Methodist Church in Salisbury

Fred Rowe visited Salisbury Methodist Church last week for a cup of coffee.

It was quite busy as two non-church organisations were meeting on the premises. It's a lovely church and they must have a fairly large congregation with morning and evening services every Sunday and an extra 8am Holy Communion once a month. However, the main concern of the lady who served Fred's coffee was about the ageing of the congregation with very few younger ones coming in. Apparently, the other Methodist Church nearest to them has recently closed down. So very sad.

Fred believes the comment he heard last year — "God hasn't finished with us yet" — but asks what are we doing to ensure his church will remain?

Do you have ideas for welcoming new members to the Methodist community?
