As you may know, following the latest government advice, the connexion has advised that worship in Methodist Churches should be suspended for the time being. This we have, sadly, done. Thus, there will be no Sunday services in any of the Churches in the Circuit for the moment.

Orders of service, supplied by Rev Lis Mullen, can be viewed or downloaded here.

Dear Friends,

Thanks very much to Moira for this week’s service.

How the weeks fly by! It has been an interesting four weeks for us as the usually active John Mullen has had to sit still all day and every day on the sofa engaging in nothing but eating, drinking, reading, and other sedentary activities to allow his shattered pelvis to heal! (For those of you who don’t know – he had a cycling accident.) Fortunately John has plenty of patience and he doesn’t waste any time thinking it’s unfair, but I have an ornamental ‘poster’ on my kitchen wall that says:

‘Patience is such a waste of time’

so that tells you how much I’ve had to learn! We’ve also learnt how much and how many friends care with lots of flowers, phone calls, cards and visits. We are both very thankful and it helps a great deal to know folk are thinking of him with concern and prayers.

We know John will heal but we watched the programme on BBC1 last night in which David Attenborough and several other experts showed us the facts about the likely extinction of about 1 million species. This will threaten the biodiversity of our planet with devastating results for us all and the Coronavirus pandemic being one example of what we are bringing on ourselves. The earth won’t heal with inactivity – or perhaps it might. Nature has a wonderful way of bouncing back and if we can persuade Big Companies and Governments to stop raping the earth, it might not be too late.

It’s no good us sitting back and saying ‘it’s not fair’ – we all need to be active in our campaigning, buying local and wasting nothing. Every little thing we do can help to make a difference.

With love and prayers,

Easter Cross at Carver

Wherever you are on life's journey
you are welcome here.

We are an open and welcoming Church for people from all walks of life who would like to explore faith a little more. If you are new to church, or if you are looking for a church, or if you simply have questions about life we think you might find a home with us. Why? Well, we are people who have questions about faith and life and we have found that thinking about things together is better than doing it alone.  Seeking God together helps us to notice things we might otherwise miss, it helps us to support one another in good times, bad times and times when we struggle. We know that God is calling to us and wants us to know God more than we do now. We come together on Sunday seeking to connect with God and each other.

For detailed information about our services, events and activities, please read our magazine “Carver Calendar”: click here
