The Joseph Web Hall
If you wish to book the hall please contact:
Mickleton has close links with Nechells Methodist church in Birmingham and with Redditch Methodist Church. Members join us to celebrate Harvest each year for a Harvest tea, followed by a Songs of Praise service to which all are welcomed. This year our offering was given to the circuit charity, Restore, helping refugees. We also hold joint
services on a regular basis with our Anglican friends at St Lawrence's.
The Garden Church
Minister: Rev Ros
Located in the centre of Mickleton opposite the Three Ways Hotel, a Methodist chapel has been here for well over a hundred years. Our focus is to worship God and care for our neighbours near and far. In addition to the Sunday morning service our weekly fellowship meets on Thursdays at 2.30pm. Open House - a bible-based interdenominational discussion group meets at 10.30am on the second Wednesday of each month.
The hall, adjacent to the Methodist Church is available for hire for regularly or occasionally or for one-off events such as children’s parties, or funeral teas. The hall was originally built as a ‘Band of Hope’ meeting place, mostly by Methodists, to encourage people to be teetotal. A legacy from those days is that alcohol cannot be consumed on virtually all Methodist premises. Even our communion wine has to be non-alcoholic!
It is now equipped with a large wall mounted screen, blackout blinds and a projector stand.
Whether you are
a local resident, a visitor staying with friends or on holiday in the
Cotswolds, you can always be sure of a warm welcome at
Mickleton Prayer Chain
The chain of daily prayer for those facing difficulties continues to operate. Details given to us remain confidential but can be as little as a name, or a situation. New members of the chain will be welcomed. If you wish to ask us to pray for anyone, please contact the Minister.
We are committed to being good stewards of God's creation and are doing what we can to step lightly on the Earth. We recycle batteries and mobile phones, collect spectacles to go to Africa and used stamps to raise funds for a local wildlife project. We have signed up to Good Energy and are supporting the generation of fossil free energy from renewables such as wind and solar.

Mickleton Methodist Prayer
Loving God, may we fulfil our calling as your people, living out the values of the gospel among our neighbours. Breathe intous your Spirit so that we can share your love with those we meet in our daily lives. We pray that new people may continue to come into our church and find here a place of welcoming love where together we can experience the eternal truths of your Kingdom.
Grant us the insights and the strength we need to make our church a place where strangers become friends and companions on the path of faith. Show us how to work with other Christians in this village so that together we may reveal your love. We ask our prayer in the name of Jesus, the risen Lord.
“ The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.” Søren Kierkegaard
" Bibles that are falling apart are usually owned by peope who aren't ".
The trouble is, we won't let God help us
