A Light to Remember
A Memorial Service is to be held on Sunday, 28th November at 1830. People are invited to attend in person at Fulwood, Bamber Bridge or Ashton (West Preston) Methodist Churches. There will be an opportunity to light candles to remember loved ones. The service will also be broadcast live via the Circuit's Facebook page.
Methodist Prayer handbooks are available in the foyer for your devotions. They are priced £4.50, and if you would like one, or have already taken a copy, and are able to make a contribution to the cost please pass payment to Don Roscoe, or put in a labelled envelope in the collection plate. The most important thing is that they are used!
Guidance on Sunday worship has been updated. Booking is no longer required.
We have been back in Church for worship since Easter Sunday. Booking is no longer required for Sunday worship.
Recordings of Sunday services are once more online.
As we have lost a number of pastoral visitors and it is getting difficult to manage the current practice of pastoral care for our church community, we are currently reviewing how we have worked and alternative models we could consider. I hope to let you know more in the coming weeks. If you have any thoughts or comments please let Linda Trafford (01772 339931) or Marlene Yates know as soon as possible.
As life starts to get back to business as usual it would be lovely to add the welcome stewards back to our Sunday worship. If you have done this before and would like to start again or try it for the first time please let any of the stewards know so we can start to make arrangements for this.
