About West Lane Methodist Church & Grimshaw Centre
Christian worship has been held on this site since the 18th century. As well as Sunday worship our building also has a large hall & smaller rooms for hire. These are available for children`s parties & fund raising activities but alcohol is not permitted. At present we are playing host to the congregation of St Michael and All Angels Parish church who have had to move out temporarily while roof repairs are carried out. We are alternating Methodist and Anglican services on Sundays at 10.30am. More informal worship on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month is suspended until August because of staffing problems in the Airedale circuit. We are situated in West Lane opposite the Old Sun Hotel and the building is a former Wesleyan day school so doesn`t look much like a church! West Lane is the road on the left hand side of the Tourist Information Centre in Main Street. Follow the road as it swings left & look out for the pub! Our long standing arrangement of joining friends at West Lane Baptist Church once a month are currently on hold but we continue to share worship occasionally with three other Methodist Churches in the Worth Valley. Our noticeboard will give details.
Our minister, Rev Ruth Crompton, can be contacted on 01535 652353.

News
Our building is well used by the local community with groups of all ages meeting virtually every day. From dog training to senior citizens we welcome all. Monday evenings see dog training courses for puppies & older animals (contact Kathryn Smith 01535 635290), Tuesday evenings see karate in the hall and the Fern Christian Fellowship in the church. Wednesdays are our busiest day. They see a new Food for the Soul café from 10.30am where wholesome home-made food is offered on a pay-what-you-can arrangement. This is running alongside a new community library where people simply help themselves and has begun on a voluntary basis to replace the now defunct council mobile service. Haworth Senior Citizens meeting the same afternoon for speakers and other activities. Every Wednesday evening Rainbows, Brownies and Guides meet in the large Grimshaw hall while alternate weeks welcome a new community choir at 6.30pm. Contact Charlotte Jones on 07805039446 or charlottejonessinger.com for information. Thursday evenings again host karate. A Well Being Cafe runs bi-monthly on 3rd Fridays between 1.30pm and 4pm. This is for older people and their carers and involves food, entertainment and information. Other groups come and go, making bookings as they need them. The hall is available for fund raising activities by community organisations on Saturdays or for children`s parties, being large enough for a bouncy castle.

Whats On
Many Haworth people have links with us even though no longer regular attenders, and all are assured of a warm welcome not just to special occasions. Details of our activities are on the noticeboard in the yard opposite the Old Sun pub.
We also have two graveyards with monuments dating back more than 200 years. The upkeep is difficult for the small congregation of older people and the graves are still in the ownership of individual families though few try to maintain them. For safety reasons we have had to lock the top graveyard & allow access only to people wishing to tend graves.
