Totley Rise Methodist Church
Welcome! Totley Rise Methodist Church is a lively and welcoming place of Christian worship on the South West outskirts of Sheffield, England. Every Sunday we have a contemporary worship service at 10:30am. On the first and third Sundays of the month, we have a more traditional style of worship at 9am. On the first Sunday of the month at 4pm we have a quieter and less structured service called "Time Aside". On the second Sunday at 3pm "Focus Church" takes place. This is a time of worship specially structured for those who have learning disabilities and cognitive difficulties. Finally, on the fourth Sunday at 9am is "Toddler Praise" specifically for parents and pre-school children. The first 10 minutes of the morning service is planned for all ages worshipping together before the children leave the main body of the church to attend Sunday Club. On the second Sunday of the month, we have All Age Worship when the children remain in the church for the whole service. (Please see our calendar). You can listen to recordings of sermons from recent services.
We are a busy Church with group activities taking place throughout the week from Pushchair Club to Senior Teas and there is a particular emphasis on welcoming and making provision for young families. Check our weekly notices, special announcements and calendar for information about our upcoming activities. Our Magazine (Alive!) reports on completed events and looks forward to approaching ones.
In our Youth and Children's activities the leaders engage with younger people from pre-school to teenage on Sunday mornings and the team lays on activities such as Messy Church and Toddler Praise - a lively mix of singing and storytelling - in addition to fun days and performances in Church itself. A supervised crèche is available during Sunday morning services. All our volunteer supervisors are DBS checked and trained.
Totley Rise is active in the local community too, hosting a walk-in Citizens Advice Bureau and a weekly bread and soup making session (Bread 4 Life) held in nearby flats, providing much needed contact and support for residents.
The Church premises include the TRM Centre - a community hub with rooms to hire and kitchen and toilet facilities. Outside is our Quiet Garden - a crafted space of tranquillity in a setting of carefully managed flowerbeds and biblical references. This popular feature is now on the itinerary of the Totley Open Gardens - an annual event raising funds for local charities.
