Haslemere Food Bank

We have supported the Food Bank as a church community by collecting items at Harvest, at Christmas & at Easter on the road runs to individual houses. The pandemic means there is a constant demand for items. If you have any of the following to spare and can, do drop off at the Methodist Church in Haslemere during Food Bank opening times, on a Wednesday or Friday morning between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., or at one of the Collection points at

Tesco Haslemere
Waitrose Haslemere
CeeGees Fernhurst

This document lists all the items they would welcome at present:

We will be collecting from your homes once again on Saturday March 27th and will update the list if it changes before then.

Our next coffee morning

Join us for coffee on Saturday 17th April at 11 a.m. to catch up with one another and have a chat. An invitation to join the Zoom gathering will be sent out by email or details on how to phone to those who prefer to join us this way. See you there!

Sight Loss Friendly Church

We are now registered as a Sight Loss Friendly Church as we work towards making our online and real time services more accessible to all. We’ve got lots of work to do and there will be opportunities for us all to access training and resources to support those in our congregation with sight concerns.

Eco Church Award

A small group of members has been investigating the idea of achieving an Eco church award. It’s been done using a survey supplied by A.Rocha, the administrative organisation for the award, just looking at where we are now. If you would like to know more, visit the page in the Menu bar.

We have submitted an application and have been awarded a Bronze Award.

Are you at risk?

Hugh has written out to all members explaining the Elders’ decision to continue with digital, rather than in-church services at present. His letter refers to a video explaining how to assess your risk, which is available here:

Introducing our Sensory Garden

Over the summer of 2019, we started putting the structure in to the back garden of a Sensory Garden, using as many recycled materials as possible. We hope the Nursery School children, our friends from Whitmore Vale and our members will enjoy it as it grows and develops. Look out for updates!

Tyres from the local garage, filled with plants donated from members’ gardens!
