Evening Service, 2nd and 4th Sundays: 6:15 pm

Longholme Methodist is in Rawtenstall town centre, set back slightly from the shop fronts, just after Mr.Fitzpatricks. Due to its location, there are lots of community activities going on and special services often take place here. They offer a midweek service as well as a Sunday service. The Sunday service is upstairs in the chapel while the Tuesday service is downstairs in the backroom with a vibrant and friendly community attending both.
