Stephen’s letter 24th June and this weeks reflection.

Dear All

I ask your prayers for the Methodist Conference as it meets at the National Conference Centre in Birmingham from Thursday 24th June to Thursday 1st July. Due to Government restrictions the Conference will be hybrid – meeting in person and online with approximately 60 people at the venue and others joining online.

In an agenda covering crucial aspects of the mission and ministry of the Church, key decisions will be made in the areas of marriage and relationships, equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and oversight and trusteeship. For more information about the Conference please go to https://www.methodist.org.uk/about-us/news/latest-news/all-news/the-agenda-of-the-2021-methodist-conference/ .

The Conference will formally elect the Revd Sonia Hicks as President who, together with Barbara Easton as Vice-President, will begin a year of office when the Representative Session of the Methodist Conference opens on Saturday 26th June.

On a local level I have indicated this is the last weekly mailing in this format. This edition includes information about services in July, other information will be circulated as felt appropriate but of course the summer is normally a quieter period when we have had monthly rather than weekly notices. Next week’s reflection will be the last of the series.

Regards

Stephen

Church Road Methodist Church St Annes FY8 3NQ

Stephen’s letter 17th June and this weeks reflection.

Dear All

Please find attached this week’s reflection.

The delay in the lifting of restrictions until the 19th July does mean that we will not be able to hold the 9.00 a.m. Communion Service planned on the 4th July nor the lunch following the service on the 11th July.

We continue to plan for the easing of restrictions but recognise this delay means that most groups are not likely to start up until September or later as would have been their normal pattern after the summer closures. Worship, of course, is already planned until the end of August and the next Plan, September to November, will follow in due course.

Next week will be the last time we are including daily readings on the information sheet. The readings are from The Methodist Prayer Handbook which is widely available and the new edition for 2021-22 will be available to order in a few weeks. If you have appreciated having these readings and have difficulty in obtaining them please let me know.

Regards

Stephen
