The Woodstock Walkers
We believe and trust in God, who loves us all.
We believe and trust in Jesus, who showed us what love means.
We believe and trust in the Holy Spirit, who helps us to love in return.
Drive along the main road through Woodstock and, just opposite the King's Arms Hotel, you will discover Woodstock Methodist Church. With a membership of 65 and a Junior Church numbering about 15, it is a warm, welcoming church with a vibrant worshipping community.
Our regular times of worship are at 10.30am on a Sunday and 10am on a Friday. Alongside this, we have a range of other activities: housegroups, film evenings, Tuesday Tots for preschool children and their carers, Thursday Coffee for those who want a chat or to play a game of Scrabble, and a variety of social events including regular walks and theatre trips.
As well as our own activities, we are committed to supporting groups and events in the wider community and across the world. We are a Fairtrade church and our current church project is to support two local charities, Dogs for Good and Asylum Welcome. Information on all our activities can be found on the pages of this website.
We are also blessed by having many wonderful preachers from the Oxford Circuit coming to the Church to lead our worship. For those people who are unable to make it to our services for any reason, and for those people who were in Church, but would like to study a sermon given again in more detail, in the Comments Section of the website, we include the texts from a selection of recent sermons. We include the details of the set texts from the Lectionary, around which the sermon was based, so that you can study these for yourselves before reading the sermon and benefitting from the preacher’s special insights. You will also find in this Section video reflections and other study aids to help you on your personal spiritual journey.
We also delighted to be able to offer our facilities for hire by individuals and community groups. If you need space for an event, club, meeting or some special get-together, whether regularly or on a one-off basis, please do see what we have to offer by checking out our bookings page.
Please do take the time to look around. And please, should you ever be passing through Woodstock, do drop in and see us.
In Christ is our salvation -
his light comes shining down the years
and all the darkness has not quenched the flame:
and souls beset with foes and fears
have gloried in His name.
In Christ is our salvation -
by faith we look to Him and see
how ordinary lives can be transformed:
imprisoned spirits are set free
and hearts are strangely warmed.
O Jesus, precious Saviour,
make us, your struggling, striving Church,
a royal priesthood fit to bear your name:
may we, who hold the gospel torch
be radiant with its flame.
