Whitstone Methodist Chapel can be found in the centre of the village next to the village shop. There is ample parking opposite the chapel. Our mission statement is: We are a family friendly chapel with a passion to worship God, walk with Christ, serve our neighbours and love one another.
We hold services at 11.00am most Sunday mornings. We are a congregation of between 12 and 18 people most weeks. We are delighted to have 7 young families who join us once a month for what started out as Messy Church a few years ago but has now evolved into Creative Worship and this can have 30-35 adults and children attending. We were encouraged and supported by Michelle Hogarth, our lay worker, to set up and develop these worship sessions and we are always grateful for her input and enthusiasm. Sometimes we meet at the chapel but in the summer months we try to worship in different outside locations, in the woods, on a farm and on the beach to take our worship into the wider community. We also have monthly All age worship services when the young families join with us in our chapel. It is a real joy to have that spirit of youth back in our chapel.
During Covid, we started a weekly prayer group on Zoom on Tuesday evenings which Michelle facilitates and that has continued on a weekly basis. We have also had weekly prayer meetings at our chapel on Monday evenings to pray for a vision of what the way forward looks like for our chapel and its community.
On the first Tuesday morning each month we run a coffee morning from 10.30 until 12.00 with an activity of photos to peruse or a quiz either to do at the time or take home to ponder! If you are in the area please feel free to pop in and join us!
