Ninfield   Christchurch Methodist Church

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
May 2023

We have enjoyed some amazing services including Messy Church over the Eastertime which have been so uplifting and encouraging. Thanks to everyone who helped to make it all 'special.'

We look forward to celebrating the Coronation with a Family Café worship on Sunday 7th May 2023. A warm invitation to all.

Our own Messy Church in May will look at a famous quote by John Wesley. He said:

'Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.'

These are some amazing words and can be an inspiration to the way we try and live today. We will look forward to sharing some of these thoughts with our young people.

On Sunday May 14th the President of the Methodist Conference, the Reverend Graham Thompson will be leading a service at 4.00 pm at Winchelsea Methodist Chapel. As you will know this small gem is a lovely historic chapel in our area, has its own special atmosphere of peace, and still has the pulpit from which John Wesley preached. The early history of Methodism in South-East Sussex starts in 1756 and after this John Wesley made many visits to the area from 1758. His first very successful visit to Winchelsea was on 30 October 1771, arriving on foot to preach to "a considerable number of people".

Do come along and worship with us whenever you wish .... We will be pleased to welcome you.
