Methodist Church

Ninfield Methodist Church, East Sussex

Ninfield Methodist Church, Church Lane,
Ninfield, Battle, East Sussex TN33 9JN.

The church building was erected during 1870 and 1871 as a Christian Mission and dedicated by William Booth in 1871. William Booth is better known as General Booth of the Salvation Army, which he later founded. His wife, Catherine, laid the foundation stone on Thursday, July 6th, 1871.

The church became a United Methodist Chapel in 1907 and on the occasion of the Methodist Union in 1932 three branches of the Methodist Church, the Wesleyan, the Primitive and the United joined to become one church denomination.

In 1958 the Church was extensively renovated. In 1979 a hall and kitchen were added and this was fully modernised in 2013. The hall is now a popular venue for many church and village activities.

News from Ninfield
July 2022

The Ninfield village celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend were a great success. We celebrated the reign of our longest serving monarch in British history; and we were able to participate in this unique occasion. 70 years is simply an incredible achievement!

We had a lovely Messy Church to start the weekend and our young people were busy making Jubilee people flags, Bible biscuits, Garden Party floral button-holes and Union Jack windmills. We enjoyed afternoon tea together and learnt about the history of a Jubilee.. A very happy time.

The Jubilee events were a credit to the village and brought people together in many different ways. The weekend was brought to a close with a ‘Songs of Praise’ service on the recreation ground with Reverend Paul Frostick and Reverend Tricia Williams and Hooe Silver Band… a ‘weekend to remember’.

In July we will say ‘Good-bye and thanks’ to Reverend Tricia who is retiring at the end of the month. We will also take part in a ‘thanks’ service at Little Common Methodist Church on July 24th. We are so grateful to Tricia and Dave for all their support to us at Ninfield and their involvement in our Messy Church. We wish them a very happy retirement.

Finally, we look forward to welcoming Reverend Dr David Hinchliffe (Chair of the District) to lead our worship on August 28th
