  • Our first service in the Church premises will be still under strict awareness of the risk of infection and we need to comply with all the up to date guidelines. We should not be spending any longer than 1 hour in total in the church. This includes 15 min before worship actually commences. Face masks and social distancing are still in place. There will be a one way system, please enter through the main entrance and follow the signs. Unfortunately we cannot sing at full strength but a quiet karaoke is allowed. We hope to use visual and audio equipment to enhance the message and avoid using books. The service will be shorter. I know all this may feel off putting, but we are not going to give up.
  • New start time: After many conversations and a yearlong gap it has been decided that as of 6th June the Sunday service at Newington Methodist Church will start at 10.30 am NOT 9.30.
  • Pastoral care — important to keep in touch by phone. Postal delivery of notices and Sunday worship sheet for those without internet.

Saturday Coffee mornings via Zoom every first Saturday in the month.

Thank you all for your support and prayers.
Rev. Robert Zachar

The Methodist Church in the centre of Newington village, at 1 Church Lane, offers a traditional worship service open to all at 10.30 am every Sunday. Many of our services are led by local lay preachers. Holy Communion is celebrated when our minister is leading worship.

For a number of years, we have been building a stronger relationship between the Methodist congregation and The Six, in particular St Mary's, Newington. Joint services are held on a regular basis and the church office for The Six is located in the Methodist church building. We look forward to doing more together in God's service.
St Mary is open to anyone who would like to attend in person and we also stream most services live on Zoom. Links to pre-register for services on Zoom are on this page.
