We resumed usual Sunday Worship on 1st August. There will still be some rules to follows owing to Covid - but all will be welcome.
We have now stopped the "Rule of Six" Prayer Meetings, but have started a series of Bible Study meetings - held at 2pm on Fridays.
We are currently reviewing our worship area and will likely refurbish it.
We have welcomed our new Circuit Superintendent Rev Stuart Ellis, and give thanks for the service of Rev Richard Tanner who has stood down. Debbie and Dave will continue as the Ministers for our church in Ollerton.
Our church team still remain busy doing much pastoral work and worship using remote technology. See the Circuit Facebook Page -
Tues 12th Oct we are proud to host a Mencap recruitment day. Please remember those with learning difficulties in your prayers - they have had a specially tough time during the pandemic.
We continue to support Ian and Sarah Hodgson with their work in Cambodia for Wycliffe Bible Translators. We have received a detailed newsletter with many wonderful examples of good progress. They have plans to return here for a break in 2021. Please pray for their continued success and care.
Our Methodist Women also help support El Shaddai Street children rescue charity which is based in Goa.
Please consider donating and hold them in your prayers.
Our Harvest Service on 26th September was themed around AllweCan, a Methodist charity supporting communities worldwide. We watched a video about "Change begins with a Bicycle". Over £150 was raised to support their work.
Methodist Women in Britain (MWIB) - first Tuesday - is "Knit and Natter" with a focus on outreach to try to engage more local women in fellowship with Christ. Planning meeting to resume new activities 19th October with lots of ambition.
We support the Freedom Community Project. This is a Christian charity that was set up in 2008 to support people who are struggling with poverty and other issues. The project has grown to cover the North East Midlands and Yorkshire with 8 support centres, currently the nearest is at Shirebrook Methodist Church.
