On these pages and the tabs to your left you can find more details of how we are trying to respond to these unprecedented events as a church.
With deep sadness, we have ceased all public worship and church activities at this church for the time being. This is in response to Government guidance and the directions of the Methodist Church of Great Britain. We are very sorry to do this but wish to play our part in stopping the spread of this disease.
The following activities are hereby suspended:
- morning and evening worship;
- Tuesday night meditation;
- Wednesday morning prayers and coffee; and
- PMC Singers rehearsals.
Sadly, the remainder of our Lent Reflections have also had to be cancelled and PLOS's forthcoming production of Jesus Christ Superstar has now been postponed.
For other organisations that hire our premises, please check with them directly.
More details of how the Methodist Church is responding to the crisis can be found here.
The Methodist Church joins with people of all faiths in praying for those who are suffering from the effects of this terrible disease, and for those who are working so hard to care for those affected and to prevent its spread. We look forward to welcoming you back inside as soon as possible. May God be with us all at this difficult time.
The President of the Methodist Conference has written a prayer for this time:Loving God
If we are ill, strengthen us
If we are tired
Fortify our spirits
If we are anxious
Help us to consider the lilies of the field and the birds of the air.
Help us not to stockpile treasures from supermarkets in the barns of our larders!
Don't let fear cause us to overlook the needs of others more vulnerable than ourselves
Fix our eyes on your story
And our hearts on your grace
Help us always to hold fast to the good and see the good in others.
And remember there is just one world, one hope,
One everlasting love, with baskets of bread for everyone.
In Jesus we make our prayer,
The one who suffered, died and was raised to new life,
In whom we trust, these days and all days. Amen.
