Welcome to the
Peasedown St John
Methodist Church Website

October 2020
You are very welcome here!

We extend the love of Jesus Christ to you and invite you to join with us through this site. Throughout this 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 4th October we will be able to worship together again. The numbers who can attend need to be restricted at the moment due to Government guidance, however, it is amazing that we can be worshipping and praising God together after all this time. If you would like to attend a service, then please discuss this with one of the stewards in advance.

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!

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.

Lighthouse is Back!

After a 6-month break Lighthouse restarted on Thursday 1st October. For the first few weeks we are only inviting those who are currently in Years 4 - 6 and who have previously attended. Once we are used to following the necessary guidelines, we will invite new members to join. We are following strict hygiene and social distancing regulations in line with Government and Methodist Church guidance.
