Keyingham Methodist Chapel

Minister: Sister Denise Creed

Location: Ings Lane, Main Street KEYINGHAM HU12 9RD

To start the Methodist new year, we introduced a monthly informal midweek afternoon meeting of Praise and Worship, lasting for about thirty minutes, followed by sandwiches and cake. We hoped to attract people who found it difficult to attend morning worship or did not come to Church at all. We had no idea whether it would be successful. The first meeting in September, led by John, was attended by sixteen people, and in October, led by Mike, by seventeen people. We hope the word will spread so the meeting will continue to grow.

We were delighted when Deacon Chris agreed to come from Sunderland to take our Harvest Festival. Chris was a Local Preacher in the Withernsea Circuit, but left the area in 1988 and subsequently became a Deacon. To illustrate the ‘Harvest of Souls’, he paid tribute in his sermon to the love and support he had in this area. The service was followed in true Methodist tradition by a lunch of sausage and mash.

Last year, one of our stewards, Janice Milner, was inspired by a banner-making course with Sister Denise. Since then she has been making beautiful banners to accompany all the festivals of the church year which help to enhance worship.

The Church can be found in the centre of the village behind the War Memorial garden.

An up-to-date list of weekly activities is displayed in the window beside the front door.
