   Our mission statement
      Primary aims are:
                         To proclaim and offer Christ to all people
                         To offer worship to God
                         To care for the church family and its neighbourhood
                         To exercise responsible stewardship of all God's gifts
                         To serve the community locally, nationally and internationally

   The Church wishes to take the opportunity to provide a Christian witness in Pocklington,

     in fellowship, caring for others and service to the local community.
  Alongside all ventures the Church maintains its contributions to the life of many families in the 

    town and surrounding area through ordinary worship, home visits, weddings, christenings and funerals.

  The work of the Ministers, Bible Study housegroups, the Choir, Junior Church (Sunday Club) & Tuesday  

     Fellowship may easily be taken for granted but they are all at the heart of what the Church is all about.

  Year in year out, the church community gives financial support to the National Children's Home, Christian

     Aid, Cancer Research and Methodist Homes for the Aged amongst others. Our relief and development

    fund gives help throughout the world wherever and whenever it is needed.
