Alton Webteam: March 2020
Following Government and Church advice all services and social gatherings/meetings at the Methodist Church have been suspended until further notice.
We look forward to keeping in touch and welcoming you back soon!

It is with sadness that we recommend that worship services in Methodist Churches are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance. We would encourage people who lead services to think about how worship might be offered in different ways, including online and using worship at home sheets.
Suspending services means that we advise that baptisms will not take place in public worship and if you have a wedding planned in a Methodist Church you should speak to your minister. While funerals may still take place, we would advise that the number of people attending is limited as per the Government's advice.
In terms of Church business, we recommend that all meetings including church councils and circuit meetings should be cancelled.
