South Warwickshire Circuit
Introducing Wellesbourne Methodist Church
Wellesbourne is at the centre of both the existing Circuit and our new Circuit, so is soon to be the home of the Circuit Office. Most Circuit Meetings are now taking place here.
We celebrated the centenary of the building in 2016. The church had a major refurbishment and update in 1988 and in 2015 the church was redecorated and pews were replaced with chairs. Our Sunday congregation averages 25 and we have a number of regular activities during the week including: Little Stars (for pre-school children and their minders), Fellowship Café, Craft and Cake, a Lunch Club (organised by VASA) and a popular weekly Saturday Coffee morning — sometimes serving bacon butties!
The Ten2 meetings held to consider our church's future as part of the Circuit Review were well supported, culminating in a monthly "Moving Forward Together" meeting. The initial focus for this is the opportunity presented by the recent opening of the village's new medical centre directly across the road from the church. We hope to provide refreshments and a meeting place for those visiting the medical centre soon and we are also considering longer term developments.
The premises are also used by a number of community groups during the week.
