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 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.

Monthly Collections

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

During March we are supporting the work of the Missionary Aviation Fellowship (‘MAF’).

Millions of people cannot access basic medical care, clean water, schools or receive the good news of God’s love, simply because it’s too dangerous or time-consuming to reach them. MAF responds to this need by flying medical, relief and life-transforming help to vulnerable people in hard-to-reach places.

In today’s ‘connected world’, the irony is that never have so many people been so isolated. Many remote communities have never heard the Gospel and are living in spiritual darkness.

When natural disasters, conflict or famine strike hard-to-reach places, an aircraft may be the only safe way to reach the people on the ground. If a person has a medical emergency and the nearest hospital is a few days walk or an uncomfortable drive on rough roads, their prognosis is poor.

For over 70 years, MAF has been flying light aircraft over jungles, mountains, swamps and deserts. It provides flights for 2,000 aid, development and mission organisations to enable then to bring medical care, emergency relief, long-term development and Christian hope to thousands of communities.

MAF believes nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are. MAF’s vision is to see ‘isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name.’ It uses aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people in need.

Every four minutes an MAF plane is taking off or landing somewhere in the world to help eliminate the barriers to physical and spiritual transformation. Where MAF once ferried individual missionaries between remote locations, it now flies passengers and cargo for more than 2,000 partner organisations, transforming the lives of impoverished people worldwide.

It’s a Christian adventure unlike any other.

We are delighted to welcome a speaker from MAF to our service on Sunday, 8th March at 10.00am. Please come along and hear about the fascinating and vital which MAF carries out.

You can support the work of MAF throughout March using the envelopes in church, or at any time via the website MAF

Donations are co-ordinated by Mary Grant.
