Pentecost Praise

It was great to see all the young people who joined in the circuit’s Pentecost Praise event.  We worshipped together, played games and had a go at lots of crafts. A great time was had blow painting, decorating salt dough doves, making twisters and prayer bracelets and eating a very special cake.  A big thank you to all who helped make it such a special time.

Housing for Homelessness Gathering

Wed, 8 May 2024 10:30am

The Church at Carrs Lane, Birmingham

Interested in how the Methodist Church can be a part of the solution to homelessness?

There will a range of speakers at this gathering from within the church and from the housing world who will provide you with inspiration and the knowledge on using church property for affordable and supported housing. The gathering is an opportunity to learn about how affordable and supported housing is delivered and how you can work in partnership with housing organisations.

Meeting in person will also give you the chance to meet Methodists from other parts of the country who also wish to play their part in tackling the housing and homelessness crisis. You will also be able to hear about what Methodist churches are doing locally as part of our calling to serve the community. The event is free. Tickets are limited and available on Eventbrite.

A County Circuit Listening Space

As every church and circuit in Cumbria considers whether to become one single circuit across Cumbria, everyone’s voice is important in our deliberations.  A variety of views, hopes and challenges have been expressed from across our Cumbria District.  On the 3rd February, Place for Hope are facilitating a Listening Space – a space dedicated to us hearing and understanding the differing feelings and opinions that are being expressed.  Ruth Forsythe and Brec Seaton will host this Listening Space.
We look forward to sharing this Listening Space with you at Penrith Methodist Church on 3rd February – 9.30 am for refreshments ready for a 10am start.
