    'Caring for all God's people through faith in Jesus Christ'

    Welcome to the website of Menston Methodist Church.

    If you live in Menston or nearby, are new to church or just browsing, we hope you will find the information you are looking for.   If you don’t, please use the contact form and we will respond to your query as soon as possible.

    Our calling is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ, to live out our discipleship in worship and mission and to offer care and compassion to all God's people, locally and globally, through the power of God's Spirit.

    There are many activities taking place within our Church, but the best way to meet us is to come to our main Sunday morning service at 10:30am.  All are very welcome, whatever your age or background.

    You will find us on Main Street in the middle of Menston.  We are easy to find, almost opposite the Malt Shovel pub!  There is a small carpark to the right hand side of the Church.  The building is wheelchair accessible.

    Our community café, Cornerstone immediately adjoins the main Church building.
