Glastonbury Methodist Church
Lambrook Street, Glastonbury BA6 8BY
We are a friendly and welcoming congregation whose worship is varied but generally on the more traditional side. We meet at 10:45am on a Sunday for a morning service, which once a month includes holy communion. This is traditionally followed by coffee and conversation (currently suspended under government guidelines). We also gather on a Wednesday at 10:30am for half an hour of silent prayer. On occasion other special activities such as Café Services or evening Reflective services are held. These are announced in the Church notices and on the Facebook page. We love to share meals together and welcome folk into our warm fellowship.
Glastonbury Methodist Church members are involved with and support Glastonbury Bridging the Gap foodbank. Our community outreach also includes links with Jasmine, Willcox Close MHA (see below), and Glastonbury Care Home.
Where possible we engage in other activities online or in person to learn, pray and support others as well as having fun. Please check out our Facebook page for more details about what is going on at the moment and message us there if you have any questions.

The Church has a long established relationship with the MHA sheltered housing scheme of eleven flats and seven bungalows at Willcox Close in Glastonbury.
As the result of a legacy from a local GP, Dr Willcox, the Scheme was built in 1972 and run by a local firm of solicitors with a group of trustees. It was understood however, that if ever the Scheme could no longer be looked after by its original management then it was to be given to MHA. That handover took place in December 2004.
MHA run two Services for older people who live in their own homes, a Monday Lunch Club and one to one befriending.
