What kind of a church are you looking for?
If it’s a perfect church you want, you’ve come to the wrong place. If you're looking for a sense of community, where people are enthusiastic, encouraging, constantly making mistakes but getting up to have another go, outward facing rather than inward looking… you might have found a church that suits you. Great Lumley Methodist Church wants Jesus to be at the centre.

We are evangelical in what we believe and contemporary in character - we aren't standing still. Somehow we manage to sustain a fellowship that includes traditional, charismatic and ‘sort of’ Roman Catholic types all at the same time. It works because God’s Spirit makes it work and makes relationships important. Fellowship is a big thing for us and so is the Bible and so is prayer.

Ages range from small babies to 90+ years with a balance of ages right through and we cater for them all. The focus of our Sunday morning services is family – so bring your children and relatives along with you at 10.30am. We don't mind a bit of noise. On Sunday evenings at 6.00pm, it's about word and worship for those who maybe want to go deeper into Bible truth.

The Methodist Church is at the heart of the former mining village of Great Lumley in County Durham and we are part of the Chester-le-Street Methodist Circuit.
