The Methodist Church in Retford

by | 1 September 2023 | Community Event, Community facility, Retford, Social Group

The Grove and Hallcroft Methodist Churches work closely together to form the Methodist Church in Retford. See, or Facebook page, www.facebook.cpm/Grove-Street-Methodist-Church-Retford, for times of services and regular activities. You can also call 01777 702330.

The Grove

Exciting things continue to happen at the Grove as the building works begin to transform the vestibule and sanctuary and other areas of the church. The much-needed face lift includes their very fine organ. Music is an important part of their church service and as their organist of many years retires, they are looking to fill that position; organist, or pianist, or both. Contact 01777 702330 if you would be interested in joining them.
