St. Erth Methodist Church.
The Methodist Church is committed to
safeguarding as an integral part of its life and ministry.
Safeguarding is about the action the Church takes to promote a
safer culture. This means we will:
Promote the welfare of children, young people and adults.
Work to prevent abuse from occurring.
Seek to protect and respond well to those
that have been abused.
We will take care to identify where a
person may pose a risk to others, and offer support to them
steps to mitigate such risks.
The Methodist Church affirms that
safeguarding is a shared responsibility. Everyone associated
with the Church
who comes into contact with children, young people and adults
has a role to play.
This is supported with consistent policies promoting good practice across the whole Church. The Church and its individual members undertake to take all appropriate steps to maintain a safer environment for all. It will practise fully and positively Christ’s ministry towards children, young people and adults who are vulnerable and respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.
Everybody is welcome to attend our services which are held every Sunday in the Chapel at 11 am and led by a visiting preacher, with Holy Communion held monthly. Young children can attend the St. Erth Methodist Church Sunday School 'Lasers'.
We have a mixed age range from the very young to the very old, and joining the local Cornish congregation are members from various parts of the country. Come dressed as you are as there is no formal dress code.
Everybody is very welcome and on occasions we have had a very well behaved dog. After the service there is always a cup of tea or coffee and biscuit so that we can get to know each other better.
Extra services are held on the usual Church festivals and in addition Messy Church will be held in St. Erth Methodist Church.
Messy Church is held on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The dates for 2020 are Sunday 19th Jan; Feb 16th; Mar 15th; Apr 19th; May 17th; Jun 21st; Jul 19th; Sept 20th; Oct 18th; Nov 16th.
This is free event for all the family with fun, craft, games, short worship and food from 4-6 pm. It is especially designed to help young families who want to belong to their local Church but cannot cope with the traditional Sunday morning Church services.
