We are located 5 miles from Pocklington and 12 miles from York, 200 metres west of the Melbourne Arms on the south side of Main Street. There is on-street parking. If a boat is your preferred means of transport, the Pocklington Canal is navigable from Melbourne and connects to the national waterways system via the River Derwent.

The church was first built in 1811 by the Wesleyan Methodists, and modernised for its 200th anniversary year resulting in a warm, welcoming building with a modern interior ideal for pilates, yoga, birthday parties, music groups, training events, charity fund raisers, coffee mornings, etc. The church seats 70 and facilities include a meeting room, wheelchair access to all areas including a wheelchair accessible toilet, audio loop system, kitchen, small garden and baby changing facilities. The building and its facilities are available for hire at £10 per hour. Tables and chairs can be arranged as wished. A plasma screen with audio and facilities for presentation and DVD material is available, to be arranged in advance. Contact 01759 318918 for enquiries about hiring the Church.
