What We Do

Falmouth Methodist Church - Fulfilling our Mission in the Community

Worship

Every Sunday at 10.30am there are services. Normally these are held in the main worship area upstairs. On the first Sunday of each month we meet at 10.00am for breakfast, then divide into a traditional service, held in the Memorial Chapel, and Café Worship, which takes place in the Wesley Hall. On all other Sundays, tea and coffee are served downstairs after the service. Our Memorial Chapel is open most days for private prayer. You can also watch our services on YouTube.

Outreach and Service

We are a collection point for the local Foodbank. The town’s Street Pastors are based at the church and go out on Friday and Saturday nights. Our building is used by other organisations and services, for example, for counselling and for local choirs, Guides and Cubs. We respond to need in the world through our giving, and, as an example, during Lent 2019, we raised enough for 3 emergency tents (around £1,000) for Shelterbox under their ‘Tent for Lent’ scheme. Coffee mornings are held during the week, which offer friendship as well as refreshment.

Learning

Bible Study is held fortnightly on a Thursday afternoon in the Memorial Chapel. There are other groups that meet regularly in people’s homes.

Other Links

We are part of the Falmouth and Gwennap Methodist Circuit and are enthusiastic members of Falmouth and Penryn Churches Together and participate in their activities and meetings. Several FPCT activities are held on our church premises.

Regeneration

Currently, we are embarking on an ambitious Regeneration Project that will bring our buildings up to date and make them fit for use in the 21st Century. We hope to complete the scheme in three main phases over a period of about 5 years. The cost will be over £1,000,000, which we are trying to find through grants as well as local fundraising. We are taking the opportunity to see where God is leading us in regenerating ourselves as a church to serve the needs of the people of the town in the future.

Our Church Community

We are a gathered church. Few members of our congregation live within easy walking distance, and some live in surrounding villages. We seek to offer a style of worship that is accessible to a wide variety of people, with high quality music led by our organist or our Café Worship band. We are seeking to be an outward looking church, ever mindful of the community outside our doors.

Our congregation covers a wide age-range, and all are made to feel welcome.

Our Services and Events

Falmouth Methodist Church is a church that is well established in the local community and rooted in its history. It values that heritage. However, it is also a church for today, seeking to serve the needs of the present-day people of Falmouth, and to be a living presence in the civic hub of the town.

I am the bread of life...Harvest

By Sarah Smith

The church beautifully decorated with a range of colourful floral arrangements, windows filled with tinned goods and packets of food for the local Food Bank and artificially created vegetables made by Tracy and co, real ones not being permissible this year, our socially distanced Harvest service began.

A psalm for FMC

By Sarah Smith

For our first 'Alternative' Service, we created a psalm for today (see below). After listening to Psalm 80, we thought about aspects of FMC that we valued from its past and present, things that we regret about our church, and our concerns for the church and society. Animated discussion took place (socially distanced, of course!), and the feedback was collated by Deacon Jane, who transformed the comments into a modern-day psalm.

First service at FMC following lockdown
06 Sep

See I am doing a new thing......

By Sarah Smith

With some things remarkably familiar and some things quite different we gathered today for the first service back in our church building since lockdown. With at least two chairs between each of us the service began. Hymns were played beautifully by David our organist, but no one sang. Andrew our Minister had to guess if people were smiling at him as we were all wearing face masks. And we offered a friendly wave to each other instead of shaking hands as a sign of the peace during a socially distanced communion.
