Staveley Methodist Church

Chesterfield Road, Staveley, Chesterfield, S43 3XD



A very warm welcome to Brimington Methodist Church.

The Church was opened in 1967 and is situated on The Green in the heart of the village. The building's distinctive triangular shape, depicting hands joined in prayer, is a landmark and fitting for a Church which puts prayer at the centre of Christian life.

The Church offers a friendly welcome to a wide range of people from the Brimington area and as well as being a worshipping community offers social support and care, including involvement in the Brimington Food Bank, run by the Trussell Trust.

Community users

Various community groups use the Church as a base for their activities but are not meeting at present, although the Little Characters Nursery and the Before and After School Club continue to use the building.

Keeping in touch

Through the difficult time of the pandemic, The Church continues to connect members and friends by sending them information either by email or by post.

Church Post Covid Re-Opening

Pentecost marks the birth of the Church and so it is fitting that we aim to open the doors of our main worship space on Sunday 23rd May for our gathering at 10:30am. We remain vigilant and committed to providing a safe space for all who wish to attend. Therefore, we will replicate some of the best practice we learnt last autumn:

  • Bookings must be made in advance to ensure we achieve maximum occupancy through the safe distribution of seating.
  • Please book as early as possible by calling Jill Ramsdale on 01246 555822, Monday to Friday 7-9pm.
  • Bookings for each Sunday service will close at 9pm every Friday evening to allow time for the sanctuary to be set-up appropriately.
  • Face coverings must be worn and we must maintain social distancing whilst inside the building.
  • Attendance will be recorded for the purposes of test and trace and in line with GDPR.
  • We remain unable to sing and there will be no gathering for coffee afterwards.
  • These guidelines will continue to be reviewed in light of the changing Government guidance.
