Halmer End Methodist Church has ceased worship from 1st November in accordance with the latest Government instructions. All group meetings and other uses of the premises are also still suspended in accordance with Government instructions and in line with the Methodist Church guidance for the protection of life because of the Coronavirus pandemic. This situation is under constant review.
Our minister Rev. Joy Ventom is available if you would appreciate a chat, prayer or have any other need. Joy can be contacted on 01782 720267 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our pastoral visitors are providing a link with all members of our congregation to ensure that the loneliness and isolation which can be experienced in this 'Lock Down' is eased.
If you or someone you know needs help during self-isolation please call 01782 720392. Help can be provided with shopping, posting letters, obtaining medical supplies, providing food bank vouchers/food packs or even just a friendly chat. This service is run by the churches of St. James Audley, St. Johns Alsagers Bank, Halmer End Methodist and Audley Methodist.
We continue to be the Church and are still at prayer in our homes. Prayer requests are still being received and circulated to all for sharing. If you have a request please use our contact page to let us know. We are still worshipping at home with the help of on-line services and service sheets. The Methodist Church is providing a printed service sheet each week for all who cannot attend church or don't have internet access.
For those with access to the internet various services are available. The ministers of the North Staffordshire Methodist Circuit are arranging a service each week and the audio version of this can be accessed here with the video version here. A Weekly Bulletin is also still being prepared by the Circuit staff and this is included on our web site at the bottom of this HOME page. The Bulletin also includes other live streamed services.
Throughout this very difficult time in the life of our nation may you know the Peace of the Lord Jesus Christ with you.
Remember Jesus is alive as we celebrated at Easter. His disciples discovered it and millions of people have met Jesus since the day of his resurrection. You can read about some of those people who have met Jesus recently in a book 'Hope for all' which is available from the church. In the book you can read people's stories of how their lives have changed since they met Jesus. Email David at email@example.com for a copy of the book.
