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 March we are supporting World Church.
The Methodist Church in Great Britain is the ‘mother church’ to Methodists worldwide. It participates in the World Methodist Council, the World Council of Churches and other ecumenical associations. As a worldwide church, it facilitates, maintains and develops relationships between the Methodist Church in Britain and Partner Churches throughout the world.
As such, it aims to transform the world through God’s love, establish a confident church that motivates to share God’s love and enable people to be part of a worldwide family.
These aims are furthered first, by themovement of people across cultures, countries and continents to work alongside, share and experience different ideas and different places and to learn and develop from such encounters; secondly, by the sharing of financial resources to equip churches for mission, ministry and church growth; and thirdly, by the production and sharing of resources which enable informed prayer and learning for places and people where a first-hand encounter is not possible.
The Methodist Church in Great Britain works with sixty Partner Churches worldwide in four geographical areas: Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia-Pacific and Europe. It also works with the Methodist Church in Ireland and in the Middle East.
Our World Church Service will be held on Sunday, 17th March at 9.30am when our speaker will be Rev, Paul Nzacahayo. Rev. Paul was the minister at Kinver from 2012 to 2015, following which he took up a teaching post at Queen’s College, Birmingham and a ministerial post in Wolverhampton. We are very much looking forward to welcoming him back to lead our worship and to learning about the Rwandan charity with which he is involved.
You can support World Church throughout March using the envelopes in church or at any time via the website World Church.
Donations are co-ordinated by Mary Grant.
