The Methodist Church in Retford

by | 2 August 2023 | Community Event, Community facility, Retford

The Grove and Hallcroft Methodist Churches work closely together to form the Methodist Church in Retford.

Although working together, these are separate churches but for more information on the below or on services at either church, visit, search Grove Street Methodist Church on Facebook, or phone 01777 702330.

The Grove

Exciting things are happening at The Grove as the builders, plumbers, electricians move in to start the long-awaited building works. Over the next few months, the vestibule and sanctuary area of the church will be undergoing extensive work. There will be a much-needed face lift, including to the very fine organ.

Music is an important part of the church service, and as the Grove organist of many years retires they are looking to fill that position; organist, pianist or both. Contact 01777 702330 if you would be interested in joining the rota.

August is always a quiet month – a time for recharging the batteries. There will be no Thursday lunches, but the Saturday Elevenses Coffee Morning (10.00am to 12.00pm) will continue throughout August in Chapelgate Hall, at the back of the church. If you enjoy a nice filter coffee, a toasted teacake and sometimes a delicious slice of cake, this is the place for you! In addition, you will be supporting a charity – local, national or worldwide – with each cuppa you enjoy.

Weekly, fortnightly and monthly groups will all be on holiday for August.

Hallcroft Methodist Church

There will be no Tuesday Fellowship during August, but Thursday Coffee Mornings will continue at 10.00am.

Sunday worship will take place in both churches as usual. You can find all details of all services during August at
