a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints

Welcome to the website of Silverdale Methodist Church.

WE ARE OPEN FOR SUNDAY WORSHIP — beginning at 11am, with entry to the Church Building permitted from 10:45am onwards. However, you need to book a place in-order to be able to attend — call Christine Benson on 07473 921074 on a Thursday between 12 midday & 8:30pm, or a Friday between 11am & 8:30pm, to book your place at Worship for the following Sunday. Note that we only have space for 20 worshippers, which is allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis — but please only call on the days, and during the times, specified!

Remember that we are in a "new normal" situation, and that going to Church is different to what you expect; lots of restrictions are in-place — including, but not limited to, no singing & the need for a face covering — so please make sure that you are aware of them all so as not to be left disappointed or upset by anything.

'IGNITE', our Youth Group, is now ALSO OPEN TOO — running every Friday night, during term-time, from 6pm to 7pm, at a cost of £1 per child. Please note the following differences >
  • ONLY enter via the main Car Park at the rear of the Church, which is accessible by turning into Abbey Street, directly after the Chip Shop, and then immediately turning left through the gates and into the Car Park; then proceed up the alleyway, and you will see the open door in-front of you!
  • To collect your child(ren), please use the main Front Entrance (on Earl Street), noting that the door will be locked until 7pm; we will open the door ourselves, so please do not touch it so that we can avoid cross-contamination.
  • The usual refreshments will not be available, as we are unable to serve them — but what will be available are individually wrapped drinks & snacks, of which the wrappers will then be disposed of in the refuse by the user. Wipes & Hand-Gel will of course be available, and in-use at all appropriate times, and Social Distancing will be maintained — we will be fully COVID-secure, as that is the only way that we can run!
  • For those maybe asking "how?", then please rest-assured that Youth Group's are exempt from the "rule of 6" (click here for confirmation), which is why we can re-open, so long as we make it COVID-secure, which of course it will be.

    The Leadership Team are currently working on ways of how we can re-open other area's of our ministry.
    So please keep checking this website, and also our Facebook Page, to ensure that you are always as up-to-date as possible! However, please remember that things can change in an instant — we cannot currently guarantee that any dates or plans will be honoured, as we continue to adhere to the latest Guidance.

    If you have any questions or concerns, then please do send us a message and we will try our best to answer — either use the "Contact Us" section of this website, or go to our Facebook Page and send us a message on there, and we will respond as soon as we can.

    And remember to view our latest NewsSheet, which is easily accessible on this page (under "Weekly News Sheet") — all older ones that are not listed there can be found here.

    Please remember also that we still have financial commitments — so please do all you can to support us, either with a regular Standing Order or a One-Off Donation. Use the "Contact Us" form here to register your interest — or if you usually give each week, please continue to put your weekly donation to one side, and ensure that it reaches us regularly so that our finances can keep moving! Any donation would be gratefully received in these most trying of times.
