Worship at Home

This page was a blessing when churches were closed, but even with church services available again (click here for upcoming services) we are finding these home worship resources useful.

If you don't already receive it, why don't you sign up for the Circuit's weekly newsletter. That's the best way to keep up to date with everything that's going on locally, especially events and services in our sister churches.

Visit this page on the national Methodist website which collected resources to offer spiritual sustenance during locked-down isolation or click here to try out the latest podcast.

There must be other great stuff we don't know about. Click the big orange button to tell us of anything you recommend.

Worship Online 

We have tons of services each week in all our circuit churches again (check out the current preaching plan here) but one result of the lockdowns was that we found we could put lots of good stuff online. You can access a whole library of past services as well as recordings of weekly sermons on the Circuit YouTube channel.

 

Some services from Erdington Methodist Church are also shown on Erdington Church's own YouTube channel here.

You can usually sample some of these services here on our website.

Zooming in on Prayer

Alternate Wednesdays

8.00 - 8.45 pm

 

Feel welcome to join and leave when you wish. There will be an opportunity for anyone to pray if they wish, but no pressure to pray aloud if you are not comfortable to do so.

 

Joining details are in the weekly notices the Sunday before each meeting, or can be obtained from any church friend in the WhatsApp group, or from the office, from the prayer line, or from the website.

Study Online 

Would you like to engage more with Christian study?

A good place to start might be with this page, a Word in Time Bible Study from the Methodist Church. There are studies of different lengths and on different topics collected on this page.

Bible.org has tons of material too, whether you want to get to grips with a favourite book, or a topic that interests you, to look up different points of view on a specific verse or find a daily study plan that suits you.

Here are loads of possibilities from Bible Society.

All sorts of interesting materials are here on LearnReligions.com.

Short of time? Try listening to some of these one-minute talks from Christian Standard Bible.  Or perhaps meditate on a short prayer for the day from the Methodist Church.

Sing at home

All Methodists love to sing! Here's a video of some people you might recognise singing a worship song you certainly will.

You can listen to Premier Christian Radio on a digital radio or by clicking here for the online radio player you might like to join Pam Rhodes just after the 1.00 pm news every day except Sunday. She plays a few favourite songs and hymns that we can sing along with. The bathroom gives the best acoustics!
