Welcome to Hambledon Methodist Church Print E-mail


We are a warm and welcoming Christian community.  Above all we are a fellowship that loves the Lord and provides loving support one to each other.  The Chapel offers a range of services and other meetings.  Every Sunday we worship God at our morning service, led either by the Circuit Minister, the Reverend David Moss, or by visiting pastors and lay preachers.  Our worship is generally free form without formal liturgy and the emphasis is on 3 strands of worship:  praise through songs and hymns, prayer and exploring the Gospel.  Our aim is to provide space for the Holy Spirit to make His presence known in all of our services and meetings.  We also love to share the experiences of the members of our fellowship through testimonies and spoken prayer.


The chapel first opened its doors in July 1864 and is typical of the numerous Methodist chapels that sprang up, largely by public subscription, throughout the rural parts of Hampshire.  The Chapel now forms part of the Meon Valley circuit with a strong focus on evangelism.  Hambledon Chapel, although retaining many of its original features, continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of the community and to bring the Christian message to the village and the wider neighbourhood.  Fully renovated, the Chapel has disabled access and the benefit of an attached hall with catering facilities.


We are a giving fellowship which regularly provides support to the persecuted church throughout the world through the Barnabas Fund; sponsorship of the Christians in Nigeria through the Soteria Trust; help to Christian Dalits in India through Harvest India; support to refugees in Iraq and Syria through Samara's Aid; and encouragement to our Messianic Jewish brothers and sisters through Maoz Israel.


Further details of our services and meetings are shown overleaf and on the notice board outside the chapel.  Special events are publicised in "The Hambledonian" and on our Facebook Page:  https://www.facebook.com/HambledonMethodist/
