Welcome to Kinver Methodist Church. We are a welcoming community with Jesus at the centre. We aim to worship Him together and draw others to love and follow Him.
Kinver is a large village in South Staffordshire, bordered by Shropshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands conurbation. Over 7,000 people live in the village which is famous for the Holy Austin Rock Houses and Kinver Edge, both of which are owned by The National Trust.
The Church itself is located at the Potters Cross end of Kinver Village, within easy walking distance of the High Street and Kinver Edge.
Traidcraft aims to fight poverty through trade, helping people in developing countries to transform their lives. It was established in 1979 as a Christian response to poverty and is the UK’s leading fair trade organisation. At Kinver Methodist Church we support this organisation and products can be bought & ordered after our Sunday morning services each week.
“For the whole law can be summed up in this one command love your neighbour as yourself” – Galatians 5:14
As part of our Christian ministry we are committed to supporting the work of a different charitable organisation each month.
During December we are supporting Action for Children. The offerings at all our Christmas services will be donated to this amazing charity.
When Methodist minister Thomas Bowman Stephenson saw children in London living rough under the arches at Waterloo station, he decided he needed to act. He listened to the children and heard their stories, before working out the most practical way to help.
A century and a half later, the spirit of the founder of Action for Children remains its inspiration. Action for Children takes action on behalf of 301,000 children, young people, parents and carers across the UK. Its mission is to do what what is right, to do what is needed and to do what works for children.
From before they are born until they are into their twenties, Action for Children helps disadvantaged children across the UK. Support is given through the process of fostering and of adoption and through early intervention to prevent neglect and abuse. Action for Children makes life better for children with disabilities whilst helping to shape policy and advocating change. 7,000 staff and volunteers operate over 522 services to improve the lives of vulnerable children, young people, parents and carers making a huge and valuable difference.
You can support the work of Action for Children at any of our services over the Christmas period. Donations can also be made directly to Action for Children at any time, via the website Action for Children.
Donations are co-ordinated by Suzanne Smith.
