Welcome to Rosyth Methodist Church. We are part of the Methodist Church in Great Britain, a Church with some 300,000 members across England, Scotland and Wales.
The Methodist Church is a Protestant denomination which originated in the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century. Our main focus is on the universal nature of God’s love, offered to all of humanity. Our response is to seek to live lives of holiness as part of the people of God. Methodism emphasises the need for a personal faith, and the involvement of all people in the life and work of the Church. Women and men have equal places in our church organisation and in our ordained ministry. Everyone is invited to discover and offer their gifts in the service of God and of the world.
We have always believed that faith is not to be confined to church, but should seek to enrich every aspect of human life.
Our congregation at Rosyth is in partnership with St Margaret’s Scottish Episcopal Church. We share the one building and some of the various activities.
This is a place for everyone and we would like people of all ages to feel part of our Sunday worship. Our main worship service is at 11.00am each week, with a Sunday School which shares the first part of the service and then moves to its own special activities.
The pattern may vary at special festival and holiday times, but most months on the second Sunday we have “Sunday Funday”, with breakfast at 9.00am and activities for children who come with their parents, and afterwards a service intended for all ages. On the fourth Sunday each month we hold a joint communion service with St Margaret’s, using the Methodist and the Episcopal liturgies in turn.
Our aim is to ensure you quickly feel at home but also find sufficient challenges to move forwards in your spiritual life.
For details of what’s on, click this link, or use the “What’s on” tab. Our regular activities are listed at this link. You’ll find us in Queensferry Road at the junction with Woodside Avenue, and 5 minutes walk from Rosyth Station. More details at the “Where we are” tab. We welcome everyone: we have a loop system for your hearing aid, access for buggies and wheelchairs, disabled toilets, and large print versions of the liturgy books.
