Latest Information:

This week:  

Our Sunday Zoom worship service begins at 10.30 am.
We are changing the way we begin these services. Lewis will be playing music as you enter and everyone will remain muted, with a share screen explaining what is happening and giving the notices.

On Thursday evening, our circuit zoom prayer meeting will begin at 7 pm - please pray at that time whether you join us on zoom or not. It is good to know that people are praying all around the circuit at that time.
This will be followed at 7.30 pm with our
zoom reflective worship, this week led by Clive Longhurst.


On Friday morning, we hold our weekly
zoom coffee morning
at 10.30 am. 

  If you have not used one of our Zoom services before but would like to join in please email the Circuit Administrator.

Harvest Worship 2020

In anticipation of Harvest Worship with Rev Graham Thompson on Sunday 27 September 10.30 am and the Harvest Supper the following day, Monday 28 September, starting at 6.00 pm, please see further details about practical arrangements below.  Reminders about these arrangements will also be mentioned at our zoom Circuit Coffee Mornings. 
 
  • It would be lovely for as many folk as possible from around the Circuit to be able to join one or both of the Harvest events, including folk who do not have access to the internet/zoom facilities.  Some of these folk may appreciate an invitation to join with you to share in the thanksgiving if you are willing and able to do this safely and within the permitted social distancing rules.  Remember, only do what feels right for you.   
  • If you are speaking to others who do not receive our email communications, do remind them that they could use a 'dial-in' facility from a landline to enjoy listening to worship on the Sunday.  It is simple to join by phone and anyone who wishes to do this should contact me for a 'dial-in' number to access the worship.  Others who have used the dial-in facility say how much they enjoy being able to participate in the life of the Circuit. 
  • For the Harvest Worship on Sunday 27th, there is a request for everyone to 'bring along' ie have available near their screen, an item for which they feel thankful. 
  • You may have seen some ideas in September's Messenger magazine for creative things to do/make in anticipation of harvest time.  Please feel free to display your harvest decorations on both Sunday and Monday so that everyone can enjoy your efforts on these special occasions. 
  • Don't forget the All We Can Harvest Appeal - Change Begins with a Bicycle.  There has been information about the appeal in recent Messengers, but as a reminder All We Can is raising funds to enable people in less developed areas of the world to continue to work and support their families despite the immense hardship involved in even reaching a place of work. You can read more at allwecan.org.uk/harvest
  • The Circuit hopes to make a combined donation to All We Can.  If you wish to make a donation, send it to the Circuit Office at Alcombe Methodist Church, Lower Meadow Road, Alcombe TA24 6AN.  Cheques should be made payable to All We Can.  Mark your envelope with All We Can.  If you have an All We Can gift aid envelope, you can use that to send to us.  The closing date for receipt of donations at Alcombe is Monday 5 October.
