Bible Study courses are held during Lent and at other times of the year.  On occasional Friday evenings the church hosts and serves a meal.  The atmosphere is warm, intimate and there is always a post-dinner speech or presentation.  Other social events such as Quizzes, Barbecues and Strawberry Teas give more oppurtunity for outreach as well as fundraising.

Rooms are available for hire at Old Newton Methodist Church.  Bookings can be made via the website (see link below).

New - Bible Study!

Talking Jesus sessions grandeFrom September, our minister Rita and husband Francis are offering to run a new Bible Study course once a month.  This will be held on the 4th Monday of the month at the Manse at 7:30pm.

We are offering this for anyone with work or other commitments who are unable to attend a daytime Bible Study session.

The study we shall follow is the Circuit initiative "Talking Jesus", which we hope all study groups will use in September.


Please contact Francis or Rita if you would like to attend.
