We are a friendly, small but growing church in the centre of Freshwater.
'A heartbeat of prayer, worship and service in and for our community.'
We welcome all to join us for worship and to participate in our many and varied activities and meetings. Our church and hall were opened in 2014 on the site of the old Wesley Hall after a previous Church in Totland became unusable and we are currently planning an extension to provide more meeting space. Our Methodist tradition encourages members to live their faith and provides supportive fellowship throughout the week.
We meet for worship each Sunday morning at 10.30am and encourage a variety of worship styles for all ages. Children of all ages are always welcome and if it is not All Age Worship, they can leave the service after 15 mins to meet for their own session of Junior Church in Wesley Hall. On the second Sunday of the month, there is an informal café style worship led by our Worship Leaders and we always like to involve others to participate in this worship time.
We work very closely with the Churches Together in West Wight (CTWW) which is a group of 10 local churches from five denominations. There are monthly united services arranged locally plus on the first Sunday of each month we host Reflections, an informal time of praise and worship at 7.30pm with refreshments from 7pm
There are currently no upcoming events at this church.
