30 April: Church Reopening

Church Council have agreed to reopening the church for worship on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in June (13th and 27th). We look forward to welcoming at least some of you
back!

Because we know that others of you may not as yet feel confident about returning, at least one of these services will be live streamed; the other is likely to have a prerecorded version available. Both of these will be accessed from YouTube as we have been doing.

Details for the services are yet to be decided and will be announced nearer the time, e.g. whether it will be necessary to book a place. If you have any queries or questions, please contact the stewards team.

30 April: Vocation Sunday

For Vocation Sunday this week, there are two documents here, asking whether you might consider becoming a Methodist Member or a Church or Circuit Steward.
