Market Harborough Methodist Church is the Circuit Church of Market Harborough Circuit within the Northampton District.
A warm welcome awaits for worship every Sunday at 10:15 am, with occasional additional services at other times (please see the Circuit Plan for details). The services are led by our Circuit ministers and Local Preachers, with a healthy mix of modern and traditional styles. Activities are available for children of school age, and a Creche is provided for pre-school children, so that parents can be part of the congregation if they wish. Services will last approximately 1 hour, with a little bit longer if it's Holy Communion (approximately monthly).
This church believes:
- Everyone matters to God
- Everyone is welcome here
- Jesus came for everyone
- Everyone can grow in God’s love
We are a family of faith, hope and love, welcoming all to share in exploring and celebrating what it means to be people of God, following Jesus Christ. Whatever your age, background or orientation; whatever stage you are in your faith, you will find a welcome among us.

To help us do this properly and thoroughly, we have regular training for those who lead groups and activities, we are diligent about official checks, and we have appointed Safeguarding officers who can be contacted at any time (as well as the Minister):
- Maggie and Neil Hadkiss, Tel: 01858 431665
- Christine Hodgson, Tel: 01858 467666
