Welcome to the
Peasedown St John
Methodist Church Website

Happy New Year, we extend the love of Jesus Christ to you and wish you every blessing for 2021.

We are sorry to advise that, due to the national lockdown, we have taken the decision to close the church to the congregation from Sunday 3rd January until further notice. Services will still be live streamed on our Facebook page, and can be found on website later. They can also be delivered to you on CD or DVD if you would prefer. The decision has been taken to suspend Wednesday Prayer Time until further notice.

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. Throughout the recent time of lockdown we have continued to worship and join in fellowship together in a variety of ways and it has been great to share in fellowship with many people who do not usually attend Peasedown St John Methodist Church.

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!

January 2021 (Revised 09/01/21)

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.
