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.

Lent Cross 1

Lent Cross

By Administrator

In 2019, for the first time, FMC marked the six Sundays of Lent with a Lent Cross Liturgy. On each Sunday, a short reading and prayer were accompanied by singing a couple of songs, and a new item was added to the cross. Over the season, the following items were added to the bare cross:

Bowl and towel (representing Jesus washing his disciples’ feet)

Money bag (representing the money Judas received)

Whip (representing the cruelty of the torture of Jesus)

Bread and wine (representing Last Supper)

Tent for Lent 1

Tent for Lent

By Administrator

Early in the new year, FMC was contacted by the locally-based charity Shelterbox to ask if we would be one of a group of churches piloting their new initiative ‘Give a Tent for Lent’. The Leadership Team considered it and thought it would be worthwhile. The challenge of raising enough money to provide for a tent (£317) seemed within reach. The slogan ‘a tent for Lent’ seemed to have a good ring to it, and it made a change from giving something up (like chocolate!) for the 40 days before Easter.
