Find Out More About Who We Are.
We are a Methodist church though have a membership made up of people from various traditions who feel quite at home in our lively worship and family orientated ethos. We hope that all will feel themselves welcome whether meeting with us for the first or the one hundredth time.
Our motto correctly reveals our evangelical emphasis, on living out the preaching of the gospel with Christ at the centre. We look to the Holy Spirit to be at work in us and through us.
In worship we try to be open to the leading and expression of the Holy Spirit. Regular prayer and ministry are offered as we believe the Holy Spirit is present to heal, help, and renew us. Each member is a minister of his grace and is encouraged to use the gifts given by the Spirit to encourage the whole body.
Worship is a mix of traditional and contemporary music ministry led by a team of people including the Worship Leader, Organist, Worship Band, Minister and Local Preachers. Music plays a big part of our worshipping life with a gifted group of musicians and song writers, as well as The North Shropshire Methodist Youth Choir who occasionally take part in worship, and regularly visit other churches to lead worship.
Weekly activities cater for all ages from the very youngest to the oldest including care and support groups for visually impaired, and stroke victims. A full time children and youth worker leads the youth ministry to our own young people and in outreach to young people in the town.
Our vision looks outward to the world in our Romania Link Project where support is given to vulnerable people in Central Romania through our links with the church there. We support the work of Compassion through child sponsorship around the world, and we support those in need in our local community through Foodbank and a variety of CAP (Christians Against Poverty) groups which are run along with the other churches in the town.
We believe that the only hope for the nation and the world is Christ. Therefore we proclaim Christ crucified, risen, and ascended, Lord of all.
