Stillingfleet Chapel

Methodist Chapel

Methodism was first introduced to Stillingfleet in 1769 and members met in houses for nearly 50 years, until Francis Sledge donated a site and the present Chapel was built at a cost of £140 with an extra £1 for fittings.

In 1911 the interior was rebuilt, removing the old box pews, steps and pulpit and a small porch and coalhouse was erected at the north end of the Chapel.

It is part of the York Centenary Circuit since its formation.  In 1981 the merger of Centenary and Wesley circuits took place and York South was formed.

In 1955 a new entrance and vestry was built and in 1990 the whole Chapel was re-roofed.

In 2011 York South merged with York North and became a huge York Circuit incorporating 37 Chapels.

Our relationship with St Helen's has always been good so the signing of the Ecumencial Partnership in 2003 was a natural way of progression for Christian Witness in our community.

Regular meetings held in the Chapel are:

  • Evening services are held each Sunday at 6.30 pm in the Chapel
  • Guild Meetings on Tuesdays at 7.30 pm from October to March.
  • Hymn singing every third Wednesday at 7.30 pm.

United Coffee Mornings are held in the Village Hall on the last Wednesday of each month from 10.30 - 11.30 am.

Details of both regular and special services can be found on the Stillingfleet Pattern of Worship page and the Calendar on this website or please contact our Methodist Minister, Rev Chris Humble, tel: 01904 426483, email: chris@humblec.freeserve.co.uk .
