Our church has about 50 members who meet regularly for worship and fellowship, to find out about Jesus Christ and to explore and deepen their faith.
We are a part of the Wantage and Abingdon Circuit, which is the section of The Methodist Church of Great Britain covering most of the south of Oxfordshire - for more details click "Circuit webpage" above.
We are also a member of the Wantage and Grove Church Partnership - for details click "Links" above.
The church is situated at Main Street, GROVE OX12 7JY - in the centre of the village, at the junction of Main Street with Vale Avenue, opposite the doctors’ surgery. We extended our premises in 2011 and encourage their use by other groups in the community - for details, click "Bookings" above
Not the church, just the website! Following the launch of a new website for Wantage Methodist Church (click here,) the Wantage & Abingdon Circuit has commissioned a new website from the same source. It's now up and running:
Please have a look. In particular, look at the Grove page under Churches. The plan is to use this as a replacement for the GroupSpaces site, which has served us at zero cost for several years but is no longer fit for our purpose.
No date has yet been fixed when this site will be shut down, but it is no longer being updated with new events and information.
The two chaplains appointed - Sarah Ifill, a member at Wallingford Methodist Church, and Libby Hawkness-Smith, an Anglican - have been commissioned at an inspiring service at Milton. The motorhome, christened "Hope" which will provide a mobile base for the chaplains, was blessed at the same service. Decorated with very professional logos, "Hope" will be a visible sign of the Chaplains' presence and allegiance as they serve the community and forge links across GWP.
