Welcome to Garforth Methodist Church, an historic building, used not only for worship but for different groups and activities for all ages and to suit many needs. We are aware of the Safeguarding Policy and ensure we operate a safe and secure environment in which to enjoy activities.

After fundraising for several years to improve the premises, so that our facilities are pleasant, accesible and available to everyone, we now have a new development which joins the two original buildings and has an entrance which opens the Church to the community. This we call 'The Link'. We appreciate and value the work and support of all involved during this process.
