Re-opening Churches for Worship

A Circuit Plan is currently being drafted for the coming months. This will include online and in-person services at our churches, and will be made available on the Circuit Website Downloads page.

Wimpole Road, Mersea, and Castle Churches have opened for in-person worship. Other Circuit churches are also looking to recommence in-person worship, although some have revised their opening dates after the June 21 date for relaxation of Covid restrictions was extended. Currently all churches that do open will be following Government guidance regarding masks and social distancing, etc.)

We will continue to upload content to YouTube every Sunday until our churches have resumed in-person worship. We will then review what online activities should continue, and your comments would be welcome.

We continue to experiment with Live-Streaming the 10:30am Sunday Service from Castle. It is now available on Castle’s YouTube Channel here, and you can access the Live-Stream playlist here. Alternatively, you can use the Live Stream link, from the Services page, on this website. To join future services live from home, please Subscribe to that channel (and click the Notification Bell icon) to be notified when this service is about to go live. Contact someone from our technical team if you need more help with this.

Taking Stock will still appear from time to time, but not every week.

There are Zoom evening services for the whole Circuit on most Sunday evenings, hosted by various Churches. Your local email Hub Co-ordinator will send you an email with a link to join these. (If you haven’t received an email please contact one of your church stewards).

Your local Methodist Church website will give more details about groups and activities which are taking place there – click on that Church in the Menu on the Circuit Website.

 

For your thoughts and prayers:-

As we begin to return to in-person worship, continue to remember all of our Circuit Ministers, Supernumeraries, and Lay Preachers in your prayers. Rev Ken Chalmers is now back to full time working. Rev Joe Adams remains unwell, and unable to carry out his usual duties for several weeks. Please pray for Joe, but do not contact him at this time. Any pastoral concerns should be directed to our Superintendent Rev Alan Jenkins by email or telephone. The Circuit has just appointed a new Circuit Administrator – pray for Helen as she settles into her new role.

Remember in your prayers folk from across the circuit who are suffering from various health problems at this time, any members and friends who have recently tested positive for Covid-19, and those known to us who are NHS or other keyworkers.

The Methodist Conference in Birmingham has recently finished. For more details follow this link on the UK Methodist Church website.

Remember those newly ordained at Conference in your prayers, and remember all those ministers and their families who will be moving Circuit in the coming weeks.

News from Essex County Council

An  initiative driven by Essex County Council and other local agencies and has huge potential to both support our local communities and also develop and improve engagement between our Churches and the community together with the likes of the local GP practices etc. There is a training session planned, and it would be good to get a number of people from across our Circuit to join.  In summary this particular initiative and the training is focused on how faith groups can engage with and support Social Prescribing and off the back of this how it might assist the Churches.  C360 Social Prescribing Awareness Training Flyer
