Welcome Rob!

We’re delighted to be hosting the circuit welcome service for Rev Rob Weir, our new minister, and his family at 3pm on Saturday 4 September. The service will be led by Rev Richard Andrew and will be followed by refreshments. Find out more on our What’s on page

Church online

Over the last ten months or so Great Ayton Methodist Church has done a great deal of work to develop its online presence. This has been a key mission area for us and we expect that this will continue after we begin to be able to meet for worship in person again. Our YouTube channel is averaging around 220 views each week which probably represents close to 300 people taking part in online worship. You can also engage with us via our social media channels using these links:

Church charity

We’re delighted to be supporting the Russ Devereux Headlight Project as our nominated charity for 2021. This project is local to us and works with children and adults who need support with their mental health. You can read more about our fundraising here.  We continue to support Middlesbrough Foodbank and to support a local village driven initiative to provide meals for people who are vulnerable in Ayton.

Coronavirus updates

Great News! We can sing! Some restrictions are still in place to keep everyone safe but things are looking a bit more normal. You don’t need to book to come to church on Sunday any more!! Refreshments are being served after morning worship and we’d love to see you even if you’ve not yet felt able to join us in church. You can still join our services on YouTube
