East Keswick Methodist Church is set in the village of East Keswick, West Yorkshire. The building itself dates from 1891, but a Methodist presence has been in the village for approximately 250 years. The current church was built ‘To the Glory of God’ in memory of Joseph Lawrence who trained young men for methodist ministry in a nearby school.
In 2003 we upgraded our side rooms and kitchen facilities and now boast some very high standard function rooms which are in keeping with the rest of the building.
The congregation is made up of people of differing ages, some of whom live within the village whilst others come from the surrounding area. Although we are a small congregation, we try to provide something for all ages, either at our traditional service or at our more informal worship during cafe church.
