Outreach in our Community

Our Methodist Church at Sidwell Street seeks to bring its mission and the message of love that Christ embodied to individuals and groups within our local community.

Monday afternoons in the Rainbow Garden, a breath of fresh air on Sidwell Street. We are open to the local Community February to October every Monday from 3pm to share practical skills and knowledge of growing fruit and vegetables. There is no charge and all helpers are welcome to take home a share of the produce.

Tuesday Coffee Mornings These are held fortnightly. See our calendar for weeks when we are open.

Monthly on a Wednesday evening we have a Men's Meeting with speakers and illustrated talks, sometimes chocolate cake and an annual dinner out as well as a summer time BBQ in the Rainbow Garden. 
Thursday evening is Badminton Club from 7:30pm. This runs during term time.

Monthly on the 1st Friday we hold a Company and Craft afternoon with tea, where we have taster sessions of different handmade items.

Fellowship Lunches A simple lunch is served every other month for those who are feeling lonely and often eat alone.

At Harvest and Christmas, gifts are distributed to various groups in our community. Please get in touch if you know of a need in our community.

We work with other Methodist churches to support National and International charitable work including Mission in Britain and World Missions, Methodist Homes for the Aged, Action for Children, All We Can ,Shelter box, Christian Aid and the Francisco Rojas School in Peru.

We rent our premises to community groups to support a range of activities including Addiction Support Meetings and fitness classes.

We also enable Exeter Network Church to worship in our church Sunday afternoons and rent our premises for a range of community activites such as Breakfasts for the disadvantaged.
