Worship Services at Quinton Methodist Church
We come together for worship at many times and in many ways at Quinton Methodist Church.
Our services range from our regular 11am Sunday Service to our periodic Breakfast Church and the more intimate early morning Communion and Sunday Evening Services. We hold a monthly Family Service and there is a children's area in the main church with toys and books for youngsters to enjoy during services. We also hold services in the community for those who find it difficult to get to a Church service. Please read on for details of our services.
The Church is fortunate to be home to a talented music group who provide lively contemporary accompaniment at selected services. Such is their renown that they are regularly called upon to play at other churches in the area.
Our main Sunday Service takes place at 11am and follows a broadly traditional format with a family focussed service once a month. There is also a monthly early morning Communion Service at 8.30am - usually on the first Sunday. Our Evening Services commence at 6.30pm although in some seasons we share and rotate these with other churches in the locality. Evening Services at Quinton then take place on alternate Sundays – details can be found on the calendar. Tea and coffee are served after morning and evening service allowing time for continued fellowship.
Service times may vary during the Easter and Christmas seasons and also when other special arrangements have been made so you are advised to refer to the calendar for full details.
This is an 11am service usually held on the second Sunday of the month and is specially designed for families and those with younger children. [is the reference to younger children still correct?]
At around 50 minutes the Family Service is a little shorter than a regular service and includes themes appropriate to younger people. This allows them, along with members of the Boys' Brigade and Girls' Brigade, an opportunity to take an active part in the service with readings, role-play and other activities.
The Church provides plenty of activities for young people and more information about these can be found on our Activities for Young People pages.
Suitable for all ages, Breakfast Church takes place at 9.30am on the fifth Sunday of months with five Sundays. The emphasis is on informality with porridge, cereal, toast and tasty bacon baps and drinks served in the Parlour. The worship element is deliberately very accessible, often consisting of a short thought-provoking film or computer presentation followed by a short discussion or activity and a prayer.
Pause for Prayer
Held on the second Tuesday of each month in the Parlour from 7.45pm to 8.30pm, these sessions provide a relaxed time of sharing, contemplation and prayer.
Worship Services in the Community
Our Church does not end at its walls. A recent initiative has seen us take our services into places such as care homes to those for whom it is not possible to come to us. The worship is specially tailored to accommodate the needs of those we visit and is usually half an hour in length - long enough to enjoy without becoming taxing. We have also devised a series of dementia-friendly services. To learn more about our services in the community please contact us in confidence via the contact us page.
