|Further information||Clayhanger Methodist Church was built in 1885 by the families of the local community.Standing alongside was a separate hall (wooden in structure) known as ‘The Hut’, originally an ex-army hut. This was used by Girls and Boys clubs, ladies groups and many others over the years. It was replaced in 1995 by a brick building, which was funded by the church and local people from a “Buy a Brick” scheme, etc. We are a small and friendly congregation and an enthusiastic hard working group of people and welcome all who wish to join us. Our “Team Spirit” fundraising group has worked hard over recent years to fund improvements to our Church Buildings , We are so grateful for the tremendous support and hard work from members and friends around the community,We invite friends to have a ‘Team Spirit’ collecting box which are emptied every 6 weeks or so at our ‘Team Spirit’ coffee mornings, if you would like a box then please contact Carol Hewlitt on 0543 454604. The future dates for coffee mornings with Pat and Carol at 53 Clayhanger Road .

Why not help to keep your chapel open by joining the Envelope scheme? Quite simply, by putting your Sunday collection in an envelope each week (whether you can attend or not) and bringing them when able to attend, will help to meet weekly costs of running the church.
Everyone can be part of the Envelope Scheme!
If you feel that you can help this way please let Carol Hewlitt know on 01543 454604 to order a set of Envelopes.
Once again we are reminded just how grateful we are to friends who help with this fundraising and ‘Team Spirit’ Collecting boxes
We look forward to seeing you at our future “Team Spirit” events and at our Services.
You can be sure of a warm welcome at Clayhanger.
