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,

Many thanks to Revd Dave Harkison from Whitehaven URC for our service this week. He invites us to listen for God speaking to us.

And that’s difficult because we are great ones for talking at God, but even so….
Sometimes it’s really difficult to pray and express our deepest thoughts.
Sometimes it feels as though to do that would be selfish, anyway.
Sometimes it feels as though we shouldn’t express those thoughts and longings because they are impossible.
Sometimes we feel we are in the deepest pit of longing and concern because of the situation around us, within us and with those we love and we just don’t have the words to express it all.

And so all we can do is hope that all those feelings, fears, hurts and hopes are seen by God, felt by God and known to God without any words from us.

But sometimes it’s difficult to let prayer be just silent listening.

I’ve found it difficult myself to just sit and be still on  Monday mornings between 8 and 9am to pray specifically for our churches and to listen for wisdom and guidance for how we might be church in what are fast becoming different times.

How we might be more missional….
How we might cope when key members leave….
How we might find more folk to take on responsibilities….
How it will be when we go back to worship after almost a year….

These are just some of the questions that bother me.

I have some ideas of how I want the church to be, but I need to pray that my mind be opened to accept difference and alternative possibilities and suggestions.  We all do.

Please join us in prayer together each Monday morning and let God speak while we listen.

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
