Steeple Ashton Methodist Church


Methodism in Steeple Ashton dates back to 1783 when people met in a labourer’s cottage and in 1797 several houses were licensed for meetings. In 1851 one room of a dwelling house was used exclusively for worship and in 1854 the Primitive Methodist Chapel, together with the adjoining cottages was built. The building was fitted out with new seating in 1914 with a capacity of 130. 

The latest changes were made in 1991 when the whole building was refurbished and extended to provide a multipurpose room, two meeting rooms, kitchen and toilets including facilities for the disabled. The premises are now used for Worship Services, meetings, retreats, painting classes and many more activities.


The church is located at:

Times of services

Our Church meets at 9:15 every Sunday.

Reflections and Fellowship

We meet on the second and fourth Wednesday in the month from 10:30 – 12 noon in the Douglas Room. We have a short time of fellowship, prayer and an uncomplicated Bible study which helps us to learn more about God’s Word; what it meant in Biblical days and how we can interpret it in our daily lives.


CAMEO (Come and Meet Each Other)

We run a group called CAMEO on Thursday afternoons from 2.30-4.00 pm at Steeple Ashton Methodist Church.

This is an opportunity for lonely people or carers to come for a break or bring their loved one for a chat and a cuppa. There is no charge and all are welcome.
