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. Services are held on the 1st & 3rd Sundays at 10.30am and from June 11th we are to trial two Thursday mornings a month instead of Sundays. Anyone is welcome to join us at 10.30am. One Thursday will be an informal time of coffee & prayers & the other a more traditional service. 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! At present we join friends at West Lane Baptist Church on the fourth Sunday of each month.
Our minister, Rev Ruth Crompton, 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. A Well Being Cafe runs bi-monthly on 3rd Fridays between 1.30pm and 4pm, the next being in February. 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 had a few enquiries from people interested in attending pilates classes so teachers are welcome to contact us. There is some free time during weekdays when a class could be tried.

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 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.

Sunday services will be held on August 2nd & 16th & Thursdays 13th & 27th. On the 23rd we join friends at West Lane Baptist Church & on the 30th there is a united service at Lees Methodist Church, Crossroads. All are at 10.30am. August Bank Holiday Monday sees the usual mini market from 10.30am with hot & cold food at reasonable prices alongside stalls selling items at bargain rates and on Friday September 25th we take part in the Biggest Coffee Morning in the World for Macmillan Cancer Support. That event will take place in the communal lounge at Thornfield, Station Road between 10am and 11.30am.
