Advent Study with Rev David Easton on Zoom.

Rev David Easton is holding three Advent meetings on zoom which anyone from across the circuit is welcome to join. The studies will be based on a book by Revd  Stephen Dawes called “Who is this Jesus born of Mary?”

His book looks at Matthew chapters 1 and 2, Luke chapters 1 and 2, and John 1 vv 1-18.  It is not necessary to have a copy of the book to join the study course but I understand it is possible to get the book through Amazon or possibly ebay.

The dates and subjects are:

30th November @ 7.30pm – looking at Matthew’s account of the birth of Jesus
7th December @ 7.30pm – looking at Luke’s story of the birth of Jesus
14th December @ 7.30pm – looking at John’s explanation of the coming of Jesus

Anyone wishing to join us should email <…..> for the zoom joining details.

Please e-mail latchfordmc@outlook.com for the contact name.

Trinity Safe Space – Help Needed

The circuit have been working with Trinity Safe Space during Covid but it has
been difficult giving the ESOL lessons and supporting the asylum
seekers. As lockdown and Covid are likely to be with us for some time
yet, we’ve been reviewing how we can support people without actually
meeting them face-to-face. We’ve identified several roles that we need
help with and I’m wondering if anybody in the Circuit has any spare time
to help with the following:

ESOL lessons – we’re using Zoom and What’s App. We have a qualified ESOL
tutor to help with any training needed

Befrienders  – loneliness and mental health is an issue with many of the
asylum seekers and we thought that if someone was prepared to telephone
them perhaps once each week or fortnight that would help. We are
currently looking at some ‘Listening’ training

Administration – as we often apply for funding, we’re looking for
someone who could collate paperwork. Also, we have been offered a
storage unit to keep clothing and food but need somebody to oversee it.

I’ve attached some role descriptions below but if anyone would like more information or an application form then please e-mail <…..>

Please email latchfordmc@outlook.com for the contact details.

Many thanks

Text4Prayer – Volunteers wanted

Text4Prayer is an initiative that was a result of prayer walking around Padgate and God speaking very clearly about a way that the community beyond the church could connect with us to ask for prayer in whatever situation they face.

There is a dedicated mobile phone that is only for texts, not calls, and each message that is received gets a personal response from one of the trained T4P team.

There are not huge numbers of texts being received – sometimes none, other times a few in a week – and the phone can be passed on to another trained team member at any time to ensure that it doesn’t become a burden.

I am now looking to grow the team and will be putting on training on Tuesday 15th December at 10am  on zoom, for anyone who is interested in learning more and possibly becoming one of those who take charge of the phone.

If you are interested in this, and are confident in using a mobile phone, please contact me for further conversation and the zoom connection.

Church Building closed for until December 2nd

It is with sadness that yet again we have to suspend access to our church building to comply with Governmental instructions that take affect on November 5th.

This national lock down will legally prevent places of worship from being used except for:

  • Funerals
  • To broadcast acts of worship
  • Individual prayer
  • Formal childcare or where part of a school
  • Essential voluntary and public services, such as blood donation or food banks
  • Other exempted activities such as some support groups

As a result, the following planned onsite Sunday Worship services have been cancelled.

Sunday 8th – Remembrance Sunday
Sunday 22nd  – Last Sunday before Advent

We pray our planned service for Sunday 6th December, 2nd Sunday in Advent, can still be held onsite. It is hoped we can still do some type of collection for Children’s toys or maybe money. We will publish further information when it becomes available.

Except for Butterflies nursery, no one will be permitted access to our church buildings.

Our Church isn’t a building made from bricks. Our church is made from our faith and love that we have for our God, our minister and for each other and so during this time we will continue to worship LIVE EVERY SUNDAY via Facebook: Warrington Methodist Worship

Anyone without facebook can watch Sundays recording of our worship service during the afternoon via our website.

If you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to phone any of the stewards or post your question our facebook site or website below.
