Apart from Sunday Worship, the three things that define Elton chapel are tea, cake and flowers. To the casual onlooker this might seem quaint. But for us it is a gift of love lived out though faith and hospitality.
Our purpose is to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love, to help people to grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care, to be a good neighbour to people in need, to challenge injustice and to encourage people to follow Jesus Christ.
“I enjoy coming to Elton because the people are so positive and there is such a warm atmosphere about the place. The leaders have a real ‘can do’ attitude and have found creative ways of serving the village. For me, this Church demonstrates how small rural chapels can add real value to their local communities.”
The Methodist Church was founded by John Wesley, an Anglican Priest who felt called to reach out to those who were missing out on what the Church had to offer. One of the things that marked it out as different was how newcomers were gathered together in small-groups termed ‘classes’
Methodism is also distinctive in how its ministers are itinerant, travelling around a number of churches and supporting a network of local preachers and worship leaders who live and work alongside those who they serve.
