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 February we are supporting Mission in Britain.
Mission in Britain is an essential part of the One Mission of the Methodist Church in Britain. Churches across England, Wales and Scotland are courageously living out the calling of the Church in their communities – that is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.
Gifts to the Mission in Britain Fund enable the Methodist Church to support mission-orientated church projects through grant giving across the following categories:
- Mission Action on Poverty and Justice
- Ministering opportunities at Methodist Heritage sites
- The use of church properties to serve local communities
- Sharing the gospel with all ages
In February each year, we hold a ‘Mission in Britain’ service. Over the years we have invited speakers who are involved in ‘mission in Britain’ in a variety of ways. Recent speakers have included members of The Gideons and those involved in prison ministry.
This year, our “Mission in Britain’ service will be held on Sunday, 10thFebruary at 9.30am and will be led by Rev. Andrew Roberts. Our speaker will be Josh Jackson who is a staff worker with the University and Colleges Christian Fellowship (‘UCCF’) and works alongside Christian Unions in universities across the Midlands, including Birmingham, Aston and Wolverhampton. Josh will be sharing his experiences of working with UCCF and giving us the opportunity to support its work.
You can support Mission in Britain throughout February using the envelopes in church or at any time via the website Mission in Britain.
Donations are co-ordinated by Shona Roberts.
