A WORD OF WELCOME FROM OUR MINISTER

You have found us!

Whether this is your first visit to www.woodseatsmethodistchurch.com or a return,we hope that you will enjoy browsing these pages which give a taste of life at our busy church in the heart of Sheffield's Woodseats community.

'Community' is central to who we are and what we do. We are community of people of all ages, shapes and sizes, each with our own stories to tell. Together, we are trying to work out what it means to be followers of Jesus in 2017. Our church buildings are a centre for the local community and here you can read more about the work with children, young people and older adults. We are also part of the Methodist community here in Sheffield, throughout the United Kingdom and the wider world.

Our Sunday services aim to provide 'something for everyone with family worship at 9.30am - here you may find toddlers playing in their corner, younger children involved in arts and crafts, adults and young people getting into discussions or exploring active ways of praying. You might also meet 'Saints Alive' puppets. At 10.45am we have hymns and songs and an emphasis on exploring God's word through preaching and prayer. We celebrate communion at both services, usually about once a month.

As members of this community we are here to learn more about Jesus who preached the Gospel - the good news of the Kingdom of God. Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, Christians believe that God has broken the power of all that is evil, in the world and in ourselves. If we accept forgiveness and liberation, and are willing to be open to the Holy Spirit, God can enable us to resist evil and to live life to the full.

 Who we are and what we do is summed up in our mission statement;

 We are here to be the people of God; to follow the way of Jesus; and by witness and example to bring others to Christ. Our desired aims are:-

(1) Spiritual to deepen personal faith through prayer, bible study, worship, discussion and teaching.

(2) Outreach to befriend and care for the local community, showing that the Christian message is relevant today.
