Hello, and welcome to the “Minister’s page” My name is Martin Slocombe, and I am the Minister for Chew Stoke Methodist Church and the  surrounding area. I live in Paulton, and also have pastoral charge of the Methodist churches in Paulton,Timsbury and Farrington Gurney (and all places in-between!). We are currently a small community of Methodists who continue worshiping together in our beautiful chapel, as generations before us have done for more than 200 years. Our aim is not only to be a physical reminder of the presence of God in this village, but to reach out to the community in practical ways as a living example of the love of God in action. Jesus reminds us of the central message of the gospel, to love God and our neighbours as ourselves. In witnessing to that gospel, both in Chew Stoke and the wider Chew Valley, through our work supporting our neighbours and engaging with the local Primary School, we endevour to share this message with a wider audience, helping to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to this area. Our Regular Sunday service is at 10.30am and is supplemented by a mid-week fellowship group and other activities throughout the year. Please keep an eye on the website for more details. I hope you find what you are looking for on our website, and look forward to welcoming you to visit us. The Revd Martin Slocombe Telephone 01761 411858 Email: martin.slocombe@methodist.org.
