The adjoining hall acts as a focus for a wide range of activities in which the church serves the village community. On the first, third and fifth Tuesdays in the month there is a well attended ‘Pause for Prayer’ session at 10.15am followed by a Coffee Morning. On the first Tuesday of the month there is a lunch from 12.15 to 1.30pm.
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.

New - Bible Study!
From 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.
Our next session will be on Monday 28th October and then Monday 25th November.
Please contact Francis or Rita if you would like to attend.
