Shepton Mallet Methodist Church meets for worship most Sunday mornings at
11 o'clock. These Services are held in Shepton Parish Church
where there is a sharing agreement with the Anglicans. Revd Roly Sims is the minister to us and several other Methodist churches in
the area. He generally holds a Communion Service for us on the 4th Sunday of each month
Shepton Methodists are relatively small in
number - currently amounting to about 12 in all, but this figure includes a Local Preacher & 2 Worship Leaders. Currently the
Church is part of “West Mendip Circuit” but on 1 September 2009 this is changing to “Somerset Mendip” Circuit – a new circuit formed
by the merger of the existing Circuits of “Frome”, “Somerset Mission” & “West Mendip”.
Janet Day is the Wells / Shepton Mallet
Family Worker and both Anglicans & Methodists help her with the “Hillmead Project”, which is a school holiday play activity for
the town’s Junior children.
On the 3rd Sunday of each month, and at the Christian festivals, joint Anglican Methodist Family Services
are held – usually at 10am. (On these Sundays, there is no Methodist Service at 11am).
Details of all services are normally displayed
on the Notice Board outside the front of the Parish Church and anyone wanting further information should contact:-
