About

Our Lunch Club, which meets on the first Wednesday each month at 12noon offers light meals and drinks. This group comprises many from the community and is a means whereby isolation can be reduced, particularly for older people. There is a weekly subscription, normally £3.00 per person.

 

Family Fun Club meets on the last Friday each month at 6.30pm until 8pm. This is a family orientated meeting offering sports games, table games and quizzes for the whole family. Snack refreshments and drinks are available. We ALWAYS end with a “Time for God” session where young ones and their families can know more about God and Jesus. There isn’t really an age limit – we are all one family with different ages, races, skills and aspirations – it’s a safe place for a weekend wind-down. There is currently no charge for attending.

 

The Rhema Bible Fellowship meets weekly on Thursdays at 7.30pm. During Spring, Summer and Autumn we offer a varied programme of Biblical studies comprising thematic or Biblical topics. We also, each year, offer a Lent course. Our speakers comprise circuit ministers, local preachers and trusted leaders from other churches. Numbers are around a dozen and it’s a warm and enjoyable session. You don’t need any understanding of the Scriptures – just come along and enjoy God’s word. We do not meet during winter (December to Lent).

 

Our Junior Church meets during our time of worship on Sunday mornings. Our Rainbows, Brownies and Guides meet in the week in our church hall.

 

Tipton Green Methodist Church was opened in July 1978 and was forged by three churches (Park Lane, Bloomfield and Bell Street) taking a wider vision and merging into one fellowship. However, there has been a Methodist presence on the current ground since 1750 when the first preaching house was built. This was replaced by a chapel in 1786.

 

In 1809 Park Lane Methodist Church was built but fell into disrepair by 1975. A blue English Heritage plaque, indicating the site as one where John Wesley himself had preached, is testimony to God’s grace being worked out and lived in our community for over two centuries.

 

As a society of Methodist Christians today, we offer people a warm welcome, free from judgment. We open a space where all can explore who God is and what He has done for us in Jesus and how lives may be transformed through the Spirit to experience God’s offer of love and grace. Worship, Fellowship and Biblical truth are key factors in our discipleship journey.

 

Within the Tipton area we have good relations with friends in other churches, although COVID has precluded any close working together in the last two years. Within community, The Tipton Food Bank has operated since 2013; from its inception people from Tipton Green were part of operation. The Food Bank opens Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays; friends from New Road along with Tipton Green members run the Tuesday session.

 

Post COVID our main aspiration for Tipton Green is growth and linking more closely with community and families. Our main objective, as a church, will be making Jesus real to people in our vicinity and growing a love-centred fellowship for all ages
