A family of faith, hope and love, called by Jesus Christ to share his love with all.
Welcome to the Newbold Methodist church website .We hope you find it interesting and enjoy having a look round.
Due to the outbreak of the Covid 19 virus many of the usual activities will no longer be taking place. However we are glad to be able to be the church in our homes and community and pray that at this difficult and worrying time you may know the peace and love of God in your heart and in your mind.
If you feel in need of support or practical help please contact Keren on 01455 823853 who will do her best to advise and co-ordinate any practical help we can give.
God of the widow and God of the prophet,
you told us a story
of how a little oil and a little flour,
and the kindness of community,
saw a family through.
Jar after jar was filled and stored.
Remind us how a drop and a speck,
a tap on the door,
the willingness to believe in response to a need
made all the difference in that story,
and can make all the difference in ours.
(Prayer from the Corrymeela Comunity)
We are a growing church of around 70 members with in addition to our children and young people. Together we are committed to work, giving and praying and to express the love of God for all.
Worshipping God is central to our church life, where we come to be fed by God’s Holy Spirit and equipped for our daily lives. We meet for worship on Sunday morning at 10:30 and have evening worship services about twice a month. Children and young people meet for Junior church at the same time followed by drinks and chat.
We are committed to growing in faith, exploring and learning together how we can follow Jesus, through our Wednesday evening group, the Ladies’ Guild, the Junior Church and the Youth Group.
We share worship and learning with the other churches in the village and together run Fun Days and a Holiday club which is great fun and very noisy! We hold a range of events so people can come to meet together. Our monthly coffee mornings on the first Saturday of the month are very popular and people from the village and beyond come along to browse the stalls and meet and chat over a coffee and a toasted teacake.
We are part of the Hinckley Methodist Circuit so we are linked with all the other churches on this website.
Issues of poverty and justice are important to us; we take part in Christian Aid week and support different charities and causes as we learn new ways of responding to the needs of people thoughout the world. We support the Hinckley Area Foodbank and have a collection point for items in the main hall. We try to use Fairtrade items in our catering and to look after our beautiful planet by re-cycling and composting as much as possible to show our respect for the world that God has given to us.
Christenings, funerals and weddings take place here and we hope to play our part in sharing both the joys and sorrows of life with whoever comes to these services. We hope to share the welcome and the love of God to all who come into this place.
Our Community Pastor, Malcolm Lapper, and our pastoral team work alongside our Minister, Rev Dave Haseldine, to support and encourage church members and people within our community.
