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 to Moira Rose for preparing this week’s service using the familiar and well-loved Bible story of the sower who went out to sow….

Having just come back from a visit to the piece of ground I garden round the back of Carver with some fresh mange tout peas and having seen the other plants thriving, or not, (all grown from seeds this year) the parable comes alive in a different way.

And what a privilege to be able to grow our own vegetables and flowers and watch the wonder of creation unfold from tiny seeds. In our front garden a rogue plant was growing up and up and up. I didn’t recognise it but thought I’d wait and see, rather than pull it up as a weed – though that is what I thought it was. Waiting has paid off – it’s a hollyhock! The buds are still tight and I wait with bated breath to see what colour it will be but I’m thrilled that that particular seed – planted from goodness knows where – is producing something so beautiful.

I don’t know whether my seeds are producing 30, 60 or 100 fold – but I thank God for the pleasure of sowing, the wonder in seeing the growing and the utter joy of eating fresh produce, seeing beauty in the flowers and the wonderful work of the bees and butterflies keeping it all going.

So in our prayers during this week, let us remember the farmers, market gardeners to balcony gardeners and all who work to produce the seeds and the harvest across the world especially those have lost crops and income due to the far reaching effects of the pandemic.

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
