We aim to create a friendly Christian atmosphere for learning and fellowship.
On Sunday mornings children are part of the church congregation at the beginning of worship before moving to their own session. There are a range of toys and games, crafts, activities and stories to help children explore faith and the basics of Christianity. Children are looked after by a rota of friendly volunteers. On mornings with communion, children join in at the end of the service.
Every couple of months there are special all age services when everyone meets together in the church for the whole service.
During term-time our Tiny Crafters meet in the church. Pre-schoolers and their carers enjoy a mix of crafts, toys and singing.
At Splodge, our holiday club, under 8’s and their carers have fun mornings of activities and crafts with story time and drinks. Look out for details of Splodge on the events page.

We are a Fairtrade church which means we have committed to:
We have made this commitment as part of our concern for justice in God’s world.
Fairtrade helps provide better prices, good working conditions for farmers and workers so they can maintain reasonable and respectable livelihoods whilst caring for the environment.
We have a range of Fairtrade products for sale after services each Sunday and at other appropriate events.

Model Railway Club
One of the newest activities available at the church is Molesey Model Railway Society. Welcoming complete beginners as well as old hands, they meet every Sunday afternoon.
Methodist Friends meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 8pm in Room 1 of the Church Halls at East Molesey Methodist Church. We enjoy listening to speakers on a variety of topics and trying new skills. Perhaps most of all though it’s good to meet people and share friendships.
In between the evening meetings we get together at local cafes at 11am on Tuesdays once a month.
During the winter months we prefer to meet locally for lunch or coffee. Similarly during the school summer holidays we arrange weekly coffee evenings in member’s homes.
Everyone is very welcome, so look through the programme and if something interests you please come along. We are a small friendly bunch and would love to see you.
Please refer to the 'Events' section for details of our meetings for the next few months.

Fund Raising Group
We are a small group within the church that coordinates fundraising activities in support of other charities and church projects.
The group was first formed to raise funds for the refurbishment of our church. When that was successfully completed in 2001 we decided to put our energy, and the skills and opportunities that we had built up, towards fundraising for causes that reflected our concern for God’s world.
Our primary role is therefore to raise money for charitable causes and church projects. We also organise events that bring the church family together socially and show a presence in the community.
Funds raised for church projects have included refurbishment of the kitchen and toilets in the church halls and new chairs for the halls. The external causes that we have raised funds will have some link to the Methodist Church in general or our church in particular. Examples include:
• Action for Children which supports and speaks out for the UK's most vulnerable and neglected children and young people.
• All We Can which exists to bring about significant and long term change in some of the world's most marginalised communities and to empower people to change structures that are oppressive and unjust.
• Baby Basics and The Extra Mile are two projects lead by other churches in our circuit that support new mothers and young children. We have raised funds and helped collect donations.
• Phakamisa which strives to offer a hand up to people from impoverished communities in the Pinetown area of South Africa, reaching out particularly to children whose lives have been affected by the impact of HIV/AIDS. Our link to Phakamisa is through our former minister, Rev Peter Clark, and several of our congregation have visited the project.
• Railway Children which works with children living on the streets in East Africa, India and the UK. Our link to Railway Children is that the founder has historical links to our church.
• Richmond Fellowship, Elmbridge CAN, Post Pals and others who we have been privileged to support in a small way.
The sorts of events and activities that we have organised include:
• Carnival stalls serving light refreshments and selling cakes or Fairtrade goods
• Concerts with renowned performers such as the Weybridge Male Voice Choir
• Film nights to share a meal of fish and chips and watch a film
• Other events such as barn dances, quiz nights and book fairs
Finally our biggest annual event is the Christmas Market which is held on a Saturday in November each year with a range of stalls offering craft goods, jams, cakes, bulbs and more. We also offer delicious lunches and there are games and activities too. For the last few years this has been held in combination with the Molesey Model Railway Society exhibition which shows off their layouts and intricate models.
