|'Loving God and Loving our Neighbours'|
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.
Following Government guidelines we regret that all Church services and meetings on our premises are suspended until further notice. In order to keep our community safe, the Church will not be open for private prayer. Let us remember in this difficult time that God is present in all places at all times.
Cornerstone is also closed.

A Booklet of Reflections for use during Holy Week compiled by Rev Tim Perkins, Deacon Liz Day and Assistant Pastor Wendy Walker.
Good Friday Reflections: Although the service reflecting on the final sayings of Jesus did not take place at St John's this year, those involved have kindly provided us with a copy of their reflections for us to read at home. These were written by congregation members and clergy from St John's and Menston Methodist Church.

SOUL TRAINING EXERCISES:
Just as during this time of social distancing and self-isolation we are encouraged to find ways of continuing to do physical exercise, so it is important for our spiritual health for us to find ways to train our souls. Soul-training exercises are simple exercises that we can practice in order to enable us to become more aware of how God is at work within us and the world. The exercises included in this section are taken from two books by James Bryan Smith, “The Good and Beautiful God” and “The Good and Beautiful Life”. They may need to be adapted slightly in some instances to take account of our current context. However, simply taking one exercise a week and practicing it as often as you are able to will help you to know more of God’s peace and grace in your life.
THE METHODIST WAY OF LIFE:
We have recently been considering as a church/circuit how we might use the Methodist Way of Life resource in our small groups. Perhaps now provides an opportunity for you to remind yourself of it each day and to reflect upon one of the questions.
