Welcome to Milliken Church!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We are exceedingly grateful to Almighty God for his goodness and mercy upon us. We have much to be thankful for and so, we are careful to show our gratitude to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. As we gather together today, let us set aside time to offer praise for the blessings God has so richly given.

We will once again be supporting Operation Christmas Child and donating shoeboxes which can be picked up at the Church office during the week or on Sundays, if you attend. The deadline for collection is Sun. November 15. Your help is appreciated.

Thanksgiving Sunday Communion

Greetings, Milliken Church,

Due to the restrictions placed upon us with COVID-19, we have had to cease a number of activities that have been an integral part of this church for many years. However, there is one integral part of our church that we must continue in remembrance and thanksgiving of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, as he is the life blood of our church.

On Thanksgiving Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 9:30am, join us as we share the holy sacraments of Communion at Milliken Wesleyan Methodist Church. For those who are unable to join us in person and to ensure we do our best to provide an environment with the highest safety measures, here are 3 ways you will be able to partake in the sacraments:
