Kibworth Methodist Church

Kibworth Methodist Church

Kibworth Church is the second largest Church of Market Harborough Circuit within the Northampton District.

Services are held at 10.30am every Sunday, and there is also an all age worship service at 5.00pm during term times. A great deal of other activities are also held at the Church during the week, for more information please see the activities and events page, or view our Welcome Booklet.

Please note the church building will be out of action from Saturday 14th July - Saturday 1st September while new heating is installed. During this period, Sunday morning services will be held at the Well, 42 High Street, Kibworth. The service will start at the usual time of 10.30am and the preachers will be as listed on the notice sheet.

It has been decided that we will enter the Well the back way via the gate to the left of the Chapel building, though this may change if the workmen have lots of equipment in front of the Chapel. There will also be a notice on the Chapel door or the gate, depending on accessibility. Junior Church will also be held at the Well during the service.

It should be noted that this is a work in progress to bring our Chapel up to modern standards and phase two will start when we have sufficient funds to continue. I’m sure you will all agree that it will be worth it in the end. Your prayers for this project would be greatly appreciated.

We support The Well, a Christian prayer room and community centre with coffee shop, just round the corner from our building. For more information please see: The Well, Kibworth.

We have the facilities for our church services to be put on to CD. If you would like to receive a CD please contact Mike on 0116 279 2766.

This is a Fair Trade Church and Fair Trade products are used for refreshments and cleaning, including paper towels and toilet rolls etc. We encourage people who use the premises to help fight poverty by doing the same.

Location

The Chapel is situated on the left side of School Road, about 50 yards in off High Street.

Mission Statement

The Reason We Exist Is...

Based on Matthew 22: 37-40 and 28:19-20:

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the greatest commandment.

And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. On these commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

This can be summed up in Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works, and give glory to your Father in heaven.

Our Values Are...

Based on Galatians 5:22-23 and 1Corinthians 12:12-27

The fruit of the Spirit is love , joy, peace, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.

For just as the body is one and has many members and all the members, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For as in one Spirit, we were all baptised into the one body - Jews, Greeks, slaves or free - and we were all made to drink of the one Spirit...
