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.

Complete Suspension

By Andrew Mumford

Regrettably, following instructions from the Methodist Church and from the Government, we have had to suspend all activities at Falmouth Methodist Church, and can no longer open for prayer at lunchtimes. We hope that all friends of FMC will continue to pray for those affected in one way or another by Covid-19.

Coronavirus

By Andrew Mumford

We have had to make the decision to cancel all services on these premises for the foreseeable future, in line with guidance from the Government and from the Methodist Church.

We will, however, we open for private prayer at lunchtimes on weekdays. Our Memorial Chapel (on the ground floor) will be available Monday to Friday 12noon until 20.00pm for anyone to come in spend some time in quiet.

Additionally, we are endeavouring to establish what needs within our Church community and within the wider society in which we live can be met by us.

Christmas Cracker

By Jo Walker

The Christmas cracker event on Saturday 7th December was a great success. There was a splendid stitchcraft stall; bric a brac and book stalls; as well as a warm welcome, hot drinks and food. Over £1100 was raised. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make it such a fun morning for those who came.
