As you may know, following the latest government advice, the connexion has now advised that worship in Methodist Churches can restart subject to strict conditions.  Each of our churches is making its own decision about how and when to return to our buildings.

For the latest information on this website, please refer to the Home page.

As the situation develops, we have found ways of sharing in worship by other methods.  Orders of service, supplied by Rev Lis Mullen, can be viewed or downloaded here, along with many other useful links.

Rev Martyn's video services, and details of online Communion services, are here.

Dear Friends

Thank you to David for preparing the service this week and I am sending a very short note to accompany it this week as I am trying to take some time off.

I hope you all had a happy Easter and were able to access some other good Easter worship besides that prepared and streamed locally. It was really good to be able to deliver a service ‘live’ after so long together with Martyn, Alison and Pam and I have to confess I was quite nervous. It also felt strange just talking to a camera and just hoping that someone, somewhere was listening!

Today we were able to drive for about one and half hours to meet John’s sister and husband halfway from their home for a walk together. We hadn’t seen them for about 8 months and it was good to feel able to begin to reconnect again. Let’s live in hope that this lockdown will soon be over and we can cautiously begin to gather together.

With love and prayers,

Lis


Monday Morning Prayers

Dear friends,

A number of us have committed to pray regularly for direction and guidance for our church at Carver.  After 3 months I am interested to know how you have found this.

  • Has there been anything encouraging in the prayer practice?
  • Has prayer begun to alert us to God’s intentions for us in this place?
  • Have our prayers helped us imagine what our life together after lockdown could be like?
  • Has the suggested focus each week been helpful or unhelpful? (April's focus is here.)

I would be very glad to have your observations. In April the elders will be spending time trying to discern our way forward when the church gathers once more. Your observations will be a valuable part of our discussion.

With my thanks,

Judith

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

Whether you are able to join us on Sunday or at one of our weekday activities you will be very welcome.
