Carrville is a warm and welcoming church with a lively congregation. Worship is at the centre of the life of any church and so it is with Carrville. Each Sunday we gather in church to worship God, to listen to His word and to seek to understand how we must serve Him in the world. It is an exciting place to meet and worship, and visitors are always welcome. Full details about what we are doing is available at www.carrvillemethodist.org.uk
We have a wide range of activities and events which you are very welcome to attend. To discover what is taking place do come and join us. Our weekly notice sheet gives information on a regular basis, supplemented by a monthly magazine, The Visitor, which is full of articles and encouragement. Some of our activities are listed below:
Brownies meet on Tuesdays (5.30-7.00pm) the activities enable girls aged 7-10 years to work for interest badges, while developing a wide range of useful skills.
Faith and Friendship includes people who worship at Carrville. This group meets on a weekly basis (Mondays 8.00pm – online or in person) to share in prayer, friendship, bible study, worship and discussion.
House Group meets monthly on Wednesday afternoons to read and think carefully about the Bible and God’s message for us.
Pram Club meets Thursday mornings during term time (9.30am) and is an informal (sometimes hectic!) social gathering of parents and guardians with their young children. All are welcome to this.
Rainbows meet on Fridays (6.00pm). This is open to girls aged 5-7 years and provides a structured programme of fun activities.
Saturday Coffee Morning (10.00-12.00) – This takes place on the 1st Saturday of each month and raises money in aid of a range of charities as chosen by members of the congregation or to raise money for the work of the local church. Gifts for the cake stall and bring-and-buy are greatly appreciated.
