Circuit Noticeboard

Superintendent's weekly letter

Crossgates Methodist Church is in the heart of the local community. This central location allows us to open our doors to local people not just on Sundays, but every day of the week. Coffee mornings, Wednesday at Eight, Scouting and Guiding meetings are just some of the ways in which the church facility is used and enjoyed. There is something for everyone, young or old.

The current church was opened in 1882 and with about 85 people worshipping here each week, it's a friendly place that welcomes all ages to worship. Several Junior Church departments and a crèche run each week, in order to enable children of all ages to access the word of God in creative ways.
