Other Online Services

Live-streamed services are available from various Methodist Churches around the country including Wesley’s Chapel, London, Swan Bank, Burslem and Methodist Central Hall, Westminster. Please see the Calendar page for listings and times. Some churches also provide live prayers at other times during the week.

Live-streamed services are usually available to be viewed afterwards. As recording starts some minutes in advance of worship it is usually necessary to fast-forward to find the start of the service.

Worship at Home Sheet

Each week the Methodist Church is producing a short act of worship to enable you to worship at home. There are live links in the PDF document to short performances on YouTube. There is also a large print version of the service.

Messages, Reflections & Prayers

At this difficult time our Minister, Rev Ajay Singh, and other ministers from the circuit have prepared some special messages, reflections and prayers which you will find on the Messages, Reflections & Prayers page.

As only limited Sunday morning services are operating since re-opening the details below are provided for information only.

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 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.

Sunday Services

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 page. 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 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.

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.

Breakfast Church

Suitable for all ages, Breakfast Church takes place at 9.30am on the fifth Sunday of those 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 brief 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.
