We hope that you will feel at home at Bishop Auckland Methodist Church.
We would encourage people to keep an eye here at bishopmethodist.org.uk as we will post prayers, items for worship at home as well as local church and community news and a message board for you to send messages to one another. If you wish to send any items for publication here, please submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Worship in our building pauses again as we go through lockdown from Thursday 5th November to Sunday 2nd December however there continue to be plenty of online and telephone resources for you to continue worshipping at home, including our new Youtube channel. Recording will continue to take place on a Thursday for broadcast on radio and YouTube on a Sunday – find the links each week on the Church Community Worship@home tab.
[Holy Communion: Thursdays 9.30am followed by a cuppa and a chat] – suspended until further notice
[Open House: The church is open Mon-Fri 10-12noon for callers. Do drop in, have a chat and a cuppa, say a prayer in the church, make a purchase from our Traidcraft stall or just say ‘Hello’!] – suspended until further notice, but do call or email the minister if you need a chat.
[We seek to be a Church engaged in worship, witness and service. As well as the events mentioned above, we also have other regular events such as ‘Homemakers’ for the ladies, carpet bowls and Bible Study. We are also open to our local community with regular baptisms, weddings and funerals and other events on a regular basis. Church members provide catering where required.] Our physical gatherings are still limited and we continue to meet with one another virtually through this website. Please browse and find encouragement in the items posted and connection to one another that you find here. Pray for each other using the information provided and keep in touch where you can. We continue as a church to worship, witness and serve in these difficult times in this ‘hybrid’ way, some virtually, some physically (but socially distanced).
Through our individual lives and the life of the Church, we seek to bear witness to God’s love for us all.
