Covid-19 

Covid poster for Barnes

We are now open for weekly worship over the summer. Please click on the Sunday worship tab for dates and times. 

We are taking a gentle approach with the relaxing of restrictions and ask that you continue to wear a face covering to church at this time.  Sadly singing isn't permitted at the moment but do feel free to hum along!

More details of how the Methodist Church nationally is responding to the crisis can be found here.

The Methodist Church joins with people of all faiths in praying for those who are suffering from the effects of this terrible disease, and for those who are working so hard to care for those affected and to prevent its spread. 

The President of the Methodist Conference has written a prayer for this time:

Loving God
If we are ill, strengthen us
If we are tired
Fortify our spirits
If we are anxious
Help us to consider the lilies of the field and the birds of the air.
Help us not to stockpile treasures from supermarkets in the barns of our larders!
Don't let fear cause us to overlook the needs of others more vulnerable than ourselves
Fix our eyes on your story
And our hearts on your grace
Help us always to hold fast to the good and see the good in others.
And remember there is just one world, one hope,
One everlasting love, with baskets of bread for everyone.
In Jesus we make our prayer,
The one who suffered, died and was raised to new life,

In whom we trust, these days and all days. Amen.
