St Mary’s Parish Church
Services are held at St. Mary's every Sunday at 10.30am and occasionally at 6pm also on the first Sunday of the month. You can always be assured of a warm welcome. More details are posted on the Moorland Group website: moorland-group.org.uk St Mary's, the parish church of the village, is also now the home of Slaley Methodist Church. On the third Sunday of every month we are delighted to welcome a Methodist Minister or Preacher to lead our worship. As well as usual weekly worship, all the churches of Slaley unite for Messy Church in the Commemoration Hall on Saturday mornings four times each year. There's more information about this on the Moorland Group website and in Slaley News. It's great fun - and for all the family.
Slaley Methodist Church
Slaley Methodist Church now worships at St Mary's as part of a very happy, united and growing congregation. Helen, the Vicar of the Moorland Group of Parishes worked in close partnership with her Methodist colleague: Revd David Goodall - read David's letter to Slaley people describing his move away from the area in the March News
St Elizabeth's Church
The parish of St. Elizabeth started in 1765 when the Silvertop family established the ‘Minsteracres Mission’ and a first priest was appointed with responsibility for the pastoral care of the family and the catholics in the surrounding area. Since then it developed to what it is now: a vital and vibrant faith community with active participation in the liturgy and other dimensions of parish life. The parishioners try to be a living sign of the Kingdom of God in this part of the world. There are a variety of groups for justice and peace, music and liturgy, and journey of faith. In 2015, the parishioners celebrated 250 years of faith and mission at St Elizabeth’s.
