Welcome to

Melbourne Methodist Church


We are now re-open for Sunday Morning Worship, but under strict Covid19 Regulations

To enable the maximum number of people to attend we are setting out chairs to comply with the one metre guidelines. You will need to book your seat in advance, no later than 5pm on Friday

The telephone number to ring is 07434 660316

Please leave a message giving your name, telephone contact and the number in your family coming - and please make it clear if you are UNABLE to wear a mask.

If you DO NOT hear from us your seat will be reserved.




If you have just moved to the area, or perhaps are visiting this part of the country and are looking for a place to worship we would like to assure you a warm welcome to our big church family!


Over the last 20 years our church has grown from a regular congregation of about 20 to over 80 - including a wonderful youth church.  Our usual Family Friendly Worship each Sunday at 10.30 is informal and is led by our own worship group overseen by our minister Rev John Hartley or, alternatively, by a local lay preacher. If you fancy paying us a visit, but are unsure what to expect, see the 'Never been to Church' link below.
