Chadlington Methodist Church

Methodist Church Sign

Methodist Church

Chadlington Methodist Church is situated in the heart of the village between Chadlington Quality Foods and Cafe de la Post, and has a small, but friendly and enthusiastic congregation. The Church is quite active in the village, with a monthly Coffee Morning, twice monthly intercessory prayer meetings, a monthly Julian meeting, and a Quiet Morning held twice a year.

The Church has strong ecumenical ties with the Anglican Church in Chadlington and have twice yearly meetings to discuss what is happening both within the churches and the village as well as sharing in Lent and Advent Bible study.

Due to our central location and the availability of an adjoining school room the Church is an ideal venue for all sorts of social, cultural and spiritual activities. The whole building has very good disabled access. The Church hosts Annual Art Week displays and occasional concerts, raising funds for the Church and local charities.

The Church Building

Methodist Church

The building itself is a large one by small village standards and was built in 1903 within its own grounds. It replaced a ‘Tin Tabernacle’ in Horseshoe lane and was at the time proportioned to accommodate the children from National Children’s Home, a Methodist Foundation, which at that time was using two houses in Chadlington, one for girls at ‘College Farmhouse’ and the other for boys at ‘Ivy Dene’ (now the ‘Gray House’) all of whom worshipped here. The main Church takes up the major part of the building; there is also a kitchen, vestry,  and toilets including access for the disabled.

The schoolroom is available for hire by outside groups.

Our Services

The usual services, which take the traditional form, are held in the evenings at 6pm but on the third Sunday of the month a ‘Café Church’ is held at 4pm, which is for all ages and presented in a friendly and informal way. The congregation usually share tea and coffee and a chat at the conclusion of the evening services. Most services are held in the schoolroom where they can be less formal.

Other Activities

  • We hold a monthly Coffee Morning on the fourth Saturday of the month for the community and provide us with much needed funds. Some of these are in aid of a charity.
  • We hold a monthly Soup Lunch from 12 noon on the second Thursday of the month donations from which are given to Charities such as WaterAid.
  • A Prayer Intercessory Fellowship group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month in the morning from 11 to 12. This group are prayer partners with Ashfield Youth Offenders Institution.
  • Quiet mornings are held twice a year one in March and the other in September. This provides a time of peace and exploration and is open to anyone.

The Church warmly invite you to our Sunday services or any other activities.
