A church for all. Although we are a Methodist Church, as there is no other church in the village our membership comes from a variety of backgrounds - Anglicans and Catholics as well as Methodists and those with no particular denomination. 
This diversity is reflected in our spirituality, which draws on a wide range of Christian traditions. 
Our Sunday services vary from week to week - once a month we have a family service where all ages stay together; other weeks our children spend some time separately in their 'Sunday school'. We have communion around once a month, and every two months or so we have a 'cafe church', where we sit at tables and have coffee and buns as part of worship which tends to include videos and conversation.
As well as every Sunday, we also have a variety of short services on two Tuesday evenings a month, and the building is well-used for community activities during the week. 
You will find more information on all of this, and much more, in this website, so please come in and explore what we are about. 
We aim to serve the local community in whatever ways we can, as both a spiritual and a practical resource. 
The chapel provides a useful suite of community rooms which we make  available for community events such as the village fete and local history club exhibitions, and we hire out space for both regular clubs and meetings and one-off events and private parties. 
The chapel also hosts Blackshaw Parish Council's meetings and provides a performance space for Colden School.
In the porch is our Christmas manger, which is well-used all year round as the village's collection point for donations for two local food-banks.
The chapel is a spiritual base for celebrating and remembering all the landmarks of personal and civic life, and  provides further ministry to the community through its beautiful graveyard.

On the first Tuesday of each month there is a RC Mass celebrated at the chapel led by Fr. John Gott and members of the Good Shepherd RC Church. 

On the third Tuesday of each month there is ‘TT-7’ : a short (30 minutes) ‘alternative service’ led by us. 

These vary in form :

21st Aug : ‘Taize!’ music and meditation. 

 All are welcome to these services.
