Worship at Church

Market Drayton Methodist Church is at the heart of the community

Overwhelmed by the gift of the love of Jesus, we have a heart for authentic worship, we are passionate about our local community, and we are on mission to see God’s Kingdom established across the earth.

Update 05/03/21 – MDMC will be holding in-person services once again from Sunday 28th March (Palm Sunday). These will be held on Sundays at 10.30am and booking is required for each household. There will continue to be an online offering which can be viewed via the homepage or our Circuit YouTube channel.

Update 08/01/21 – MDMC has made the decision to close for communal worship during this current lockdown period. We will be keeping a very close eye on the situation, and will reopen as soon as it feels appropriate to do so.


COVID-19 – re-opening the building and online services


We are very happy to announce that we are going to be holding in-person Sunday services once again from 28th March (Palm Sunday). They will be weekly at 10.30am and will for the current time require booking via our calendar page. We will continue to live-stream an act of worship every Sunday morning at 10.30am which you can watch below, or on our YouTube channel.

During this period of Lent, there are numerous ways in which you can either lay something down or start something new. Take a look at the various resources.


As we heard from James on 31st January, please find below the various ways that you can find out more about how to sponsor a child and some of the children waiting for sponsors. (Click first image below to go to the compassion site to sponsor a child.)

Upcoming Events

We are committed to being involved in and serving the community in and around Market Drayton. Here’s some things you might be interested in…



This year’s Presidential theme asks “What’s the story?” Thinking about God’s story and how it connects with our own story. So – at MDMC we’ve been asking “What’s YOUR story?”

We’ve challenged members of the congregation to share some of how their story meets with God’s story in 3 minutes!

Community is at the centre of MDMC, whether it’s our own church community or the wider community.

Coffe At Church

Loving Our Community

MDMC is a place where all ages meet together to worship God. Our hope is that we might grow together as a big family where we can be honest and open with one another as we all learn to follow Jesus. We support one another in small groups called ‘Life Groups’ and do our best to ensure that everyone who we meet knows themselves to be loved.

Spreading God’s Love In Our Community

We love to be involved in town events, such as the MD10k, Festival of Lights and the Festival of Transport which are great opportunities for us to get to know the town. For those who want to know more about the Christian faith, we run an Alpha Course in Costa. For children and young people, we also run midweek clubs.

The Wider Community

As a member of Churches Together in Market Drayton, we are committed to helping those who are in need. We do this by running and supporting a Foodbank, CAP debt advice service, a Job Club and a Release Group (supporting those with addictions). MDMC also hosts and often runs several community groups.

Building Community

In our church and out into the world.


We welcome visitors and would love to have you join us in one of our church services.

We have a service every Sunday at 10.30am where we meet together to worship God. Music is a big thing at MDMC, with our songs being led by a band, or the organ, but always with a deep love of Jesus! Junior Church also meets every Sunday, except for when we are ‘All In’ together, once a month. Please see the ‘Worship’ page to find out more about our different services.
