Refurbishment of Sanctuary

We believe that our primary purpose is to proclaim the Kingdom of God, and this involves being part of our local community as well as worship on Sundays.

Our activities therefore include new opportunities for people otherwise on their own to meet and share, and long standing coffee mornings open to the community; we host a growing group of Guides and Brownies, and our premises are used by other organisations.

However, our premises were not well suited to the growing level of activity, so we have undertaken a major  refurbishment of the sanctuary:

* to provide a modern and welcoming ‘worship area’

* to serve the increasing local community needs for social interaction

* to improve disabled access, and external visual appearance 

* to reduce the carbon footprint

 

Celebration of Completion, and Dedication, Service.

We are pleased to invite all to a service of celebration and dedication on Saturday 30th September, at 1500. The preacher will be Rev Gill Newton, Chair of Sheffield Methodist District, and the service will be followed by refreshments.

The service will give an opportunity to thank all who have contributed in any way, and for all to celebrate with us a new chapter in the life of Hasland Methodist Church and its role in the centre of the local community. 

A significant part of the funding has been raised locally, but we are also indebted to the Chesterfield Methodist Circuit, the Sheffield Methodist District, and the Methodist Church nationally for support. Without all of them, the work would not have been possible.

 

 

 

History

There has been a Methodist presence in Hasland since the 1830’s. There used to be two Methodist Churches in Hasland. The Primitive Methodist Chapel was located on Chapel Lane East. It moved to new premises on Hasland Road in 1901. The Wesleyan Methodist Church was located on the Green. The Primitive and Wesleyan strands came together in the early 20th Century and they continued to worship in the Primitive Methodist building and worship continues here to this day.

 

 

We have two worship services on a Sunday as well as numerous church and community groups that meet on the premises or in people’s homes.

We seek to be a church that offers a warm welcome to anyone who comes through the door for any reason.

We are part of the Chesterfield Methodist Circuit, a group of Methodist churches which covers an area across Chesterfield. We are also part of the Sheffield Methodist District and the British Methodist Church.
