Please see the Moorland Group website for more information about each of the churches, the majority of which are always open for anyone who wishes to visit, pray or just enjoy their peace and beauty :

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:  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 works in close partnership with her Methodist colleague:  Revd David Goodall
