The Churches of Polperro & district
The Methodist Church
These two buildings continued to 1993, when a severe flood damaged many properties in the Village, including the old Church, and it proved necessary to demolish the original Church, and replace it with a new and comfortable small room, (The Annexe) which has a modern kitchen and toilets, and with facilities for the physically disabled. The 1904 Church was re-furbished at the same time, removing the much loved pitch pine pews, and replacing with comfortable chairs, a new Heating system, and fully carpeting the whole premises, which were re-dedicated in 1998. We now have a modernised and comfortable building which is used by the Church, the Village, and by voluntary organisations.
Why not call in when you visit Polperro? We are open for 4-5 hours most weekdays during the Summer, as well as for Sunday Services - 11.00am throughout the year, with Junior Church, and also at 6.00pm.during the Summer months - see our poster board for details.
During the period October to April, we have a thriving Women's Fellowship on Tuesdays at 2.30pm., a Bible Study at 10.30am on Wednesday most weeks, and from May to September we host a weekly "Drop-in" Centre for Physically Handicapped and Elderly folk on Tuesdays, and Wheelchairs and Walking Sticks are most warmly welcome to rest for an hour, before the half mile journey to the top of the Village Car Park! Books, music, and a "cuppa" with someone to chat to, could be the highlight of your visit! Carers are also very welcome to rest-a-while.
Church groups are especially welcome, and, with notice, a cup of tea or coffee can be arranged.
For further information about the Church, please ring 01503 272756. If you would like to contact the Minister, please ring Rev Margaret Oxenham on 01503 263235.
