wednesday at 2.30 pm in the home of one of the members.
Our Minister, Rev. Martin Smithson, is resident in Bingham. He has oversight of two other Churches within a larger group of twelve. These form the Grantham and Vale of Belvoir Circuit which is under his supervision as our Superintendent Minister. Our circuit, one of sixteen, constitute the Nottingham and Derby District of The Methodist Church led by our Chair, Rev. Loraine Mellor.
The stewards, on behalf of the members and congregation, extend a very warm welcome to you to join us in any of our activities. If you would welcome a visit to your home or would like to know more about our Church and our work in the community and the wider world, do not hesitate to contact any one of us; we would be pleased to hear from you.
We would like to invite you to join us at our Coffee morning, usually held at 10.00 am on the first Saturday in each month. We look forward to meeting you there.
