Keinton Mandeville is situated on the B3153, between Somerton and Castle Cary. The congregation is drawn from Keinton and the surrounding villages. Our Sunday services vary from traditonal worship to more informal relaxed times of worship. We recently held a successful first Café Church and intend to hold more in the future.
Our minister is Rev. Ken Chalmers, who is based at Castle Cary.

Keinton Mandeville Methodist Church
dates back to 1843. In 1843, Keinton - or 'Kington' as it was then called - had a population of about 600 people in just over 100 dwellings; where the population/dwellings had more than doubled in the previous 30 years. The growth was probably due to the expansion of the rail network, which enabled the stone from the local quarries to reach wider markets. The quarry industry, which had been in existence since at least 1698, employed about 40% of the male workers in the village. Keinton was also on the stage-coach route between London and Truro (via Barnstable), which provided passing trade for the local hostelries.
