December 31st Cluster Service at Stratford
In our circuit, we are increasingly short of people qualified to lead worship as our faithful preachers age, become infirm or come to the end of their earthly journey. It has been decided that worshippers from Mickleton, Welford, Bidford, Henley and Stratford will gather together to worship, once a quarter at Stratford when there is a fifth Sunday in the month. We continue this ‘experiment’ on December 31st  and will worship at Stratford at 10.30. If you need transport, please contact: Mark 01386 438 572

You are welcome to join us for morning worship (MW) and, once a month, Holy Communion (HC). Special services include Carol Services, School Assemblies and United Songs of Praise with Baptisms, weddings and funerals conducted by arrangement with the Minister.

In addition to the Sunday morning service our weekly fellowship meets on Thursdays at 2.30pm. Open House - a bible-based interdenominational discussion group meets at 10.30am on the second Wednesday of each month.

The hall, adjacent to the Methodist Church is available for hire for regularly or occasionally or for one-off events such as children’s parties, or funeral teas. (The hall was built mostly by Methodists, as a ‘Band of Hope’ meeting place, to encourage people to be teetotal. A legacy from those days is that alcohol cannot be consumed on virtually all Methodist premises. Even our communion wine has to be non-alcoholic!)

We are in the process of changing the management of bookings. In the interim period, please contact Ros Murphy with any enquiries regarding existing or possible bookings ) Call: 01789 740 538 or email

Mickleton Methodist Prayer

Loving God, may we fulfil our calling as your people, living out the values of the gospel among our neighbours. Breathe intous your Spirit so that we can share your love with those we meet in our daily lives. We pray that new people may continue to come into our church and find here a place of welcoming love where together we can experience the eternal truths of your Kingdom.

Grant us the insights and the strength we need to make our church a place where strangers become friends and companions on the path of faith. Show us how to work with other Christians in this village so that together we may reveal your love. We ask our prayer in the name of Jesus, the risen Lord. 

Amen
