Mobberley Methodist Church - A Church Without Walls
Here at Mobberley Methodist our dream is now becoming a reality.
Less than two years ago this little church had a worshipping congregation of just 12 people, with a lot of prayer and determination we embarked on a path to grow. Was it an impossible dream? …. Undeterred we decided to try something different.
Our vision was for our little church to be at the heart of this community and open its doors for groups to meet thus growing the church and its family. Today we have 60 members with many of our dreams now becoming a reality.
Mobberley Methodist Church aims to be a really vibrant place for worship where everyone can find ministries that engage and inspire them. As a church, proclaim the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, we seek to do this in a very relevant and down to earth way.
In normal times we have a dynamic modern family service at 9:15am with a Sunday school and contemporary worship and a more traditional Hymn Service at 10.45am. We already have some incredible ministries including Shell group for children, Crew youth ministries, Amazing Women and a men’s Joshua Men’s breakfast.
At our recent church council we felt that the Covid Crisis has opened up a door to online ministry. This crisis has changed our world there is a strong indication that people are praying more and looking for a place to ask questions and explore their Christian faith more than ever before.
Since the Lockdown, we have added an online Zoom service at 10 am. Details are available on our website and Facebook Page.

Our church is a real family and we welcome others to join us, in helping this vision. We are actively planning a project that if successful will redevelop our worship space into a Community centre and Community cafe, so that it can really be at the heart of our village.

Mobberley Methodist Church forms part of the Alderley Edge and Knutsford Methodist Circuit which is situated in a rural North East Cheshire.
Alderley Edge is the larger church in the east of the circuit, sheltering under the edge, a natural sandstone ridge standing on the Cheshire plain. Knutsford, a thriving market town, is at the western end.
Around the two town centres, the circuit included the village chapels of Mottram St Andrew, Mobberley, Snelson and Plumley, along with the Welcome Cafe Church in Longridge, Knutsford.
