New(ish!) to SMc? Welcome to the family!

Come along to the ‘Compass’ Course in the New Year.

‘Compass’ is valuable for those new to the Methodist church, those who have been coming for a long time and want to try to make some sense of things and for long-time Methodists who want to re-energise their discipleship.

Please contact Anna if you are interested, and together we will work out the best time and means of gathering. At the end of the course there will be the opportunity to be received into membership.

If you have come to SMc from another Methodist church and would like to transfer your membership, please contact Anna. We will hold a service to welcome all new and transferring members in the New Near

Prayers for our sister church, St John’s, Mtendere, Zambia

Please pray for our sections (groups of 12+ households), for the elders who lead them in worship and Bible Study, for the stewards in their pastoral visiting.

Continue to pray for our health workers in the pandemic,  especially pray that more testing kits will be brought in.
