WESLEY METHODIST CHURCH IS A CARING CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY committed to sharing the Christian faith by what we say and do in Church and in the wider community in which we live.
At Frome Wesley Church our principal weekly service is at 10.30am every Sunday, at which time we make also provision for children of all ages. We hold occasional services on Sunday afternoons, and regularly provide a service at Frome Memorial Hospital. The church is situated near the centre of the town: click here to see a local map
Coleford Methodist Chapel worships at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday, at 52 Mendip Vale, Coleford. We share our evening service with Holy Trinity Church, and meet at Holy Trinity PC, Church Street, each week. Services follow the Anglican style of worship on the first and third Sundays of each month, and the Methodist style on the second and fourth Sundays. When there are five Sundays in the month, worship alternates between Methodist and Anglican styles of worship. Click here to see a map of the village.

Housed within our church is an historic and exceptional pipe organ which is of tremendous heritage value to the Town. The organ probably dates from the 18th century and is understood to have been procured, second-hand, from Romsey Abbey in 1853. It is enclosed within a beautiful and equally valuable Harris style casing which is also reputed to be from the 18th century.
For more than 175 years various generations of the Wesley Church Council have maintained the integrity, tone and character of this magnificent instrument. A number of major refurbishments and upgrades to the instrument have been undertaken during this period - the last being in 1958.
Almost sixty years on, repairs and refurbishment are once again needed to retain the organís high quality and listed value. Once done, it will last well into the latter part of the 21st century.
With an estimated overall cost of £45/50.000, of which the church has already raised £12000 from within its own resources, the Church Council are opening a public appeal to have the work undertaken before further deterioration occurs.
