Our superintendent, Rev'd Graham RansomWhether you live or work in the South Lakes or are here on holiday, we look forward to being able to welcome you once more - we are following official advice on coronavirus, and as a result, some of our churches are resuming public worship gradually and carefully.

If you come here often - which is great - click Refresh in your browser or press the F5 key to ensure you see all the updates.

As the situation develops, we have been finding ways of sharing in worship by other methods.  Many useful links can be found on the "Thoughts for Sunday" page, which is being updated frequently.

The official advice offered by the Methodist Church nationally can be found here.

Meanwhile, please focus on avoiding infection and providing support and encouragement to one another by phone or digital means.  Prayer for one another is a great unifying force.  Some will feel able to offer practical help too - you are advised to contact a minister in this case.
