|Bembridge Methodist Church is blessed with:
Music Group. Fine Singing. Friendly People. Warm Welcome.
The Minister is available to all residents and visitors, and is happy to provide Home Communion. Church Membership is not a prior requirement.
Our church building is accessible and user-friendly, & large-print Hymn & Song Books are available.
We have a number of regular weekly prayer groups, bible study and fellowship groups.
The church seeks to reflect God's love and care for us by providing pastoral care and support for its members and those connected with the church.
A very successful Holiday Club, with a strong Christian theme, runs for three days during the summer holidays, for children from the local community, usually concluding with a presentation to parents and a BBQ. A group of young people and their leaders regularly attend 'Soul Survivors' camps to grow in their Christian faith.
Several Village activities and organisations meet on our premises. The Brownies and Rainbows Groups meet weekly.
Welcome to Bembridge - we are here for you.
The present church, seating a congregation of 220, built by the local firm of Weaver Bros., was opened 17th May 1934.
In 1974 the premises, at the rear of the church, were enlarged with the addition of a kitchen (since modernised), classroom, toilets, and large car park. Later the front porch was enlarged and the Wesley Room added.
A new heating system has recently been installed, and a state-of-the-art sound system.
Services are recorded for the benefit of the housebound and Junior Church teachers. Orders of Service and transcripts of the Minister's sermons are available on request.
A Pastoral Team ensures visits to members, particularly the ill and infirm, to whom Church flowers are distributed.
Our outreach work includes support of Action for Children, Home and Overseas Missions, the Mission Aviation Fellowship, Fair Trade, the Island Hospice and local Residential / Nursing Homes. The church has provided financial support to a nurse, named Purity, in completing her training at Maua Methodist Hospital in Kenya.
We enjoy fellowship with our local Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches and share in many events and acts of worship during the year.
