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).

All events are advertised in the Church Newsletter which is published monthly and circulated as widely as possible.

Youngsters are welcomed and encouraged.  Especially for them is ‘The Lighthouse Gang’ for tens and unders, which meet on Sunday mornings.

The church enjoys a very close relationship with the Parish Church.

The church has Powerpoint and digital projection facilities.
