MICKLETON METHODIST CHURCH :
We believe in Faith in Action
The roots of Mickleton Methodist Church go back to 1812, but the foundation stones of the existing chapel were not laid until 1891. At that time the Society had only 14 members — much the same as the congregation today — though in between times numbers rose to more than 50 with a Sunday School of more than 30 children.
Today, we do all we can to keep the church alive. A lively Church Fellowship meets on Thursday afternoons, and we host 'Open House' — a Bible-based interdenominational discussion group — every month.
Despite our small numbers, we have recently achieved a Silver Eco Church Award for our active concern for creation.
We have also converted the large lawn at the rear of the church into a community wildlife garden. We leafleted the entire village — almost 1,000 houses — and volunteers and church members worked together to raise the necessary funding. Now the garden attracts an increasing number of visitors from church and community for picnics, relaxation and recreation.
We look forward to sharing ideas, listening to new preachers, and making new friends as we journey forward together in the new circuit.
Mickleton have also launched a new Messy Church on the first Sunday of each month — see here for details
