SUNDAYS: Morning service at 10.30am, which sometimes include Holy Communion. Coffee and a
time of fellowship follow the services. At least once a quarter we have a Café Church which is held in the relaxed surroundings of
the hall. These Sundays prove popular. We also have a number of united services with the Parish church.
BIBLE STUDY This is a truly ecumenical group and meets on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Mondays of the month. The starting times are April
to September 7.00pm and October to March at 2.00pm in the Chapel Hall. At present the studies are based on the lectionary and will
provided extensions to the passages used during most of the previous Sunday's service.
MORNINGS: These take place on the 4th Thursday of every month at 10.30am. This is very much a community event attracting a large number
of people from the village. There is always a bring & buy stall and some months we have special attractions to support various
CHAPEL TODDLERS: For those ages 0 - 5yrs and their Mums, Dads, Nannies etc. The
group meets from 9.45 - 11.45am every Thursday morning except the 4th Thursday of the month. It is a very lively, friendly group and
meets in the hall. As well as toys to play with, there are often craft activities, or stories and singing. Tea and coffee is available
throughout the morning for the adults and the toddlers enjoy a cafe time when they have snacks and juice.
FRIDAY CLUB: A youth club for 10 - 14 year olds, which runs from 7.30 pm every Friday evening, during term-time. This club is open
to all young people from Keinton and surrounding villages and includes 'Jesus Time'. As well as playing group games, there is table
tennis, snooker and a playstation available. The group has now joined with the village Youth Council and so there are always opportunities
for young people to put forward ideas they have concerning the village. The most popular part of the evening is the Tuck shop!
Keinton Mandeville Methodist Church dates back to 1843. In 1843, Keinton - or 'Kington' as it was then called - had a population of
about 600 people in just over 100 dwellings; where the population/dwellings had more than doubled in the previous 30 years. The growth
was probably due to the expansion of the rail network, which enabled the stone from the local quarries to reach wider markets. The
quarry industry, which had been in existence since at least 1698, employed about 40% of the male workers in the village. Keinton was
also on the stage-coach route between London and Truro (via Barnstable), which provided passing trade for the local hostelries.
Keinton Mandeville is situated on the B3153, between Somerton and Castle Cary. The congregation is drawn from Keinton and the surrounding
villages. Our Sunday services vary from traditional worship to more informal relaxed times of worship. Our minister is Rev. Craig
Manley, who is based at Castle Cary.
