Minister in pastoral charge: Revd Rob Drost
[email protected]

My name is Rob Drost and from September 2018, I will be new minister at Methley Methodist Chapel. I am also the minister at Lindale chapel in Kirkhamgate village, Wrenthorpe and Trinity (Wakefield).
Born in Cardiff, I moved to England when I was 17 to take a ‘gap year’ and have been involved with churches and church projects ever since. As well as being a church minister, I am also a qualified Youth & Community Worker and took this course through the YMCA.
I have run youth clubs, a conference centre, a Christian gap year programme, been a Bishop’s Advisor in Youth Work and was a Project Manager with the children’s charity “Barnardo’s” working with Y10 & Y11 pupils who had been excluded from school. Before moving to West Yorkshire, I was the Chaplain at the Children’s Hospital in Sheffield and had charge of Millhouses Methodist Church.
I am married to Rachel McCallam, who also works for the Methodist church as a Trainer and Facilitator. We have four children – Isaac, who is about to go to College, Stephen and Eve are both at University and Richard, who has autism and has his own flat in Rotherham. I am a bit of a pasta and cheese fan, mug of coffee kind of guy, I love a bit of rugby and a good movie with crisps…..!

Service begins at 10:45 on a Sunday morning


We are very blessed at Methley as we are right in the centre of the village, right next door to the post office. The chapel was built in 1888 and much of it is just as it was... however things have changed, capatalising on our position we have refurbished and become "The Centre". Please click here for a snapshot of the plans. Or better still come and see us and enjoy the finished article!!!


We are open for coffee EVERY DAY 10- 12 , please pop in for a cuppa (apart from the 2nd Saturday when our Anglican friends hold a coffee morning)


This is it folks... the choir for people who can't sing!
The Clueless Chorus is for you if you want to have fun singing - end of. We REALLY don't care if you can't really hold a tune, but of course in order to be totally non-discriminatory we will also grant membership to people who CAN actually sing too. It's only fair really...
Come along and have some fun letting off steam. Mondays at 7pm



Methley Movies in February

On Jan 11th at 7pm we are showing STAN & Ollie Laurel and Hardy -- the world's greatest comedy team -- face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can't quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy's failing health start to threaten their precious partnership



Tea Time Thursdays – Let’s eat our tea together! Every fortnight on Thursday tea times from 5.00-6.30pm all are welcome to come and share in good food and discussion. We’ll put the world to rights!   Jan 30th


Chapel Prayer Space 

We have created a prayer space in chapel, light a candle, hang a prayer tree, have a read of  a prayer book… feel free to use... even if it is just for peace and a ponder.





The Wee Shop in Chapel is a co-operative involving 14 individuals or small local business, the vast majority of the products are home made or home produced, there are knitted goods, sewn toys and bags, ornaments, woodwork, jewellery, cards, home made preserves and cakes… the list goes on, please call in (daily 10-12 noon) to have a look. Our prices are reasonable and many of the producers are happy to make to order.


Easy Church...
on the first Sunday of the month you can join us in Easy Church, it's always different and relaxed. It is very accesible and informal. The aim is all about getting "the message" over to everyone there in an easy to understand meaningful way. We pray, we often sing (but usually not hymns), we laugh a lot, share in good fellowship and leave with a challenge. It is geared at everyone, whatever age... come along.


join us on the second Sunday of the month at 6pm for worship with Rob, Tim and Kev. It's informal and ever changing. All hymns/songs are on the screen and it dares to be different, challenging, uplifting... come along, we'd love to see you.


Craft and chat. Every Monday afternoon 2-4pm. Bring along your own crafts or learn new skills. All welcome.
Art group. We have 2 art classes, Tues 10-12noon and Thursday 7-9m, all welcome.

Methley MoviesOn the 2nd Tuesday of the month we meet at 7pm to watch a film and have a chat afterwards, refreshments are available. The films aren't overtly Christian but provide us the opportunity to look at ourselves, our world and the way we live.

... and a few more things...
we are very proud to be a fairtrade chapel so all our drinks are fairly traded
