Local preachers, all of whom all have a different approach, lead our other Services. This allows for some very interesting sermons and a vast variety of hymns.
The Congregation at South Road are very friendly and everyone is made welcome.
We have a community room attached to our Church for people living in the village and surrounding area which you can book anytime through the Secretary.
Our Open Doors coffee morning is held, between 9.15 and 12 noon every Wednesday to enjoy home made Cakes, donated by our Congregation. Newspapers, magazines, jigsaws, scrabble and various other board games are all available to use. A vast selection of books can be borrowed and returned at your leisure. The mornings are well attended and there is always a lot of laughter. There is no charge but guests very kindly give donations, which after deductions for heating and electricity, are passed on to the Genesis Trust in Bath.
Food for Thought
Martin also leads this meeting where topics relating to Christianity in our modern world are discussed. These take place in the schoolroom on the last Thursday of each month, from 12.00 until 2.00pm. All are welcome; just bring a packed lunch and an inquiring mind.
We support local, national and international Charities especially The Genesis Trust, Lincoln Street Methodist Centre, Bibles For Children and Tools For Self Reliance.
The Genesis Trust supports people in need in the Bath area. Their objective is to gradually help people to move forward to a lifestyle that is independent, secure and satisfying. Help is given in five main ways. Food & drink, home making, personal help, spiritual help and assistance in returning to work.
We support the Methodist Centre, Lincoln Street, Bristol giving food, clothing and personal items to help people who have fallen on hard times, often through no fault of their own, get back on their feet.
We very proudly support the Bibles For Children charity. Its founder, Mr Ted Hudson, being a member of our congregation along with two of the Trustee Members, Mr Geoff Smith and Mr John Haywood. The Charity started in 1996 and, by the end of July 2017, 500,000 children at 2,000 schools will have received Bibles. We continue to help raise funds for this wonderful project.
Tools For Self Reliance is an international charity. Volunteers refurbish used tools and sewing machines which are then sent abroad for use in village development groups to enable the people living there to be self sufficient. We are the local collecting point and are pleased to receive your used and unwanted tools for donation to this very worthy cause. The collection point is at our Church; it is open on Wednesday mornings.
