Home Page 2About Our Church

The use of the word Methodist correctly suggests that our Church has its origins within the Methodist Movement which came into being following the work of John Wesley in the 18th Century.

However, our Church is not a member of the World Wide Methodist Church but belongs to a much smaller group known as the Connexion of Independent Methodist Churches. Although we at Grappenhall have Church Services that are very similar in style to most mainstream Methodist Church there are major differences in other areas.

 

 

Firstly we are a self governing Church where the members of the Church decide on all matters.

Secondly we operate as a Church with a Lay Ministry and do not have a Minister in the accepted sense. Our Services are led by Lay Preachers who have responded to a calling to preach and minister on the Christian Faith.
