Ainsdale Methodist Church Exterior


Ainsdale Methodist Church is situated in the thriving village of Ainsdale. Over the last generation the village of Ainsdale has grown immensely and the Church at Ainsdale has welcomed many new faces and people who have moved to the village, either to retire or to commute to their work in Manchester, Liverpool or Southport. As a Church we try very hard to cater for both our members and the community. We like to think one of our flagship achievements was the launch of Ainsdale Community Care by a team of dedicated Church members and friends in the 1980's which now has a thriving membership of over 300, a staff base of four and nearly 100 volunteers. Ainsdale Community Care continues to operate from the Church premises although since 2008 it has been a charity in its own right. Ainsdale Community Care Scheme works in a variety of ways, with a number of activities through the day including a Luncheon Club serving around 300 meals a week, Monday to Friday, with meals being taken out to housebound members and friends. The aim of Ainsdale Community Care is to provide support, care and friendship for as many people as possible. The Church continues to support Ainsdale Community Care.

Through the week there is a mixed programme of activities run by the Church which includes uniformed organisations for young people, ie Guides and Boys Brigade, regular Bible Studies, as well as interest groups for women such as the Eight O'Clock Group. The Church runs the Welcome Centre every Wednesday morning for members and friends to drop in and share in coffee and light refreshments. The Church also has a Vocal Group, and is the home of Octave, the ecumenical singing group of Churches Together in Ainsdale. There is also a regular monthly Prayer Meeting on the first Wednesday of the month.

As you can see from the above we run a wide and varied programme and believe we are a welcoming, encouraging Church with always room for more members and friends.
