Meet the Minister

Hi, I’m Ruth Jeffries and have had the pleasure and privilege of being the minister here at Ashley Methodist Church since 2015. I am also the minister of Market Drayton Methodist Church and Hinstock Methodist Church. I am married to Nick & mum to 2 girls. I am a musician by training, and a lover of films, box sets and chocolate! My passion is for the church to be deeply involved in the community and to share the story of God as seen through the life of Jesus and share the unconditional love, amazing grace and unparalleled forgiveness offered to us all. I welcome you to come and join our faithful and deeply lovely bunch of Christian folk as we seek to learn more about Jesus together.


COVID UPDATE – 16th September 2020

While we are not open yet, we do hope that we will have some news for you soon. The situation is being constantly monitored and any decisions will be publicised here. However, if you would like to attend an in-person service, another church within our Circuit (Market Drayton Methodist Church) will be holding 10.30am services weekly, starting on Sunday 20th September. Have a look at their website for more information on how to book a place at one of their services.

Online Sunday worship, will continue to be streamed at 10.30am on our Circuit YouTube account, or you can access it below.

Stay safe and we shall open our doors to welcome you again as soon as it is possible to do so.


It is with sadness we announce that worship services at Ashley Methodist Church are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance.

This also means that all groups that meet in the church will also cease to meet for the time being. Please ‘like’ our facebook page @MarketDraytonMethodist or check back here to find out about how we are supporting our community during this challenging and unprecedented time.

Please contact us either on our contacts page or by email or by calling 01630 655957 (leave a message and we will get back to you) if you feel that we might be able to help or support you in any way.

Each Sunday at 10.30am you will be able to watch and participate in an act of worship, from MDMC by viewing the video below, or via our facebook page.


Worship will stream here each Sunday at 10.30am and be available thereafter:

Previous worship services from this online period can be found on our YouTube channel

What Can You Expect?

A Warm Welcome

An atmosphere of warmth, welcome and peace pervades this building and the people of Ashley Methodist Church.  We really enjoy meeting new people and welcoming visitors.  We are a sociable, welcoming and caring community.


Worship is never dull here.  With a team of local preachers as well as our minister to lead services there is variety in style and content.  We all enjoy a good sing of mostly traditional hymns but we are ready to try more modern ones. Services are held on Sunday mornings at 10.30am followed by fellowship over coffee and biscuits. An informal bible study takes place on Friday mornings in our own homes and is open to all regardless of church loyalty.

For Children

A team of dedicated folk take time out to teach our children in the Junior Church each week. We have occasional ‘All-In’ services where children actively participate in the worship. We also have a puppet ministry team who work with the young people in helping share the gospel.

We Look Forward To
