COULD YOU GIVE US A HELPING HAND?

TALBOT LANE METHODIST CHURCH, in the heart of Rotherham, is a Grade 11 Listed Building with an amazing Outreach to the vulnerable and homeless in this town. We have substantial repairs to address if we are to stay open and continue this selfless work.. Your donations will help us to move forward with a sense of call to minister love to all those who are vulnerable in our society. We need to have completed approximately £80,000 of work to this beautiful building within the next 18 months. HELP!

Our Congregation is struggling financially to find all the money that we need.  Church members are invited to make their donations via Church funds, gift aided if possible. you will find out more of our fascinating History within the pages of this web site.

If you have a heart for the Poor, an interest in preserving Methodist Heritage, or a drive to see Rotherham town centre improve, then please consider helping us.  Go to https://www.gofundme.com/talbot-lane-methodist-church  and you are on your way with our grateful thanks.
