About Us

Welcome to Kinver Methodist Church. We are a welcoming community with Jesus at the centre. We aim to worship Him together and draw others to love and follow Him.

Kinver is a large village in South Staffordshire, bordered by Shropshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands conurbation. Over 7,000 people live in the village which is famous for the Holy Austin Rock Houses and Kinver Edge, both of which are owned by The National Trust.

The Church itself is located at the Potters Cross end of Kinver Village, within easy walking distance of the High Street and Kinver Edge.

Charitable Giving


Traidcraft

Traidcraft aims to fight poverty through trade, helping people in developing countries to transform their lives. It was established in 1979 as a Christian response to poverty and is the UK’s leading fair trade organisation. At Kinver Methodist Church we support this organisation and products can be bought & ordered after our Sunday morning services each week.

“For the whole law can be summed up in this one command love your neighbour as yourself” – Galatians 5:14

Monthly Collections

As part of our Christian ministry we are committed to supporting the work of a different charitable organisation each month.

During July we will be supporting the work of Action for Children (AfC).

Action for Children’s vision is that every child and young person in the UK has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive. Action for Children does this by working closely with children and their families, from before they’re born until their twenties.

Its work is split into three main areas:

  1. Best start in life

AfC knows how important the early years are: from parenting advice to education and early intervention, it focuses on improving children’s life chances.

  1. Good mental health

AfC’s mental and emotional well-being experts work with families and schools to make sure children and parents feel able to cope with challenges when they arise.

  1. A safe and loving home

AfC makes sure more children feel part of a family that cares for them. It finds homes for those without, protect children who have been abused or neglected, and helps ensure young carers don’t miss out on a childhood.

AfC has been changing children’s lives for 150 years and last year, AfC helped more than 387,000 children and their families in the UK.

You can support the work of AfC during July through the envelopes in Church, or at anytime by donating via the AfC website Action for Children

Donations are coordinated by Suzanne Smith.
