Sunday 20th September 10.30 a.m. Freckleton Methodist Church reopens to add to worship opportunities in our Circuit. To attend email email@example.com or ring 01772 633112 before 9.00 p.m. on the preceding Thursday.
As the other churches in the Circuit have opened it has been good to see so many people returning to church and encouraging to hear so many people say, that despite not being able to sing and the requirement to wear a face covering, it is a good and helpful experience. (Some of those who are people who said they wouldn’t be back until singing and coffee were included!)
We appreciate that returning to worship is not right for everyone at this time. So we continue to highlight opportunities for worship with a focus on those that are easily available, knowing people with the internet have access to a huge amount of material, far more than we can list so we have listed some of those with a local connection. Please note this offer changes and updates more regularly than we can keep up with so please note it was accurate when compiled but it may change so please check the programme schedules on the day.
