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

‘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 soon.

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

Pray for the Women’s Christian Fellowship at St John’s, giving thanks for their caring ministry, especially to bereaved families.

As the fourth wave of COVID continues to spread, give thanks for the United Church of Zambia’s nine health facilities and for Gina Oliver, the UCZ health secretary, working with them.
