Group activities


If you enjoy creative textiles, unwinding with artwork or having a natter with your knitting or crochet you might like to come and join our friendly, informal, mixed ability craft group.


We meet 10-12am most Mondays between September and July with the occasional coffee outing to visit an exhibition or craft outlet.


In autumn we usually make Christmas decorations, wall hangings or cards to be sold at our craft fair in aid of our church. In spring we like to have a demonstration or workshop on a new skill from either a visiting speaker or one of our own group followed by time to try our hand at a new project. Over recent years we have dabbled with batik, mixed media pictures, collage, Indian prints and embroidery.


If you would like incentive to finish that abandoned item, help with a rusty talent or to be tempted to try something different why not pop into the church hall to meet us over coffee.

2023 was a productive year.  To celebrate Easter with our church family we had a busy spring crafting knitted chicks filled with tempting cream eggs to share out on Easter morning.  Embroidered felt floral eggs were also made to adorn the Easter trees decorating our porch.  At Christmas our colourful display of hand-made cards, tree decorations and gifts attracted many customers at our annual Craft Fair raising a pleasing profit for church funds. Thank you all for your compliments.

The Carers Support Group is held every Friday afternoon 2-4pm in the Maple Leaf Room (through the double doors in the building behind the church).

This is a free informal group for anyone who looks after a relative or friend, or for those who just need some additional company or support.  A warm welcome awaits anyone who would like to come along to chat over a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy a slice of cake.  Some weeks there is a short quiz, a few songs or other activities. 

You are welcome to pop in any Friday afternoon or, for more information, contact Irene Watts Tel: 01704 876219 or email:

From 2pm in the Maple Leaf Room.

Take Time is the name of the  Formby Methodist Church branch of“The Neighbourhood Project”. We wanted to create a safe space where we can take time… to meet, to grow in friendship and fellowship, to talk and share news, to pray, to look for signs of God at work in our lives, to learn, to listen, to grow our faith, to care for friends and neighbours, to seek ways to show God’s love at work in our community, to take time for friends & neighbours, to share hospitality and to enjoy tea and cake! So Take Time seemed to be the obvious choice for our name whilst still remaining under The Neighbourhood Project  umbrella.


Our group meet on the afternoon of the first and third Tuesday of the month, under the auspices of TNP. Our objective is not to create more projects or jobs in already busy lives, but to consider how, within our normal day to day activities and, without drawing attention to it, we show our love, God’s love, to those we meet. So……


If you feel that you would like to know more or would like to join us to see for

yourselves please contact me. We would love to welcome you whenever and, however often, you can make it.

Formby Methodist Eco Group

The members of this group believe in looking after God's world so that it remains beautiful and thriving for generations to come.
Formby Methodist Church has joined the eco church movement, which encourages churches to ‘go green’ in all areas of church life, from worship and lifestyle to building management and thinking globally. The members of the church’s Eco Group are passionate about the environment and about learning ways to care better for the world. We want to come up with practical suggestions and give information that would be useful guidance to all those who use our church buildings.

Everyone is very welcome to join in our meetings, share ideas with us and join our group.
