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.

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
As part of our Christian ministry we are committed to supporting the work of a different charitable organisation each month.
During September, we support the work of Stourbridge Street Pastors.
Stourbridge Street Pastors is part of a national team first pioneered in 2003, which aims to love, care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community.They are usually on patrol on Saturday evenings from 10pm till 4am, throughout the year.
Led by a local coordinator, they have support from local churches and community groups in partnership with the police, local council and other statutory agencies.
Stourbridge Street Pastors come from various local churches, all ages and all backgrounds. Several of our church members are part of the team.
The Street Pastors are supported by a prayer team which prays for both the pastors and the town of Stourbridge as the pastors are on patrol. New members of the Prayer Team are always needed, so please think seriously about whether this is something you could do, to help our local Street Pastors
Her Majesty the Queen awarded Stourbridge Street Pastors the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in her list of awards on 2nd June 2018, in recognition of the contribution the team have made to the safety, welfare and environment of Stourbridge during its 9 years of work.
