Public worship is held at Coniston weekly at 11am. Covid regulations are still observed: the congregation will be socially distanced and masks will be worn by all who are not exempt.
During the pandemic, we have found ways of sharing in worship by other methods, which still continue. Many useful links can be found on the "Thoughts for Sunday" page, which is being updated frequently.
For the latest information on this website, please refer to the Home page.
With my prayers and best wishes,
Rev'd Graham Ransom, Circuit Superintendent.
Coniston is a small rural village, set in the heart of the Lake District. The resident population of about 800 is greatly increased during the height of the holidays season by visitors seeking the peace and quiet of our fells and lakes, as well as the cultural attractions associated with this area.
Coniston Methodist Church is similarly small with congregations added to by our visitors who always receive a warm welcome; indeed, one couple told us that after 50 years of worshipping in Methodist churches ours was the warmest welcome they had ever received! Part of the welcome comes from our small chapel which, with its surrounding garden, is kept in immaculate condition.
The churches in Coniston all work well together through Christians Together in Coniston. Together we jointly employ a children and youth worker and hope that in the near future this will be extended to cover the whole breadth of our community. A regular Fair Trade Coffee morning has been another feature undertaken by all and this too is to be developed soon by way of caring for Coniston after Covid.
Joint services with other denominations are held several times a year (Covid restrictions allowing); amongst these we have held joint harvest services for a number of years. On September 26th our theme will be This is God’s World, focusing on our responses to the climate crisis.
We also do joint support for Christian Aid, raising more than £1300 in each of the last two Christian Aid Weeks (even during the pandemic), an average of more than £1.50 per head of population!
Sunday mornings at 11.00am
There are monthly pastoral and fellowship meetings.
