Gainsborough Methodist Church
Minister: Rev. Louise Carr
Refurbished in 2006 Gainsborough Methodist Church (GMC) is a growing church in 'fit for purpose' premises. For Groups or Individuals wishing to utilise our premises please note that all bookings must be made through the Bookings Officer - Sylvia Cammack ☏ 01427 238840 - Terms of hire may be viewed HERE.
Overall we pride ourselves in being an inclusive community, building faith and catering to all ages. We attempt to ensure that our worship is informative and inspirational, yet also warm and comfortable.
At the heart of our community are a wonderfully diverse group of individuals, called together to serve God and one another, in any way that they are able. There are a number of ways to connect with and get to know fellow church members alongside the regular Sunday morning worship setting. These range from joining small weekday Prayer and Music Groups, through to attending weekly 10:00AM Saturday Coffee Mornings, and Monthly Social Occasions.
Check out the Gainsborough Methodist Church Events page for full details of the regular Groups and Social Occasions.
In addition at GMC the following regular youth activities are available:
- Fridays - Girls' Brigade - from 6:30PM Explorers and Juniors, from 7:00PM Seniors and Brigaders (contact Nicola Golland ☏ 01427 810305)
We are now introducing a reflective mid-week communion service as a monthly event. This will be on the last Tuesday of the Month at 10AM.
This Month's Services
It is with sadness that we recommend that worship services in the majority of the Circuit's Methodist Churches are again suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance... You will find HERE the initial letter dated 8th June 2020 providing some information on the gradual re-opening of the circuit churches, and in addition the December update letter HERE. Please also take a look at the latest Tiers update HERE.
Gainsborough Chapel will hopefully soon be open again for short Sunday worship at 10:00 AM with a limited attendance. Please contact Bev Broughton ☏ 07519 188349 regarding reserving a place for future services.
We will be preparing home worship resources for each Sunday... Please download this week's HERE. This resource is available alongside the Circuit Zoom Service, a live videoconferencing service that will be taking place each Sunday at 4:00 PM if you wish to join us. If you need help regarding downloading Zoom, connecting to the service via your computer or telephone then please contact one of the circuit ministers.
If video calling is not your thing then please find an alternative home worship sheet for this week available HERE.
At this time it is beneficial to check out the ways in which you can CONNECT with your Lord and with others at this difficult time... In addition please have a read of A Methodist Way of Life and consider the things you can do ...
