Church Services and Events CANCELLED due to COVID-19

Dear Friends,

In the light of the latest Government advice we shall be cancelling all the weekly worship and church meetings as the majority of those attending are in the vulnerable age-group. This coming week and for as long as we need, there will be no Craft group, Lent group, Men’s
meeting, Friday Coffee drop and Women’s Circle. We hope to resume all our activities at the beginning of June.

You can access weekly service sheets to use at home, and find the link to the live streamed services from Wesley’s Chapel here. We also have a list of resources you may find useful on our Bible Study page, including The Methodist Church’s daily Bible reading – A Word in Time.

Keep in touch with each other by telephone and for those who have access to email and Facebook we shall put out regular messages in order to encourage each other. Songs of Praise on television is also an encouragement so keep close to God and each other by
praying for the situation and for each other and keep positive.

With love and prayers.

COVID-19 Guidance

The Methodist Church has given guidance regarding attending church and COVID-19, which can be read in full here. The following is of particular importance:

“Older members and those with medical conditions causing weaker health and greater vulnerability should consider not attending church for the time being if they’re worried about infection. This is an act of mutual care and concern, and is not a desire that people ‘give up’ Church.

“If you are not an older member and don’t have underlying health conditions, but are feeling ill and/or displaying the symptoms of a cold, please consider staying away from the service.”

Our services at Monks Road will be continuing as normal, however if you choose to stay home then you may find the following resources helpful:

Live streamed service each Sunday at 11am from Wesley’s Chapel which can be found here.

Weekly service sheet, including links to the hymns on YouTube, which can be downloaded each week from the Methodist Church’s website here.

We know that this is an anxious time for many, and hope that this guidance and these resources may help you.
