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.

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. 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.

Ministers Christmas Message

By Andrew Mumford

Dear friends

Imagine the situation…… A nation divided between the ‘have’s’ and the ‘have not’s’…. conflict ever present in society over different views about sovereignty…… a general distrust of foreigners…. people unsettled, angered, frustrated….. economically, things not going well…… a lack of trust in national leaders…a sense of hopelessness for the future……. a nation at odds with itself.…..and in the background, the threat of terrorism always lurking.

Variety Show

By Andrew Mumford

There was much hilarity and laughter during the evening of FMCs Variety Show, which took place on 15th November. The audience loved the children - from the Rainbows, the Guides and the Scouts and Cubs - with their songs, sketches and stories. We were wowed by the encyclopaedic knowledge of our Property Team of social media! Poems were recited by Moira and by Jean Northey, who reminded us of why ‘Albert and the Lion’ is such a favourite (especially when told with a Yorkshire accent!). The dramatisation of ‘Cinderella’ was a triumph, starring Andrew Whetter as Cinders.

Final Service at URC

By Andrew Mumford

On Sunday 27th October, we all made our way to Berkeley Vale for the final service of the United Reformed Church with Trinity Baptists. We have had a long association with the congregation there, and in recent years the links have grown closer. Of course, the building was a Methodist Church before the URC moved there, so there was a sense of great nostalgia for that occasion. In addition, the love we all had for Pat Whittaker, who died in the Spring, was in our minds throughout.
