    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.









     

    CHURCH UPDATE:

    In light of our new National Lockdown we have taken the decision to close our church building for communal worship until at least the end of January 2021. We believe this is an expression of love and concern for our members and our wider community as we seek to protect peoples’ health and wellbeing. This does not mean that the work of the church has stopped nor that we cannot find ways of expressing and receiving the love of God. We are concerned to support our community at this difficult time so if you need someone to talk to or you wish to share a prayer request, or you would like a resource to help you worship at home, or you need some sort of practical help, please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Cornerstone Community Cafe is offering a takeaway and delivery service.  Please visit the Cornerstone page for details of our Christmas opening hours.

    CORNERSTONE:  We are so grateful to all our lovely customers and volunteers who have supported us since reopening and coped with the everchanging conditions under which we are having to operate.  We extend special thanks to the voluteers who willingly worked over the Christmas period to keep Cornerstone open and are looking forward to seeing you all in 2021.


    Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Toy Appeal for Bradford Refugee Action.  We took a full car load of toys and games which will go to some of the 150 families they are helping to settle in the UK.  Some additional toys which arrived after the deadline have been donated to the CAP Debt Centre to help some of the families who are struggling financially at this time.  Your generosity is everything.


     

    ECO CHURCH:  We are delighted that we have just been awarded Bronze Eco Church status in recognition of our efforts to care for God's Earth through Worship, Teaching, Management of Buildings and Land, Community & Global Engagement, and Lifestyle.


    FOOD CONTRIBUTIONS NEEDED:  Ilkley & Otley Foodbanks are co-operating during the Covid-19 emergency and sharing supplies.  The nearest drop-off is the Co-op in Burley or any major local supermarket. Alternatively, donations can be dropped off at Cornerstone Cafe during opening hours. Financial donations can be made to Leeds North and West Foodbank. Cheques made payable to Leeds North & West Foodbank and sent to LN&WFB, 62a Burley Road, Leeds LS3 1JX or online donations to: Unity Trust Bank PLC - Account no. 20357911 - Sort Code 60-83-01. 


    FAIRTRADE:  We are delighted that our status as a Fairtrade Church has been renewed.


    REQUEST FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS:  St Vincent's are wanting for books for 0-5 year olds.  This is for a new group being set up to support parents/carers in reading to their children, particularly where the parent or carer is not a confident reader themselves.  Please drop off at 133 Main Street or bring to church for Charlotte.


    REFILLCornerstone has signed up to this national scheme whereby anyone can pop into Cornerstone during opening hours and have a water bottle refilled for free.  The Pantry in Main Street is also part of this scheme.  Download the App.


    UNWANTED JEWELLERY:  Any unwanted jewellery (including broken and costume jewellery) can now be gifted to raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society.  Charlotte has envelopes available for any donations.


    RECYCLING:  Used inkjet cartridges can be donated to the British Red Cross - donation box on window sill just inside the Church side door.
