A bit about us
At Chepstow Methodist Church we have the vision to be a “community centre with a worshipping heart”.
We are blessed with premises that are at the centre of town and right next to the bus station. This means we are well placed to serve Chepstow. Elsewhere on the website you will see our attempts to fulfil Jesus’s “call to love our neighbours” in practical meaningful ways. We aim to serve people from a wide range of ages and backgrounds through a variety of activities we run ourselves or by giving space to other groups.
We also are putting our faith in action by joining with other churches in initiatives such as the Christians Against Poverty Debt Centre and the Foodbank. We also recognise that we have neighbours around the world. Our responsibility to them is shown in our support for agencies such as Methodist Relief and Development and our involvement with the Triangle project – a partnership with friends in Kenya that is providing health and education for some of the poorest of the poor and also Hope in Christ School and Orphanage in Zambia. Our belief in a Creator God is demonstrated in our efforts to become an eco congregation. We honour the Creator by looking after creation.
However, activities in themselves do not create community; we believe that how we do things is as important as what we do. This is why we want to be a hospitable place, an including and accepting place where there is space for everyone. Relationships are at the heart of any attempt to be a centre of community.
Having a worshiping heart is what makes us a church. We hope that through the variety of services throughout the month people are able to develop and grow in their relationship with God. We believe in a living and loving God who is knowable to all. God is present at all times and all places, in worship and prayer we make ourselves present to God.
Having met God for ourselves we are eager to share the Good News with others. In particular as followers of Jesus we want to make Him known through word and deed that others might become followers too. Hopefully through all we do, and all we are, we show something of who God is and will become known in this place.
