Bembridge Methodist Church is a church with a heart for worship, service and fellowship. We average a congregation of approximately 30 each week.
Our music group includes keyboard, drums, flute, saxophone, recorder and oboe providing a great combination with which to sing.
Everyone is welcome and together we can explore the Christian faith, learn to serve Jesus through worship on Sundays, during the week, and in smaller housegroups. We discover ways of being disciples through prayer and by meeting the needs of people in the community and the world. We have events and activities for all ages and as a ‘family’ we enjoy being together socially, having fun, and caring for each other. Whether you are working, living or holidaying in Bembridge, we look forward to welcoming you to worship and events at Bembridge Methodist Church.
Our services are normally at 10.30 every Sunday morning but on the first Sunday of the month we change to 5pm and that service is usually led by our minister John.
Bookings for using the premises can be made through Lyn Graham 07790 645696.
