Marton Methodist Church

High Street,
Marton,
Gainsborough,
Lincolnshire,
DN21 5AA.

Minister: Rev. Heather Wilson

 

About Marton

We have been one of the oldest, perhaps even the oldest chapel in Lincolnshire, meeting in the same premises for over 200 years. The village has a long history, with a rich Roman heritage - lying on the original roman road between Lincoln and Littleborough.

The Chapel celebrated its 200 year Anniversary on July 6th 2014. In 2016 it looked as though the Chapel was coming to the end of it's life but we came together in prayer and discussion to find a new vision of bringing God to our community.

We decided to transform our ministry and Marton Methodist Church relaunched at the beginning of 2017.

Prior to the Pandemic we had previously built a strong relationship with the Young People of Marton and their families through the work done with the village Primary School, a Youth Club, and Messy Church / Open Church events that ran on Friday evenings. We hope that we are considered an integral part of the Marton Village community and also hope to possibly restart and continue our Youth Work again in the future.

SAFEGUARDING

Upton Methodist Church

High Street,
Upton,
Gainsborough,
Lincolnshire,
DN21 5NL.

Minister: Rev. Louise Carr

 

About Upton

We have a small, but charming, well kept Methodist chapel that was built in 1822. The 1851 census recorded a 'Great Many Sabbath Day Scholars', so it is presumed that is when the Schoolroom was added. In 1839, 63 of the 70 seats were let to residents of Upton and Kexby. From our records we can note that a local farmer John Olivant, and John Laughton, (Landlord of the Rose and Crown) were the first stewards and trustees.

So as you can see - stretching back to our origins - we have always had strong links with the local community. Throughout the years, and still today, the Fotheringham family have been loyal members and have taken an active role within both the church and village activities. It is important to us that our Church continues to provide our rural community with care and support, sustained faith and spiritual development, and all important fellowship.

 

Worship

Our Sunday morning services are at 10:30AM followed by fellowship with coffee/tea and biscuits.

With regards to our Covid precautions there is no longer a need to book a place for our services but the Track and Trace sign in continues on arrival at the chapel. We ask that everyone wears a mask until everyone is seated then it is a personal choice whether they are worn during the service, We will be serving coffee/tea after the service if people wish to stay.

  • Help for Afghan Crisis and Refugees

    We have been asked to look at what we might do to support Afghan Refugees arriving in this country. Rev. Louise has spoken to West Lindsey District Council who have as yet made no plans to receive any refugees. However the Government’s warm welcome programme which was announced on 18th August 2021 has not been opened nor have details been given to local councils. West Lindsey will hold a meeting after these are announced to decide on their pledge. They did not take any Syrian Refugees on a similar programme (data from an internet document of all Lincolnshire Councils).

    If you have a strong opinion on this I would suggest writing to the Leader of the council, Cllr. Owen Bierley whose contact details can be found HERE.

  • Increase in Scams

    There seem to be a number of scams using Christian terms at the moment. Please be very careful. Never reply to such a text or email. Rather contact the person by a different means to check. Your Ministers will not ask you to purchase gift cards on their behalf by email or text. Please let us know if you receive such an email or text so we can pass the information on to Action Fraud and the Police.

 

Social and Community Life

We do usually meet for a Coffee Morning on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 10:00AM till 12:00 NOON. Why not take a ride out and come and visit? We will be glad to welcome you!

(Due to the rising Covid infection rates in the area at present, we feel that it is best to suspend our monthly Coffee Mornings for the moment. We will inform everyone when we can begin to meet again for a good Cuppa and a Chat...)

 

SAFEGUARDING

Nettleton Methodist Church

Church Street,
Nettleton,
Market Rasen,
Lincolnshire,
LN7 6NP.

Minister: Rev. Heather Wilson

 

About Nettleton

We are a small and welcoming church who want to glorify God through our worship and service within our quiet residential community. 

Methodism came to Nettleton in 1796 in the homes of Henry Spring, Zechariah Featherstone and Robert Appleby. The chapel was built in 1800, enlarged in 1847 and the schoolroom, kitchen and toilet added in 1912.

The Primitive Methodist Chapel (across the road) was built in 1858, but when its lease expired in 1957 it was agreed to unite the two societies and worship in the present chapel, which was renovated and re-opened in 1957. The main worship area and a school room are linked by a removable screen which makes the space very flexible. In 2002 the kitchen and toilet facilities were updated, followed by repairs to the roof and exterior brickwork. This work uncovered an unknown Ironstone wall, which has now been restored to its former glory.

 

Worship

Our weekly services are usually held at 2:00PM every Sunday. Occasionally we also open for a 6:00PM Evening service. In addition a Joint service is held with the Parish Church 4 times a year and held in Church and Chapel alternately.

SAFEGUARDING

North Kelsey Methodist Church

Chapel Street,
North Kelsey,
Market Rasen,
Lincolnshire,
LN7 6EJ.

Minister: Rev. Louise Carr

 

About North Kelsey

The first Wesleyan Methodist chapel was built in North Kelsey in 1796 and was replaced by a new building in 1848-49. This in turn was replaced by the Chapel Street building which was erected as a Wesleyan chapel in 1897 at the same time as 5 other chapels in the area.

The High Street Primitive chapel was closed in 1963 and the two congregations joined together and were placed in the Brigg Circuit. After 40 years the North Kelsey Chapel moved back into the Market Rasen and Caistor Circuit. In 2013 it finally found its home within the Wolds and Trent Circuit.

Our congregation is smaller than a lot of Chapels in the area, but we received a boost following the closure of the South Kelsey Methodist Church. We were happy to welcome its members into our community and we enjoy worshiping together. That stated, worship in a small group setting can have its benefits, including a capacity for deeper friendship and personal growth, and an appreciation of the shared mission of the wider church community.

 

Worship

Morning Worship is every Sunday at 10:45AM. Everyone is most welcome.

Misterton Methodist Church

High Street,
Misterton,
Doncaster,
South Yorkshire,
DN10 4BU.

Minister: Rev. Louise Carr

 

About Misterton

There are references to at least 17 visits by John Wesley to Misterton. He held meetings in the fields and in the home of Ann Codd of Colton Street. On her death she bequeathed her house to John and Charles Wesley to be used as a meeting place. This rapidly became too small, the house was sold and in 1756 a Meeting House was built on the site of the present Wesleyan Methodist Church.. The original trustees being approved by John and Charles Wesley

The Wesleyans, again, required a larger building, so a Chapel was built in 1826 using bricks from the original Meeting House. It was built with 35 pew holders, a gallery area for Choir and orchestra and a seating capacity of 298. By the 1870’s there was both a Wesleyan and a Primitive Methodist Church in Misterton and both required larger premises. In 1878 two new Chapels were built 100 yards apart. The newspapers reported 500 people at each opening service. The first resident Minister Rev Charles Richardson was installed in 1874.

At the Union of Methodism in 1932 numbers were large enough for both Chapels to be sustained. The two congregations were eventually amalgamated in 1963 when the Wesleyan Site was chosen to be the current place of worship. Additionally In the 1960s, an (internally) attractive light-filled church hall with stage was added for use by the surrounding community.

The year 2016 marked the 260th Anniversary of Methodism in Misterton. Misterton, today, lives up to its rich history. It continues to be thriving, active community with a range of activities and social groups. We are proud that a warm welcome is given to anyone who wishes to join us.
