Worship at Home
Just because we can't gather together at the moment, there's no reason why we can't pray, sing, study God's Word or listen to wise and thoughtful teaching. There is a fantastic amount of material available to nourish our faith and help keep us God-centred. Anything you see on these pages that's underlined is a link - click it to go to what's being described.
We've collected some ideas here already - be sure to scroll down to see everything. Have a look too at the Junior Church at Home Page. As well as Junior Church activities, it has some links to other places where our young people can get some virtual entertainment as they can't meet up with their friends.
Revd Malcolm's bulletin for 6 September talks about the future of worship - online and in person. Read it here.
With things changing every few days at the moment this note from Revd Stephen and Revd Malcolm for 13 September captures the latest from the Methodist Church, and this note for 20 September includes a summary of what all the churches in our Circuit are working towards in terms of live or shared worship.
A lot of people in our Circuit have committed to stopping what they are doing at midday each day (or at 9.00 am on Sundays) to say the Lord's Prayer knowing that we will be doing so in communion with many friends. Please join us if you feel you would like to, and perhaps you might like to reflect on a different verse each day.
But there must be great stuff we don't know about. Click the big orange button to tell us of anything you recommend.
