Welcome to the website of Holmfirth Methodist Church where you can find out about our mission and our place in the community.
Holmfirth Methodist Church is an active Church with events taking place on most days to which everyone is welcome. Our vision is “To establish a church community where people are loved and welcomed and where the power of Jesus is witnessed in changed lives.”
We are situated in the centre of Holmfirth, in School Street at one end of Crown Bottom Car Park.
We have 83 members supported by 13 Pastoral Visitors. We have five worship leaders assisted by their teams and our worship is further enhanced by media projection, a choir and musicians. In worship we cater for all ages with Junior Church and a crèche if required. We are fortunate to have three Local Preachers and one Local Preacher on Trial among our members.
