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 we are trialling 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! From April 10th we are welcoming members of St Michael and All Angels Parish Church to share worship with us at 10,30am while their building roof is repaired. We are also able to join friends at West Lane Baptist Church on the fourth Sunday of each month and are also sharing 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.

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. 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. We are currently trialling informal coffee and praise times on Thursday mornings twice a month, details of which 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.
Friday April 8th 10amn to 11.30am coffee morning in aid of Marie Curie in the communal lounge at Thornfield, Station Road.
