Bidford Methodist Church is located in the centre of the village of Bidford on Avon in South Warwickshire, just off the High Street, in Chapel Close. It is a fairly modem brick built building built in 1984, replacing a large Methodist Church which has been demolished, to make way for a relief road.
It is a multi-functional building consisting of the main room, which is the church and where regular worship takes place. This room is regularly used by outside organisations, plus a coffee lounge, kitchen with servery and vestry, which having sliding doors in one wall, can be used as an extension to the coffee lounge.
Toilets and the entrance lobby complete the church building.
Bidford on Avon is to be found in South Warwickshire, mid-way between Stratford-upon-Avon and Evesham, Worcestershire. It can be traced back to Roman times when Iknield Street forded the River Avon at Bidford. Now, the river is crossed by a medieval bridge, over 600 years old, which leads into the village centre.
Worship Every Sunday at 10.30am with the exception of the 2nd Sunday of each month, when no services take place. The Church is used for occasional worship by other churches and organisations outside the village on an ad hoc basic.
Coffee Pot This takes place on the 1st Saturday of each month, 10.30am to 12noon. But not during Holy Week. Coffee and light refreshment plus a good chat. Hikers and Bikers are welcome.
Soup 'n' Pud On the 3rd Monday each month, at 12.30pm. A joint venture with other churches in the village, where we meet to have a frugal lunch of soup and a pudding at the Methodist Church, it being conveniently central to the village. Tea or coffee and a Thought for the Day ends this time of Fellowship. All monies collected at our Soup n Pud is donated to local charitable causes.
