On Sunday 13th May 2013 we gathered for a Circuit Service to celebrate Faithful Servants. Hymns were sing written by Charles Wesley as we marked the 275th Anniversary of the "Warm Heart" experiences of the brothers John and Charles Wesley. This was also the final service for Grimethorpe Methodist Church and we gave thanks for all those who have served faithfully for many years in this community. Although this was a sad occasion it was celebrated with humour as people of the past were remembered and some of their stories told. Greetings were received from many of the past ministers as we celebrated the ministry of the church and gave thanks to God for our life and roots in the Methodist Church.
