The Church in Toft is a Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP), meaning that the Church of England and Methodist Church meet and work together in the village. The church meets in either St Andrew’s Church or the Toft Methodist Chapel each Sunday morning.
As Toft is a village of only 550 people, the church is thoroughly integrated into the life of the community and embedded in all that goes on. There is a wonderful team of volunteers and lay ministers who run the church and its activities and there is a good musical tradition. The church is actively involved in running the fete, coffee mornings, “The Spring Feast” and other events which bring the community together.
Wednesday Morning Prayer – often with a Celtic flavour – is a pillar of the worshipping life, creating a steady rhythm of prayer through the week.
