Kidlington Methodist Church is the focal point for a whole range of community activities - from youth groups, to carers groups, coffee mornings to fun days. Above all, of course it is a place of worship where our simple mission is to love God; to love one another; and to love our neighbours, whoever and wherever they may be.
Kidlington Methodist Church is part of the Oxford Methodist Circuit

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Luther’s publication of the 95 theses, this talk explored the legacy of the German Reformation. A particular focus was on congregational singing and how the hymns shaped Protestant identity in Germany and Britain to the present day. We looked at (and sang) examples from the first Protestant hymnbook printed in 1524 in Erfurt to the Methodist hymnbook ‘Hymns and Psalms’.

A weekly group combining fitness with fellowship takes place in the church on Mondays at 1pm. Feelgood Fitness is a gentle exercise class for people of all ages...but those of more 'mature' years will feel especially at home! It is led by the same qualified instructor who devised and presented fitness sessions for our Holiday at Home events. Each class lasts about 45 minutes and is followed by a chance to chat, enjoy some refreshments...and get your breath back! Sessions cost just £2.50 per person. Any profits will go to the Holiday @ Home fund. Further info from David (374623).
