Sorry but no recording of Rev Mark Coles this week.
Mid-week recordings are also available for viewing.

Post expires on Saturday August 15th, 2020
Yesterday, July 4th, the government has permitted the resumption of church worship subject to a very detailed list of rules and regulations. Our church trusties are studying this lengthy documentation along with guidance from the Methodist Church of GB, The Sankey Valley Circuit and our own minister and we will publish more information when possible.
It’s imperative that we don’t undo all the hard work and sacrifices made over the past few months as well as keeping everyone as safe as possible when we do finally open. Until that time we intend to keep the building closed and continue with our online worship services and mid-week pod casts from our circuit ministers. For those without internet access, there is a phone number you can call to listen to our Sunday services, please ask any steward for that number.
We pray that everyone remains safe and healthy and look forward to the day we can re-open our door.
With love and Blessings,
Latchford Methodist Church
As the weather has turned wet and dull then for anyone stuck inside with the covid-19 blues perhaps now would be a good time to knit Christmas Angels. Never knitted before? Why not give it a try and see how you get on?
We’d be grateful for as many as possible and the pattern is available on the Church website <click here> Many thanks from the Latchford Mission Team.
For those who wish to offer money for our work within the church and within our community, could you please hold onto your donations and we will collect them once services resume within the church.
For those who use envelopes to allow us to claim tax relief on your donations, you may notice that the current batch of envelopes will soon finish. We do have new envelopes but to to reduce the risks of spreading this virus, we will not distribute them until after our services resume within the church. Please just hold onto your donations for now.
It is with sadness that, with the latest advice from both the government and the Methodist Church of GB, we have decided to suspend all worship events, clubs and activities that occur within our church walls from today, except for Butterflies nursery.
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 by audio recording on our website and via a facebook page Linda has setup to today called https://www.facebook.com/groups/505960190351950/
Linda and the circuit will be publishing additional resources to help us “virtually” worship together. Until then we encourage us all to regularly keep in contact with each other using the phone, skype, whats app, facebook the list goes on. The important thing is that we continue to support each other, and stay in contact with those who don’t have a computer. Help share the news of what you read here.
A reminder that our audio recorded services can be accessed here: https://latchfordmc.org.uk/recordings-of-our-services/
