Barlaston Methodist Church has served the village community of Barlaston for over 75 years. Our mission is to serve the community and to ensure that the Church is an integral part of village life. Our aim is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ through interaction and service.
As well as providing for Sunday morning family worship and junior church, the 2nd North Staffs Boys Brigade meet on Monday and Thursday evenings, (Contact Mrs. C Donohoe for details on 01782 372175).
Our Bridge Club meet on Monday afternoons. We also have a Ladies Guild that meets on the second Tuesday of each month and a coffee morning on the last Friday of each month to which anyone is welcome. We are always happy to welcome people into our community and we aim to help people find their “latent” gifts and talents.
Enjoying strong links with the Parish Church of St John the Baptist in the village, we share worship with them on the fourth Sunday of each month.
Our recently extended and refurbished premises are conducive to an informal, relaxed and inclusive style of worship and well-suited to all our other activities. We are pleased to make our hall, kitchen and meeting rooms available for general community use when possible and they are often used for children’s birthday parties and similar events

A message from the Methodist Minister
Rev.d Neil Adams - Newsletter
Almost five years ago now I arrived in the Stafford Methodist Circuit to serve the communities of Barlaston, Eccleshall, Stone and Woodseaves. It has been a privilege to live and work in this area. There have been many sad times, funerals and difficulties to walk; there have been good days too, not just weddings and baptisms but days of great joy getting to know the remarkable people here.
My appointment in Stafford ends on 27th April, and during the summer I will be moving to Wem in Shropshire to work with eight churches in ten Shropshire and Marches Circuit. I will be deeply saddened to leave and the challenge of starting again is of course a big one.
Thankfully the friendships we make as we journey on in life remain with us - good friends don't have to be seen all the time to remain good friends do they?
I will hold you and these communities in my prayers and I trust you will pray for me too.
God bless you
Revd. J. Neil Adams
