Worship Services

We come together for worship at many times and in many ways at Quinton Methodist Church.

Our services range from our regular 11am Sunday Worship to fortnightly Evening Worship and our periodic Pre-Church and Breakfast Church meetings.

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.

Our 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.

Sunday Services

Our main act of worship takes place weekly at 11am and follows a broadly traditional format with a family-focussed service once a month. On some Sundays an informal Pre-Church gathering takes place in the Peace Garden at 10.30am. Evening Worship is held monthly and commences at 6.30pm. Tea and coffee are served after worship.

Upcoming services are listed on the Calendar page.

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 page for full details.

Family Service

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.

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.

Breakfast Church

Suitable for all ages, Breakfast Church takes place periodically on a Sunday at 9.30am with a breakfast of porridge, cereal, toast, bacon baps and drinks served in the parlour. The emphasis is on informality with the worship element very accessible, often consisting of a short thought-provoking film or computer presentation followed by a brief discussion or activity and a prayer.

Pause for Prayer

These evening sessions provide a relaxed time of sharing, contemplation and prayer. They are usually held monthly on a Tuesday at 7.45pm in the parlour and last approximately 45 minutes. Dates of meetings can be found on the Calendar page.

Worship Services in the Community

Our Church does not end at its walls. Prior to the pandemic an initiative saw us take our services into places such as care homes to those for whom it is not possible to come to us. We hope to recommence as soon as it is feasible and safe so to do.

These services are tailored to accommodate the needs of those we visit and are about half an hour in duration. We find this is long enough for those we visit 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.

Online Offertory now available

It is now possible to donate to QMC online. The portal has been established with Give A Little who supply digital fund-raising solutions to many charities and also provide the contactless payment system used at Church.

Online Worship

A variety of live-streamed services have been established to allow those unable to attend church to enjoy and take part in worship.
