Service Times

10.15am - Morning Worship - everyone welcome
We have a variety of styles of worship led by our Ministers or Lay Preachers.
We have a new, comfortable Worship Area, for all, with a good audio/visual system.
There is also an attractive place, within the Worship Area, where children, their parents/carers can enjoy worshipping together.
Coffee/Tea/Squash is served after the service enabling everyone to socialise.

6.00pm - Evening Worship - everyone is welcome
Our Worship Area is flexible and our Evening Worship can include occasional alternative forms of services, when speakers are invited from charities or other social organisations. Such occasions will always be advertised.

We also occasionally have a more informal meeting for fellowship and food on Sunday afternoons at 4.00 pm instead of an evening service. This would be advertised in advance.

Although we have few children, morning worship includes a time for them, before they leave for their own time of learning.

Occasional alternative evening services are arranged with speakers from charities or other social organisations

Barrow upon soar Methodist Church seeks to help the members of its church family to grow in their relationship with God and each other; and to witness to God’s love by serving Him in our local community and throughout the wider world.

In order to do this, we will:

Worship

  • be open to developing a variety of worship appropriate to our community.
  • be open to further developing our ecumenical relationships.
  • continue to ensure that our worship services are welcoming and accessible.

Learn and Care

  • encourage all members of the Church family to grow in faith by providing opportunities through Bible studies, work with young people, prayer meetings and fellowship groups.
  • continue to develop effective pastoral care.

Serve

  • respond to community needs by continuing to offer volunteers from the church family, and making the premises available for use.
  • be aware of local issues and respond appropriately.
  • increase our awareness of world issues, and continue our charitable giving.
  • work towards environmental good practice.

Evangelise

  • encourage members to use their God given gifts in their daily lives.
  • continue to encourage our community to come to church activities.
  • continue to encourage development of ecumenical acts of witness.

The present Barrow upon Soar Methodist Church was built in 1911 and occupies a central position in this rapidly growing village.  Our congregation is spiritually strong and very supportive toward each other and to members of the community.  We have completed a major project to make our premises more multi-purpose and user friendly as we look to the future. We work closely with the other village churches through Barrow upon Soar Churches Together.  As well as services on Sundays we have many groups who meet within our building.  Everyone receives a warm welcome whether they are a new worshipper or occasional visitor.
