Worship This Week

As the impact of the Covid pandemic abates, we are able to worship together again in person, and we currently plan that all of our services will be held live, in person and in church. 

These live services are also normally live-streamed on YouTube, so you should be able to join in, even if you don't yet feel confident to join the congregation in church.

See the details below to find details of last Sunday's and next Sunday's services.

Further down the page are details of other worship resources that you may find helpful.


22nd May 10:30

A celebration for Aldersgate Sunday with Lisa Foster and friends.

Wesley Day, or Aldersgate Day, is observed by Methodists on 24th May, recalling the day in 1738 when John Wesley attended a meeting in Aldersgate and received a special blessing.

Despite some difficulties with our internet connection, this service was live streamed, and remains available at this YouTube link.

22nd May 18:00

Local Preachers Celebration Service, including a 60-year service award for Hyacinth, and also recognition for Martin Wallis.

This service was recorded, and is now available here on YouTube. This was a remote, unmanned recording, with a single static camera view, so please forgive the deficiencies!


Previous services

Where previous services have been pre-recorded or live-streamed, you can still find the recordings on our Archives page.

29th May 10:30

The Rev Nina Johnson's last service at The Square, before she leaves for pastures new.
