OUR STORY

A warm welcome is extended to any visitors and others who might wish to join our fellowship. Our congregation is small, friendly, and enthusiastic. Our worship is reverent and sincere, informal, non-threatening and lots of fun. Our definition of worship is to enjoy God, to allow God to enjoy us, and to enjoy one another. We like challenging, Bible-based teaching and preaching and take seriously the call to be Kingdom people. Refreshments are served after Morning Worship. We work well with our Anglican friends, and often worship together and share in annual ventures including Lent Lunches (weekly during Lent) and Christian Aid fund-raising. We have a vision for service to the community and participate in, and interact with, the village community as much as possible.

We have a proud Methodist heritage. Methodism came to the Coleford village and coalfields in 1745, just a few years after the Wesley brothers’ heart-warming experiences of God’s grace. John Wesley visited the village more than twenty times, and affectionately referred to the Methodist community as his ‘little Kingswood in Somerset’, and ‘the honest colliers of Coleford’.  During the Nineteenth Century Coleford was an important and influential regional centre for Methodism, and offered Day-School and Sunday-School facilities well into the early Twentieth Century.

Regrettably, we have decided to sell our beloved Chapel and move to the ‘top village’. Most community activities now take place in what was the former village of Highbury – the ‘top village’ – and we want to move to where the action is. We are prayerfully looking for a new home, and are considering options including becoming a stake-holder in the proposed Village  Youth and Community Centre. (We are part of the Community Centre Steering Group.)
