Stephen’s letter 24th July, readings commencing 26th and this week’s Reflection.

Dear All

I am pleased to say that next month, exact date to be confirmed, The Drive Methodist Church will be opening for Morning Worship. As I indicated two weeks ago it will be different, shorter, no singing …… in order to be compliant with Government guidelines and you will need to book in. Once we have a definite date and all the practical arrangements are in place, I will provide more information. Please pray for the preparations.

The 26th July is Rev Sylvester Deigh’s last Sunday in the Circuit. As advised previously the farewell service has been postponed until restrictions allow us to meet together as planned and celebrate his ministry among us.
