This Sunday is the beginning of a Methodist New Year and so we have arranged the one Circuit Service at The Drive to enable the new staff team to be together and lead the whole Circuit in worship. The preacher will be Rev Stuart Wild, our Superintendent Minister, which you can attend in person or join via zoom. Either way you need to book.
Next Monday will be the first Staff meeting and the Local Preachers and Worship Leaders Meeting will meet in the evening. Please pray for us that we may be sensitive to where God is leading us in worship and service.
Pray also for Deacon Kim Gabbatiss, who will be working half time in our Circuit, and becomes the part time Project Co-ordinator of the Godly Play Bus.
Please check the programme schedules on the day. If you are struggling to find what you are looking for there is more information, including online worship, on the church website or please contact Stephen see below.
