Welcome to the
Peasedown St John
Methodist Church Website

December 2020
You are very welcome here!

As we enter this time of advent, we welcome you to our website and extend the love of Jesus Christ to you. Throughout the recent time of lockdown we have continued to worship and join in fellowship together in a variety of ways (streamed services, DVD and CD recordings) and it has been great to share in fellowship with many people who do not usually attend Peasedown St John Methodist Church. Starting from Sunday 6th December we have been able to worship together again, although the numbers who can attend still need to be restricted at the moment due to Government guidance.

If you are unable to join us in person, for whatever reason, then please share and connect with us through this site. Our goal as a church is to love as Christ loved and to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ through its variety of worship services, through spiritual development, outreach and mission. 

So no matter where you live and no matter what your beliefs are, if you are looking for some support or encouragement during these difficult times, or if you are looking for some understanding of what's happening to us and the world, or if you simply want to connect with other people, you are very welcome here!

Lent Reflection

Wednesday evenings, 7pm

Every Wednesday during Lent our Minister, Rev David Winstanley, will be broadcasting a short Lent Reflection via the Church Facebook page. Members of the Church congregation who live in the village should have received a Lent bag of items to accompany the reflection. If you don't have a bag, then the items you’ll need are: a small piece of sandpaper, a mirror, a shell, a small stone, a nightlight and a small flower bulb.

Seeds "Grab and Go Bag"

Wednesday mornings

9am – 9:45am

Our Seeds Parent and Toddler Group is not yet permitted to meet in the church building, so as a way of making ourselves available to our Seeds families, Marilyn and Julie are going be in the Church car park on Wednesday mornings to say hello to our families and give out a "Grab and Go Bag" which contains an activity to do at home.

Psalm Walks

Psalm Walks are a new way of worshipping and it is for all ages. It allows you to spend time alone with God or to share it with friends and family – remember to keep within covid restrictions.

Psalm walks will be produced for the 1st & 3rd Sundays in the month. During the week, please send Julie any of your thoughts, reflections, pictures, videos clips from your Psalm Walk and she will put them together to create some sort of response/feedback for the Sunday morning service on the 2nd & 4th Sundays.

You can go on your Psalm walk anywhere (even in your own garden) and at any time during the week, but if you are doing the Psalm Walk with children then why not join Julie for a Psalm Walk in the church garden on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month between 9.30am and 10.00am.

Sheets are available to download by clicking here. There is one for adults and a simplified version for children, but they both use the same Psalm and follow similar themes and ideas (you can tell which is the children’s one because it has a picture of some children in the top right corner). This is a great way to worship outdoors and we hope many people of all ages will get involved and be blessed through it.
