Pitsmoor Methodist Church is looking for new premises

Pitsmoor Methodist Church on the corner of Christchurch Road and Burngreave Road has been home to a joint congregation of Methodist Christians for over 40 years and is now looking for new, smaller premises.

Built in the early 1970s Burngreave Methodist Church has now become too big for the present congregation and its activities. It is also in need of refurbishment. The adjoining housing association dwellings are now empty and their future remains undecided.

The worshipping congregation has decided to ask the Methodist Church to put the building up for sale and we are hoping that more suitable premises within the Pitsmoor/Burngreave area may be found, either to buy or rent. We hope to continue our worship and other activities and to develop new enterprises.

Our current weekly activities are Sunday Worship at 10:30am, elderly and vulnerable people’s lunch club at 11:30am on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Home Fires Craft Group on Wednesdays. On the first Monday in the month we have Nosh and Natter between 12-2pm, and a coffee morning is also held monthly on a Thursday. We have also put on occasional special events such as murder mysteries and dances.

Our two large halls with a kitchen and smaller rooms remain available for hire.

We are a small group of ageing but committed people looking to continue in this area and willing to work with others to do God’s will. If anyone can offer us any ideas we would be very grateful. Anyone interested in trying any of our activities would also be very welcome, please contact Pam and John Eaton on 0114 243 5333.
