Welcome to Clowne Methodist Church, part of the Derbyshire North East Circuit.
The Methodist Church in Clowne was built in 1876 in the centre of the old village. It is situated on North Road, opposite Recreation Close which leads to the village Community Centre, Library, Health Centre and Villa Park Recreation ground.
The Minister at Clowne is Revd Mark Carrick.
We have services on a Sunday and on Tuesday evenings and Thursday mornings.
Regular Sunday afternoon services are held each week at 3pm except for the first Sunday of the month when we have a family service at 10:45am.
Tuesday evenings alternate between a fellowship service and a prayer time – both held at 7:00pm.
Worship is mainly traditional, although alternative styles are also used. Services aim to be meaningful for everyone, with hymns old and new, prayers in different forms, and readings from many versions of the Bible.
The church has a small congregation of adults and a Sunday Club for children. Despite its small size, the congregation has a wide vision, to seek God's help, to work together, to be faithful and loyal to Him, aiming to be a spiritual light in the area.
The building is fully equipped to meet disability legislation, with sound and loop system for the hard-of-hearing, large-print hymn books available for the partially sighted, accessible toilet facilities, and ramped access to all areas of the ground floor.
The church is a member of the Clowne Union of Churches, which represents the three local Christian churches and meets together to demonstrate commitment to Christ amongst the village community. Members of the congregation particularly look forward to joint events during Christmas, Easter and on Remembrance Sunday.
Young People at Clowne Methodist Church
There is a thriving Youth Club for the 11+ age group, with around 20 members on the register. Most of the children are not those of Church members, so these links are valued as an important point of contact with the wider community.
