Gainsborough is part of the Wolds and Trent Circuit, a number of Methodist churches throughout the region. Ministers and Local Preachers follow a preaching plan, leading services at different churches on different weeks.
To discover who is leading services this Month, then please find the Preaching Plan on the Resources page.
Sunday Morning Service.
The service begins at 10:30am and combines both traditional and contemporary worship.
There is not necessarily a rigid set structure to the service, often it will include a greeting and opening prayer, time for people to greet each other, scripture readings, an offering, the Lord's Prayer, a sermon, special music and hymns, and a closing prayer.
Communion may also be served. All are invited to celebrate communion, but you can choose whether or not you wish to participate.
Sunday school for the children is available during the service every week.
Cafe Church takes part on the last Sunday of the month at 7pm.
This is a more informal type of meeting that is interactive and based around food and fellowship.
We look at topics that are related to the life experiences of those we are trying to reach, namely young people who are totally un-churched.
Cafe Church aims to reflect God's love for all unconditionally, meaning that everyone is welcome. Overall it is an exploration of faith, Christian discipleship and worship.
Prayer is God's initiative, a gift which enables us to be attentive to the presence of God in our lives and in the world.
It is also a means of expressing what we believe about God and can prompt us to act to change the world as we respond to God's love.
Monthly Prayer Group
A prayer group is held each month at the Church. As a community it provides an opportunity to give praise and thanks to God for what he has done in our lives both individually and as a body, and to bring our needs and aspirations before him.
Circuit Prayer Network
The Circuit Prayer Network is a means by which requests of Pastoral concern can be relayed to those who have expressed a desire to pray in this way.
Prayer requests are passed on by E-mail, or by Phone if you prefer.

One of the hallmarks of faith is generosity. Giving can be a rewarding part of worship, especially if the gift is for a worthy cause.
Alongside our regular weekly offering to aid the work of the church, members of our community support a number of charitable organisations and groups - both locally and internationally - providing funds, volunteering their time and offering practical help to others.
Should you be interested in offering your support to any of these charities then please speak to the relevant church member.
