Coronavirus updates

It is with sadness that we announce that there will be no public meetings or worship services at Great Ayton Methodist Church with immediate effect, including this coming Sunday, until further notice. This is a result of the present COVID-19 pandemic. Please look out for further updates as we explore other ways of doing church, being a family and serving the community. We pray for God’s blessings on us all.

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. From March to May we’re focusing on ‘breaking bread’. Look out for a range of eating together and communion based events and activities. A recommended reading list is available. Learn more here

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
