About Drift Methodist Church

This is a small rural church situated 3 miles from Penzance on the very busy A30 road leading to Land’s End. The church building sits on a corner site at the crossroads in the centre of the village and a much-valued car park is just opposite our building.

We are one of the five member churches of MAP (Methodists around Penzance) and this gives us an integrated access to the larger churches around Penzance which are all led by our minister, Revd Ralph Ward.

Our church family welcomes old and young alike and we all work in our pastoral areas within our community. We welcome everyone to come and join us here at Drift. The weekly service is held each Sunday at 2:30 pm and is followed by tea/coffee, cake, biscuits and a ‘catch-up chat’. We also love to sing and visitors are often surprised by the volume and buoyancy of the joyful singing.

Outside, the brightly coloured notice boards are a true invitation to come in and enjoy a time of fellowship and family worship with us. The summer visitor population have certainly taken up the invitation, enjoyed their worship time with us and returned again and again.

A rural welcome is afforded to all, where we all are trusting in the Lord.

There is a small carpark across from the Church down the little lane on the left.
