Hazelbury Bryan

Hazelbury Bryan Methodist Chapel

Hazelbury Bryan is a widespread village consisting of a number of small settlements. The nearest town is Sturminster Newton (5 miles). The population of the village is about 800 but is expanding with new housing. There is an Anglican Church in Droop, which is historically the centre of the village, a Primary School and Pre School, Village Hall, a Public House and a Recreation Ground including a small play area. A well used small shop with a Post Office facility also is found.

The chapel at Hazelbury Bryan was built in 1863 (on this particular site). The worship area has been refurbished with pews replaced by chairs adding flexibility to the Chapel’s use. Windows have also been replaced and the Sunday School room refurbished. Adjoining the car parking area is an area of grass adding to the facilities.

We are an active fellowship of all ages. Family services are normally held at 9.40am on the first Sunday of the month, with evening worship at 6.00pm every week. Toddler and Youth Clubs (age 3 to7 and 8 to 11+) are held on Fridays during term time led by the circuit youth worker who is a member and worshipper of the chapel. Additional ad – hoc services are also arranged during the week. A craft club meets on the second Tuesday of the month with a varied programme throughout the year. Coffee mornings are also held on the first and third Wednesday mornings with income shared with a nominated charity changing every six months. A film session is held every other Thursday evening at 7.30 when various Bible topics are shown and discussed. A Bible study is led by a Lay Anglican Minister every other Tuesday evening at 8 pm at his home.

Our overall vision is to attract all age groups to a knowledge of the unconditional love of God through Jesus Christ. We pray that younger adults will, in particular, be able to enhance the active work within the Chapel and outreach into the local community.
