Coronavirus updates

Update 3 November 2020. The upcoming ‘lockdown’ starting on 5 November means that, for the next four Sundays at least, there will be no ‘in-person’ services at Great Ayton Methodist Church. We’ve loved meeting together in person and online over the last few Sundays but now we need to make sure we protect each other and keep people safe. We’ll continue to worship online on YouTube with services either being streamed live or pre-recorded. Services will take place at 10.30am* with links and further information being posted on our social media channels. Click here for details.

*Sunday 8 November is remembrance Sunday and our service will start at 10.0am for that week only to allow you to take part in the 11.00 am silence in whatever way you choose.

Please look out on our What’s On page here, or on our social media accounts for updates as things change.

Holy Habits

Holy Habits is an adventure in Christian discipleship inspired by Luke’s model of church found in Acts 2:42–47, it identifies ten habits to guide a way of life. We have been following these across the circuit with a focus on making new disciples. Our study of these habits has been put on hold during the pandemic and we’l pick it up again when we are able.

Church charity 2020

Following our very successful support for the Smiles Foundation in 2019, we’re nearer home in 2020 and supporting Teesside Hospice. The hospice needs to fundraise to cover around two-thirds of its operating costs. We aim to try and raise enough to allow them to operate for at least one day! Find out more here
