Streamed live online

On 28 February, the President of Conference, Rev. Richard Teal, who was previously Chair of our District, will be visiting Cumbria.  He will be leading a streamed service from Kirby Lonsdale at 4pm - details here.

From 21st February, the First Sunday in Lent, Ulverston Methodist Church will stream its 10:30 am service live via Zoom, rather than simply upload them to Youtube. For details of how to join the Zoom session, see the Ulverston page.  The services will be streamed live to the Ulverston Methodist Church Youtube channel, and will remain there to be viewed later.

Each Sunday at 10:30am, Grange Methodist Church streams a service on Facebook from the Manse.  You can go to the "Posts" section of their Facebook page here.  Don't worry if you have never used Facebook, just click on the picture to start the video playing.  At other times, you will find videos of past services which you can watch when you wish.  Links to previous Grange videos on YouTube can be found here.

Worship on the radio and TV

A service is broadcast each Sunday on Radio Cumbria at 8am.  The broadcasts are available to "catch up" on BBC Sounds for up to 30 days - click here.  Good if you don't fancy listening at 8am!

Note that this will play the entire 3-hour programme; the service will start about 2 hours in, so you may want to drag the pointer at the foot of the screen to find the beginning.

Radio 4 Longwave also broadcasts a daily service Monday to Friday at 9.45am

  • Radio 4 8.10am Sunday Worship - catch up last 4 Sundays here
