Rev Andy Hardwick
As we experience these extraordinary times of Coronavirus worldwide, we are not able to meet together in the normal way. Even our meeting together may be threatening to the health and wellbeing of others and so we need to adapt, to express faith and our care for each other in new ways. Most of our regular activities are suspended. We will keep in touch with each other by phone, email, letter, Facebook and so on and of course we will pray for each other.
intend to find ways of sharing fellowship and worship so please keep looking at
the church website to know what is going on.
In line with Government advice, we have suspended all activities including worship services for the foreseeable future. Instead, we are developing new ways of worship using modern technology.
Last Sunday, we met for worship using Zoom, video conferencing software. The service was recorded and is available on our Facebook page. Or click here to view the service on YouTube
Separately, you can download a service sheet for Sunday 12 April for anyone wishing to worship from home. It includes YouTube links for the hymns. Press here to download
You could join the service from John Wesley's Chapel, London, as it is streamed each week. One of the broadcasts begins at 11.00 am. Go to the church's live streaming page and follow links there to watch the service.
Praying for folk in need has been a feature of our services for time immemorial In these times, we no longer have the chance to write people's names in our Prayer Book. So instead we invite you to use the email form on the Contact page to let us know for whom prayers are asked, with an indication of their needs. Names and needs will be passed to the members of the Prayer Circle who will maintain an unending chain of prayer. Use the same means if you would like to join the Prayer Circle.
If you would find it helpful for your daily devotions to have a prayer and a short bible study that changes each day, then please investigate the links below.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, all our meetings and activities are suspended for the foreseeable future:
This also includes the Annual Church Meeting that was planned for 22 April. This will be rescheduled after self isolation measures, etc, have been relaxed.
