Dogsthorpe Methodist Church 

About our Worship

We are always pleased to welcome visitors to Dogsthorpe Methodist Church. Please stay to chat over tea or coffee after the service. There are also people who can talk and pray with you for any need in a sensitive and personal environment.

 

Methodist worship is very varied, but you will always find singing of hymns and songs (old and new), readings from the Bible in a modern easily understood translation, heartfelt prayers which relate to what is going on in the world, and reflections on how the message of Jesus is relevant to life today.

 

Sunday Worship

  • 10.30am Morning Worship & Funday Club: The children join with the main congregation at the start of worship (unless worship includes Holy Communion) then return towards the end of worship. Funday Club does not take place during school holidays when our morning worship is suitable for All Ages.

 Friday Evening Worship

Meeting Every on the 3rd Friday each month at 8.00, we hold a service of prayer, meditation and healing.

The worship itself takes many forms from discussion, praise, movement, music, meditations, writing and so on which is helpful for developing a personal way of worshipping. It is an opportunity to bring concerns for prayer and to spend time moving closely into God's presence.


Funday Club

For ages 4 - 12 meets each Sunday during school term time from 10.30am. to 11.30am. Funday Club is open to all - just come along and join in!

We have 'FUN' learning about God and Jesus and how they are important to our lives today. We use modern songs from Christian CDs, watch videos, and do acting, craft work, cooking and play games to learn of God's love for us. We sometimes join in worship in the main church, but mainly stay in our own part of the church building.

Our main leaders are church trained children's workers and are approved by the Methodist Church to work with children. We also run holiday Kid's Clubs - look out for the publicity distributed through the local schools.


Holy Communion (HC)

In Holy Communion we remember the Last Supper and the last words that Jesus said to his disciples before he was taken away to be crucified. At Dogsthorpe there is a Holy Communion Service at least once a month.


Tea and Chat 

Meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 2pm to 3pm It is a good place to relax in the company of others, especially if you are feeling lonely.
