About West Lane Methodist Church & Grimshaw Centre
Christian worship has been held on this site since 1744. 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. Services are held on the 1st & 3rd Sundays at 10.30am, 2nd Sunday 2.30pm & 4th Sundays united at Baptist Church 10.30am. The first Thursday morning of most months we have an informal coffee morning with prayers. Anyone is welcome to join us at 10.30am. 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! We have recently offered part of our land to the new Haw-earth organisation to grow vegetables, herbs and wild flowers.
We have a new minister, Rev Ruth Crompton, who can be contacted on 01535 652353.

Our building is well used by the local community with groups of all ages meeting virtually every day. From dog training to day care for the elderly 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 see Haworth Senior Citizens meeting in the afternoon for speakers and other activities and evenings Rainbows, Brownies and Guides. On Thursday we provide a meeting place with transport, a meal and activities for older people who have difficulty getting out of the house during the day and karate in the evening. Zumba Fitness classes have begun on Friday & Saturday mornings. Contact Melanie on 07962341938 for information. A Well Being Cafe runs bi-monthly on Fridays between 30pm and 4pm, the next being on Good Friday & in June. 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 often used for fund raising activities by community organisations on Saturdays or for children`s parties, being large enough for a bouncy castle. We have the only stage in the area and occasionally stage theatre productions.

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 but any Sunday.
We also have two graveyards with monuments dating back more than 200 years. The upkeep is difficult for the small congregation 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.

Maundy Thursday coffees 10.30am & special service at 11am, Easter Day Holy Communion at 10.30am; Easter Monday 10.30am mini market with stalls, all day afternoon teas and hot lunches. May 4th 183rd Sunday School anniversary services 10.30am and 6pm led by the Rev Dr Neville Richardson. May 17th Haworth 40s Weekend NAAFI Cafe serving war-time fare at low prices & stalls.
