Thombury has had a Methodist presence since 1789 when John Wesley preached in the "neat and commodious preaching house". The original building was vacated in 1878 when the congregation transferred to the present neo-Gothic building in the High Street.
Thornbury Methodist Church is at the northern and rural extremity of the Bristol and South Gloucestershire Circuit. The Church premises consist of a two storey annexe which provides upper and lower halls, kitchens, toilets, vestry and a quiet room.
The Church has developed a lay leadership and convenors who deal with most of the administrative aspects of church life - covering areas of Service, Worship, Evangelism and Learning & Caring. The convenors are supported by the Church Stewards.
Members are involved in a range of community activities, play a significant role in Circuit and District functions and there is an active group of Local Preachers.
The Church plays its part as a partner in "Thornbury Churches Together" and shares a ministry to the local hospital.
The halls are rented to community groups (contact or telephone Pam Cockwell 01454 413116). See www.thornburymethodist.org.uk for details of regular groups and activities.
