Craven Arms Methodist Chapel

Craven Arms Methodist Chapel is part of the Central Area of the Shropshire and Marches Methodist Circuit. For information about service times, view the preaching plans on the Service Times page. Information about ministers can be found on the Our Team page.

We are a small, traditional congregation. Our members are drawn from farming stock in the Corvedale valley, from Craven Arms and local villages and we also have a number of ‘recent arrivals’. Our church is strategically placed in the centre of Craven Arms and regularly attracts visitors to the area who are warmly welcomed. We have an attached hall and meeting room with kitchen and disabled facilities which is well used by local organizations; two weekly day centres for older and disabled folk and various other groups.

We have close contacts with Stokesay and Halford Anglican churches; we meet regularly to plan joint worship and share weekly Lent lunches. Churches Together meets in Craven Arms; Methodists, Anglicans and Evangelicals.

Some Methodists support The South Shropshire Interfaith Forum which organizes meetings and events with members in our Muslim community.

We have recently begun to serve coffee after morning service, which is well supported. We have an up to date public address system in church and hall with hard-of-hearing loop in all areas, and a mixture of static and radio microphones.
