Although the current Government measures to control the rate of COVID-19 infection permit worship to take place, on the advice of the Chairs of the London District of the Methodist Church, it was decided to suspend Methodist worship services at the Church. However, Sunday morning worship will recommence at the Church on alternate Sundays from November – see the Church Calendar on the left hand side of the Home Page for specific information.
We have re-opened our premises to Users Groups that are able to operate under the current HMG Tier 2 restrictions and each are considering whether they feel able to return. For information about individual groups please contact them direct – their contact details can be found on this web site under ‘Regular Activities’.
The Thursday Prayer and Devotional meeting and Wednesday Club remain suspended until further notice – prayer concerns can be passed ‘in confidence’ to Margaret Boreham for the prayer group who are meeting and sharing concerns ‘on line’

The government’s latest guidance says.
Stay Alert, Control the Virus, Save Lives
“We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert.”
This means :
• When you go out maintain a safe distance (2 metres apart where possible or 1 metre +)
• When in Shops, on public transport or in crowded places wear face covering
• Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms
• Wash your hands regularly
• Avoid touching your face
• If you cough or sneeze use a tissue and dispose of it
• Wipe down or disinfect surfaces that may be touched by others – e.g. door handles
• Isolate if you have symptoms and go on line to www.111.nhs.uk or call 111 for advice
If anyone has pastoral needs or is aware of any of our community that needs help or support, please tell your Pastoral Visitor, a Steward or our Minister Abe so that we can respond appropriately
REMEMBER:- Hands, Face, Space – Stay Alert; Control the Virus; Save Lives
