Christmas starts in Horton with the Gower Carol Service on Thursday 12th December at 7pm in Horton Chapel. The service will be followed by tea/coffee and mince pies. Please do support the village and the Gower end of the circuit at this lovely event.
The Gower churches (Pitton, Horton, Murton and Reynoldston) are now completely live on this site, with the content replacing the old Gower Methodists’ website. However, the web address gowermethodists.org.uk is still in use for the pages on this site.
It’s a very busy day in our circuit this coming Sunday. Horton Methodist Church celebrates its 200th Anniversary and our Sketty church sees the coming together of the Methodist and Bethel URC congregations who will worship together on a permanent basis.
In the afternoon our Circuit Mission Day gets underway. This year the Circuit Project is WATER AID
We are all invited to gather at our Sketty church – Dillwyn Road, Sketty, Swansea, SA2 9AE
3.30p.m – Presentation on the work of Water Aid by Mr David Padfield
4.30p.m – A Faith Tea ( please bring an item of food with you)
6.00p.m – Annual Circuit Mission Service – preacher Rev Dr Stephen Wigley, Chair of Wales Synod. Worship will be led by Circuit staff
Why we are supporting Water Aid ?
Around 700,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation – that’s almost 2,000 children a day. (Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group, 2012 and Unicef Child Mortality Report, 2012)
The average person in the UK uses 150 litres of water a day. In Australia it’s around 500 litres and in the USA, over 570 litres.

This weekend will see the celebration of Horton Chapel’s bicentenary. It will combine with the harvest festival and the Rev. Dr. Stephen Wigley will be preaching. All are welcome to join us at 10:30am in Horton.
