Worship and Fellowship

COVID 19 – The current lockdown restrictions impact on all our regular worship and fellowship activities. We look forward to once again meeting in our building. The information will be updated as soon as we are able to safely open up our building.

Sunday Service

All Sunday Services are Online. See Burscough Methodist Church on YouTube.

Our traditional Sunday worship and Sunday school, known as ‘Junior Church’, is at 10:00am each Sunday. Services are led by circuit ministers, local preachers and worship leaders – when we make our ‘own arrangements’. See our ‘News & Events‘ for more details of upcoming services. There is a family service every second Sunday of the month and a Holy Communion each month.

Our Junior Church is held on Sunday mornings 10am-11am and is open to all children. We provide a variety of fun activities including: Crafts, Baking, Art, Stories and Worship.

We begin in the church service for the first 10 or 15 minutes, sitting altogether in the children’s area where there are books, comfortable seats, baby mats etc. After the second hymn, we leave the main congregation to our own separate area. (The Upper Room). Each week is different and drinks & biscuits are served.

Our Junior Church members also have the opportunity to get involved in special services such as Easter, Sunday School Anniversary and Christmas as well as All-age worship.

2nd Sunday of the month is a a family service in Church in which we join the rest of the congregation.

4th Sunday of the month we have a Teen Zone meeting in which our older children go to a local cafe for hot drinks and chat.
