All our physical church activities, including our Sunday worship together, are currently suspended.

However we are all concerned that we stay connected and no one feels alone. Here are some ways to remain part of our church community.

Read the message from our Minister, Rachel.

We are now meeting via Zoom on Sunday evenings at 7:45 for 8pm, with someone leading us in worship, so far based on the 'worship at home' sheet provided each week (see below). There is also a Zoom meeting on Saturday mornngs, for those missing our Saturday community coffee mornings. It is possible to join via telephone if you do not have the internet or a computer. If you would like to join in with either or both of these, please email hmcnotices@hotmail.co.uk, or phone 01904 425966.

The Methodist Church is making available resources for worship in the home, which include a weekly service sheet and links to churches which stream services online.

Huntington Methodist church are live streaming their services each Sunday, and also have a recording of their previous Sunday service  accessible on the same page.

The Rev Ruth Duck is holding Zoom meetings for prayer on Wednesdays and Sundays at 9.00am and Tuesdays at 7.00pm. If you would like to join Ruth please contact her at ruth.duck@methodist.org.uk.

Please do continue to pray for the situation and for those dealing with it, particularly our health services, and remember that we have faith in a God who is in control- even when the situation is difficult. 

A prayer for those who will be hit particularly hard by the current crisis:

  • We give thanks for those who volunteer to help the poor and vulnerable across our communities.  We pray for those who are unable to carry on at present due to their own vulnerability, and ask God to raise up new volunteers to take their places.  

  • We pray for those who use foodbanks and other food distribution schemes, and for those who now may be using them for the first time after losing work due to the coronavirus crisis.  We pray that these projects will have sufficient supplies and volunteers to continue their vital work.

  • We pray for those who are facing redundancy or struggling with reduced income due to the current situation.  We pray as well for those who are working long hours, often for little pay, to keep shops and services going.

  • We pray for those who use Carecent, particularly those who have no home to go to and who are particularly vulnerable to illness.  

  • We thank the God who healed beggars and cared for outcasts that he sees and cares for each one of us, whoever and whatever we are, and that he will be with us through our difficult times.

Amen.
