'Affirm God’s Presence, Proclaim God’s Love,
Demonstrate God’s Action’
Our Church hosts a wide variety of services, with a large congregation ranging from the very young to the young at heart! Pastoral care is shared with the Minister, Supernumerary Ministers, Church Family Worker and a team of Pastoral Visitors.
We provide a wide range of activities for all age groups. Indeed the Church has a great commitment of outreach within our community through several projects for youth, elderly, lonely, housebound etc. From our regular Mod Mums Coffee Club, to the Friday Table Tennis Club and our Junior Church, Rustington Methodist Church certainly does offer something for every person.Read More
What is Posada?
Posada (meaning “home” or “lodging”) is an old Mexican tradition where young people dressed as Mary and Joseph travelled from house to house asking for a room for the night and telling people about the imminent arrival of Jesus in the weeks leading up to Christmas (Advent). On Christmas Eve they would visit the local church to re-enact the nativity and place figures of Mary and Joseph in a crib.
Modern day Posada uses nativity figures of Mary and Joseph who travel from place to place. This gives each ‘host’ the chance to create their own celebration in their home or place in the community, worshipping and reaching out to their communities with the real message of Christmas, making room for Jesus in their lives.
Rustington Methodist Church has chosen to practice Posada this year. Will you be a host to Mary and Joseph for a night?Read More
