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.

Charitable Giving


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

Monthly Collections

As part of our Christian ministry we are committed to supporting the work of a different charitable organisation each month.

During July we are supporting Action for Children (‘AfC’) in its 150th anniversary year!

When Thomas Bowman Stephenson saw children living rough under the arches of Waterloo station in London, he decided he had to act and his first action was to listen. He paid children the respect of hearing their stories, before working out the most practical way to help.   

A century and a half later – in its 150th year – the spirit of Thomas Stephenson remains AfC’s inspiration. AfC works hard to put the foundations in place for children to thrive, taking time to listen and acting when help is needed.

AfC believes that every child should grow up safe and happy which is why it provides support to help children thrive and steps in to help when times get tough.

This means protecting the vulnerable from neglect and abuse. It means supporting young people who are homeless and those who care for others. It means finding safe and loving homes and giving children a voice by campaigning for something better.

AfC believes in building solid foundations and spotting problems early. Parenting classes, early years education, and advice on emotional wellbeing are just as important as breaks for young carers and extra help for disabled children.  

AfC works on the ground, in communities, through more than 476 local services across the UK. AfC is also in schools, online and talking to government: doing what is right for children.  

AfC helps more than 387,000 children, young people and their families in the UK every year. But it can still do more!

You can support AfC  throughout July using the envelopes in church or at any time via the website Action for Children.

Donations are co-ordinated by Suzanne Smith.
