Hasland Methodist Church
Refurbishment of Sanctuary
We believe that we should serve our local community, and our activities include ‘crafty chit chat’ where people otherwise on their own can meet and share; regular coffee mornings open to the community; and we host a growing group of Guides and Brownies. However, the welcome increase in activity at Hasland means that we have outgrown the premises in their present layout.
In response, we are refurbishing 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
Work has just begun, and details are being included on the ‘News and events’ page.

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.
