Skelmanthorpe belongs to the Methodist Church denomination. However our congregation includes people with backgrounds in other types of church. Our Sunday morning services usually last for 45–60 minutes
Traditional services begin at 10.30am and follow well-established patterns with hymn singing, prayers and a sermon about the Bible reading for the day.
There’s always someone around to welcome you and show newcomers around, and you may sit wherever you feel most comfortable!
All our services are intended to help us to meet with God in worship and to feel the love he has for us. Our readings and reflections help us to understand what he is doing in our lives.
Generally the service is led from the front of the church. People are welcome to either sit or stand as they feel comfortable for the different parts of the service.
An offering dish is available at the front of the church. No one has to make an offering of money if they prefer not to. Any money collected is used for the ongoing running costs of the Church, to pay for the church ministers, who, through their work, enable the church community to show care and concern for our neighbours, both locally and much further away.
Children may stay with their parents throughout our services, but there may be, if needed, an opportunity to join in more age-relevant activities if they would rather. All leaders have safeguard training that permits them to work with children.
Getting to know people is an important part of church life. It is through our relationships with others that we most often see, give and receive God’s love.
Should you need any help while you are in church, ask one of our stewards. Stewards available to help will be wearing a badge.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
