We are a Fairtrade church which means we have committed to:
• Use Fairtrade tea and coffee for all meetings for which we have responsibility
• Move forward on other Fairtrade products (such as sugar, biscuits, chocolate and fruit)
• Promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year through events, worship and other activities where possible
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 has evolved from the Wives Group. We hope the new name sounds more inviting and inclusive. We meet on alternate Tuesday evenings 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.
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 or view our poster.

Our Saturday morning film club goes
from strength to strength. It is open to children aged from 5 to 9
years of age. We meet once a month on Saturday morning from 10.15am to 12.15pm and show a
children's film. Parents can either stay and watch the film with us or
leave the children in our care whilst they go shopping or have a coffee.
Recent films have included Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Nanny McPhee, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and Hugo,

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.
• Methodist Relief and Development Fund 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.
• 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 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.
• Surrey Churches Preservation Trust which seeks to stimulate interest in Surrey churches and to make grants for their repair and conservation. We participate in their annual ‘Ride and Stride’ event.
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
• Barn dance
Finally our biggest annual event is the Christmas Shop 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.
