Circuit Covenant service 10th January
We are delight that the Revd Steve Wild, President of the Methodist Conference will be with us for our special Circuit Service on Sunday 10th January at the Church on the Heath.
This will be a Circuit-wide covenant service with Holy Communion.
Please note that following a number of requests, the time of the service has been put back by half an hour and will now be at 10.30am. There will be no morning services held here at church that day.
If there are those who would like to be part of the worship band for the service, or join in with the singing group, you are asked to get to the COTH by 9.00 am. For those that want to play an instrument, they need to be ready to start by 9.00, which means that the church will open from 8.40am.
It would also help those at the COTH to have an idea of how many people are likely to be coming from across the Circuit, and how many babies, toddlers, and children might also be present, they will be very welcome to share in the planned children's activities.
If you are planning on coming, please sign up on the list in the foyer and let Keith and or/Church stewards know.
Coffee will be served after the morning service.
We are hoping that as many people as possible will be able to stay on as after lunch, as Steve will lead us in a session on how to simply share our faith with others in a very real and everyday way. Please bring a packed lunch with you.
To give you a rough idea of timings, we would expect the service to be over around noon and the afternoon session to begin around 1:00pm/1:15pm and for everything to be finished by around 3:00pm.
