Sunday Services

We are now meeting for informal worship at 10.30am each Sunday.  All are very welcome but please bring a mask, sanitise your hands and observe social distancing. 


Anglican services are continuing using the bigger churches in the parish. There is a service of Holy Communion at 10.30am each Sunday, usually in Westow on the first Sunday in the month, and at Settrington on the other Sundays.


See events page for more information.

The church remains open daily for private prayer or reflection.

We are 200 years old!

The first Methodist chapel in Leavening was opened in 1820.  Click here to watch our anniversary service.

Food Bank

Donations for the Food Bank may be left in the church kitchen when it is open, or may be put in the box in the family room of the Jolly Farmers.  The lower door to the pub is open most days, so you can go in there to get to the box.

Leavening Methodist Church is a small group of Christians from the village of Leavening and the surrounding villages.  In ordinary times we meet for worship most Sundays, but at present we communicate using phone, email and printed information.  We work closely with our friends from the Anglican Church and share their church building.  We are part of  Ryedale Methodist Circuit.
