Worship

Please visit our Worship Page  for details.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH, 6 PM

Worshipping with the Iona Community, led by Jonathan Robinson.
This will be live in the sanctuary only, not livestreamed.

An opportunity to spend an hour or so learning new songs and hearing a little of the experiences of a Methodist boy who ran away to the Hebrides. We’ll conclude with a short evening liturgy drawn from the Iona Abbey Worship book.

Visit to the New Room Bristol

The last church newsletter had an item from Barbara Hickman (p17) about a possible visit to the New Room in Bristol in October;  this would link well with the current Methodist Way of Life series of worship at SMC.  Barbera asks that anyone interested should get in touch with her by the end of August, please.

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

Give thanks for the peaceful transition to a new president and party in government,and pray that they will achieve the good things they hope to deliver.

Give thanks that our fellowships can be maintained digitally,even when we cannot meet in person because of COVID regulations.

Pray for the vaccination programme and for a continuing fall in the number of deaths from COVID.
