The recent news of ongoing and longer term restrictions on our movement and our gathering will undoubtedly have brought disappointment and anxiety to many. However, at present those churches that have re-opened for worship, taking careful account of the guidance offered, may continue to do so. The wide range of opportunities for worship and fellowship being offered by many Circuits and local churches will continue to be vital for the spiritual nurture of many and we remain grateful to all those who are making it possible to worship, pray and share fellowship together. So, however, you are being enabled to worship, may your connections with others and your encounters with God continue to resource and inspire you as you approach the joys and challenges of each day.
Revd Gill Newton – September 2020
Methodism in this area has a strong local presence, a faithful tradition of worship and a growing sense of commitment to the wider community. Combined with strong local loyalties there is an awareness of the need for change, which has resulted in a new sense of local ministry and neighbourhood action in several places.
We hope you find here what you're looking for.
