Public Announcement: March 2020
17 March 2020
Many of you will now know that the Methodist Church has today recommended that all Methodist worship services should be suspended in line with government recommendations. The same advise has also been issued by the General Secretary of the United Reformed Church. Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu have today said it is now necessary to put Church of England public services on hold until further notice.
Therefore all Church Services, Church Meetings and Activities in our churches are suspended until further notice.
We realise that some people will feel that this decision is an over-reaction inspired by fear, but we believe that we are just trying to respond in a Christian way to a difficult problem so as to save lives.
We live in extraordinary times and we will need now to think about creative ways to worship and care for one another.
In and with the love of Christ,
Rev Kathryn Taylor — AREA Chair and URC Minister
Rev Blair Kirkby — Methodist Superintendent Minister
Rev Cecil White — URC Minister
Rev Debbie Hodgson — Methodist Minister
