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.

REOPENING UPDATE

We are aiming to reopen our church on 26 July, when we think all necessary clearance will be in place, and when we are sure that we will have carried out all we can to make church a safe  COVID-secure experience for us all.

We will let you know as soon as possible when the date has been confirmed.

Church door decorated with heartsIn the meantime - through our website, and printed materials for those without access to the web, we are providing devotional resources for you to engage with as we focus on what we can do, rather than what we can’t do.

So, our Sundays look a little different for now. Of course, church doesn’t stop just because we are not meeting yet and there are other ways of joining in with worship.

Rosemary & Philip are publishing a short interactive weekly blog to enable Methodist churches in the north of the Sutton Circuit to share a weekly meditation and encourage comments and discussion (this will usually be refreshed each Friday). Please do read and comment.

The Circuit Superintendent is supplying a short video service, available from about 10.30 each Sunday and during the following week, on the Trinity Church website

There is a live stream available from Wesley’s Chapel on Sundays at 9:45 and 11:00.

You can also download a special Methodist 'worship from home' service sheet for each Sunday.

We produced special meditations and worship resources for Holy Week and Easter Day.

 Here are some useful downloadable ecumenical prayer resources…

PRAYER FOR TODAY

A special prayer during the Coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic:

Loving God in these days of Coronavirus we begin our prayer conscious of those who mourn the loss of loved ones and whose lives have been forever changed. Lord of life, bring your hope.

We pray for all frontline and key workers, and those in education and social care, and we ask your peace and provision that they may know your strength to sustain.

We pray for those who feel especially disrupted: those whose life events and celebrations have been cancelled or postponed and those whose future hopes and dreams feel distant and uncertain.

We pray for world leaders internationally and closer to home, for wisdom, insight and clarity and for a vision of community that goes beyond our national borders

As those entrusted with the care of your creation, we pray for a right judgement in the stewardship of the earth as lockdown begins to be eased, and for our future commitment to the wellbeing of the environment

We pray for your church throughout the world as we gather in our different ways. Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us so that we and all your children may be free to worship you all our days
