West Pennine Moors Methodist Circuit

Zoom Services

A message from our Superintendent Minister, Rev. Stuart Smith

Dear Friends,

This is not the New Year greetings I was hoping to send round the Circuit! However, following the Government announcement that we will be moving into tier 4, and after discussion with Rev Paul Davis and other Superintendents in the District, I am writing to inform you that I have taken the decision that the right thing is for all the Churches in our Circuit to close for worship, with immediate effect. Funeral and Marriage Services can still go ahead with the published limits to numbers. It is with mixed feelings that I write this as I am aware of how much some members of our Churches have valued being able to meet together for worship, but I am also aware that we stand with our communities in these difficult times and when so many businesses and activities are closed and we are doing all that we can to prevent the spread of the virus it would not be the right thing for us to remain open.

Following the closure of our buildings we will return to holding a Circuit Zoom Service every Sunday morning at 10:30am as follows:

21st February Rev Stuart Smith

28th February Rev Rick Ormrod

7th March Rev Stuart Smith

14th March Mrs Charlotte Rumble

21st March Rev Rick Ormrod

28th March Mrs Geraldine Simister and Mrs Debra Phillips

Rev Rick Ormrod will also be continuing to hold the short midweek service on Thursday mornings at 10:00am.

If you would like to join us for any of these services, please use the Contact Us page to request the link.  (Please request the link before 13.00 on Fridays)
