Bewdley Methodist Church
12 High Street
Bewdley Methodist Church is a traditional church situated on High Street. John Wesley preached in Bewdley on six occasions inspiring a small group of the townsfolk to build their own church, which opened on its current site in 1795. Here you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome. As well as its regular Sunday services at 10:30am and its midweek activities, it also has a ministry of music through its Music in the Chapel Concerts.
Regular midweek activities include Knit & Natter ( Second Thursday each month 2.00-4.00pm) and Coffee Morning ( Fourth Tuesday each month 10.30-12.00 noon)
On Saturday 18 March 2023 a new season of Music in the Chapel concerts launches with a Piano Recital by Tony Bridgewater, featuring the world premiere of 'Fantasia on O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing'. This was composed by Tony to mark the church's 225th anniversary in 2020, but all concerts were cancelled due to the pandemic. His Fantasia is based on four tunes associated with the much-loved hymn by Charles Wesley.
Tony is a freelance musician and composer, conductor of Wyre Forest Symphony Orchestra and principal accompanist of Kidderminster Male Choir. His programme on 18 March also includes works by Schubert and Bach.
Tickets cost £10.00 including light refreshments and can be reserved via the church web site www.bewdleymethodists.org.uk
