Welcome to The Website for the Methodist Churches in the Pocklington & Market Weighton area

Bolton with Fangfoss

We are small but active church. Sunday Services are at 11.00am most weeks and we hold regular mid-week events such as weekly Wednesday coffee mornings 10.30am-11.45am, and an Art and Craft Group every third Monday 10.00am-12.00pm.

Located between Pocklington, Yapham Mill and Fangfoss, there is on-street parking. The chapel was built in 1869, replacing a previous building. Special permission was given from Whitehall in 1870 for a burial ground. The chapel celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2019. Facilities include seating for 80, toilet, kitchen, and wheelchair access to the rear of the building.

The chapel with its raised pews is a good space for concerts and small meetings. The schoolroom/kitchen area can be arranged with tables and chairs to suit activities up to 20.

 

April 21 News  - It has been a productive year for Bolton and the Circuit. In July 2020 we knitted and sent 103 Baby Jumpers to the Wullinkamma Arribaja clinic in Gambia which was a great achievement. They arrived at the clinic and were given to babies under one year whose mothers died and are being looked after often by the wider family. It has been a privilege to collect the bags of knitting and the knitters all asked if they could do more as they had enjoyed doing them knowing they would be used to give babies warmth. The next collection took place in late March and the knitters had grown in numbers across the circuit and beyond. The numbers grew and the total packed for shipping was a magnificent 359 jumpers mostly with hats too!  The 3 boxes have now being transferred to the Shipping company and they hopefully should arrive at the end of June. A huge thank you to all who have contributed to the Knitting, Collection and shipping costs. We intend to make a further collection in the Autumn probably around early November for those who wish to continue to knit these delightful jumpers.
