Welcome to Horsforth Grove & Central Methodist Church Website

The Grove (as we usually call it) is located in the centre of Horsforth set just back from Town Street. For the past 150 years we have been very much part of  Horsforth community life and still are today.

Central Chapel 'Prims' is located on the original chapel site (Built in 1846 - Now demolished) higher up Horsforth Town Street opposite the Horsforth Library (Mechanics Institute) which now also incorporates the Leeds City Council 'Hub' facilities.

We are always ready to welcome new friends to The Grove and Central & invite you to join us in worship or in the many other activities we offer.

Do have a look at our website to find more about who we both are,what we are about and what we might be able to offer to you and to the community.

Worship Suspended - Coronavirus

In light of guidance given by the Government and the Methodist Church nationally we are sorry to announce that all public worship is suspended until further notice.

On the next few pages we have produced a list of resources people may find helpful for private prayer and worship. There are also some resources for families to use with children.

Rev Mark Godfrey says if anyone would like to contact him about anything he is happy to be contacted by email: - revmgodfrey@gmail.com or phone 0113 258 2678.

Prayer at 11:00am daily

The Bible Fellowship Group invites you to join them daily, in your home, at 11:00am , to pray for the world and each other at this time. We pray or meditate on scripture for 20 - 30 minutes and finish with The Grace. Chris has written a few notes to assist our Bible reading which can be found below:

This week's passage is Psalm100

Hymn STF 20 - 'Be still, for the presence of the Lord'
