You will be guaranteed a very warm welcome at our small village church. Our congregation comes from the immediate area and also from adjacent villages. As our Mission Statement says, we provide Christian worship on Sunday and fellowship during the week. After reading what follows please do come along, we would love to welcome you to our church.

There are regular Sunday services at 10.30 am. However during the pandemic we ask that you book a place to attend one of our services by telephoning the Senior Steward in advance on 01305 854229. Holy Communion is incorporated into the services on average one Sunday per month. Coffee, tea and biscuits are served after the service in the hall behind the church.
There are some joint services with the Parish Church, St Martin's, which is part of the Watercombe Benefice comprising St Martin's and four other churches in adjacent villages.

Ecumenical Work
In September 2012 the two churches in Broadmayne, us and the Parish Church, St Martin's, agreed to formalise the cooperation that exists between us by signing a covenant which details what the churches currently do together and what they hope to do in the future. The covenant is renewed every three years. In 2018 the Covenant was renewed and extended to include all the other churches in the Watercombe Benefice.

Throughout the year there are various joint services. The special services are:

  • Traditional Methodist Covenant Service in January
  • Good Friday Stations of the Cross throughout the churches in the Watercombe Benefice
  • Easter Sunday Service
  • Harvest Festival
  • Remembrance Sunday
  • Christmas Celebrations in the Village Hall
  • 5th Sunday in the month Benefice Services

Together at Ten Thirty, t@10.30, is the churches' way of trying to reach the wider community in Broadmayne and offers flexible styles of worship that non-church goers would be happy to join. This happens on the third Sunday of each month, except December.

There are many other joint ventures — shared Easter and Christmas cards, outreach at the local first and middle schools, and seasonal parties for the 'more senior' members of our Community.

By Still Waters
On the second Tuesday of each month at 9.30 am, for about half an hour, a small group of people meet for a meditative time together. For more details contact Brenda Stephenson 01305 459009.

Chapel Café
After recent refurbishment, Broadmayne Methodist Church has opened Chapel Café as a village amenity. Currently open every Friday morning between 10.30 am and 12 noon, a variety of teas and filter coffee are served together with cakes, toasted teacakes and biscuits.

Epic — Youth Group
