Halmer End is an historic mining village on the North Staffordshire Cheshire Border. At the heart of the village is Halmer End Methodist Church which is situated in the High Street (ST7 8AD). This Church has been a Christian worship centre for Halmer End for over 150 years and offers worshippers, old and new, a warm friendly welcome and heart felt worship led by Ministers of the Circuit and Local Preachers. On occasions, the members of the Church provide worship in their own style.
The Church fronts onto the street and you could easily walk past it without realising it is a church, but open the front door and walk in and you will be surprised. Inside is a very worshipful Chapel with an up to date sound and vision system for our worship, as well as reminders of the village's coal mining history.
Today the Church seeks to play its part in community life with its activities and events, and its worship, prayer and fellowship groups. Some things have changed since the Covid-19 outbreak and some of the activities that we previously had we can no longer do (e.g. the children's Monday Club as well as a Stay & Play Group – which we would like to re-start if we could find a volunteer leader!). However, we are introducing new activities for children and families in 2024 one of which is Lego Explorers, a group for children and adults (starting on Monday the 4th February 2024) when we will use Lego to tell Bible Stories – look out for more details.
We also have very active Rainbows, Brownies and Guides groups so if you want more details please see the Contact page.
Perhaps you and your family or business or school are taking part in the POSADA journey which our Minister, the Rev. Joy Ventom, started on Thursday 30th November with a service in the Chapel. The POSADA, meaning 'the Inns' is a shoebox size stable, with models of Mary and Joseph reminding us of the journey they made to Bethlehem. It stays at each venue for one night. It will complete its journey on Christmas Day at the Morning Service in Audley Methodist Church.
Do have a look through our website and come and join with us at any time, or call us on our contact page if you want more information.
Jesus is the reason we are here so why not come and experience the Halmer End welcome for yourself.
