FOLLOWING JESUS AT THE HEART OF WALLINGTON...
We're glad you're here. We're a vibrant church with people of all ages and all backgrounds and a varied programme of events, groups and services. Take a look around and see what interests you.
(Through our website, and printed materials for those without access to the web, we have been providing devotional resources throughout the lockdowns and for anyone still uncomfortable about returning to live worship. )
NEWS ABOUT OUR CHURCH SITE
members of Wallington Methodist Church are excited that we are about to embark
on a new
chapter in the history of our Church.
We are hoping to create a new worship and community venue on our site. We are therefore marketing the site over the coming months to enable a developer to come on board with us to facilitate this.
It will mean the demolition of the existing church building, but unfortunately the current church is no longer fit for purpose and a new building will provide much-needed facilities to take us forward.
Watch this space!
EVENTSWe are an active church, serving each other and the wider community.
Our regular events include Coffee with Cake and Tabletop Market every second Saturday of the month and Tunes and Tea on the last Monday of the month.
Our next Coffee with Cake and Tabletop Market will be on Saturday, May 14th.
We regret that the Tunes and Tea planned for April 25th has been cancelled because of musicians' illness. The next event will be on Monday May 30th.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
PRAYER FOR THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE
God of peace, your prophet Isaiah promised
swords would be turned into ploughshares,
and your son’s mother Mary proclaimed
the mighty would be put down and the humble exalted:
visit the people of Ukraine;
deliver them from fear, violence,
attack, injury, destruction, death;
and give them courage, solidarity and allies
in their hour of vulnerability and sorrow.
Turn the hearts of those bent on war and invasion.
Strengthen the hand of all seeking to halt conflict,
restore order, and pursue justice.
And make this moment of peril
an occasion for your Holy Spirit to show your world
the cost of conflict and our dependence on one another.
In Christ our Lord, who went to his death because of our hatred,
and rose again because our hatred
is never stronger than your indomitable love. Amen
