Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I have to inform you, that following Methodist Connexional advice, our Sunday Worship is suspended until further notice and all our Church meetings have been cancelled.

Thankfully, our church is more than just its buildings and we are thinking of ways in which we can continue to support each other and worship together.

I know this is a time of anxiety and fear for many and I would ask that we keep in contact with each other via phone calls/ Skype/ emails to cheer and uphold one another in the love of God.

Please feel free to contact me on 01344 774967 or by email: sharon.gardner@methodist.org.uk if needed.

There will be weekly messages and updates on our website and via our notice sheets which can be emailed out or posted. If you are not sent them already and wish to receive them, please let Barbara Rush or one of the stewards know.

Remember, we have a great God who is bigger than all our fears.

I end with some words from Revd. Catherine Bowstead:

This time of crisis will pass, and our God will remain the same.

With love and prayers,



Philippians 4: 6-7

The Lord is near.

Do not be anxious about anything but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
