WELCOME to SENEA – the South East Northumberland Ecumenical Area. Our website is a window into our churches, the people who belong to them, what they believe and do.
Both the United Reform Church & the Methodist Church have suggested that worship services are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidelines.
Whilst we may not physically be able to meet together in worship, there are alternatives that can help. The BBC still offers Songs of Praise on a Sunday (usually at 1.15pm); there are several times offered on radio - Pause for Thought on Radio 2 at 12.45 pm, 3.45am, 5.45am, & 9.20am; Prayer for the Day on Radio 4 (Monday to Saturday) at 5.43am; Thought for the Day on Radio 4 (Monday to Saturday) at 7.48am & The Daily Service on Radio 4 (Monday to Friday) at 9.45am. On Sunday there is Good Morning Sunday on Radio 2 from 6am to 9am & Sunday Worship on Radio 4 at 8.10am.
The Methodist Church will also be producing weekly worship sheets for people to use at home on the website at: https://mail.methodist.org.uk/?_task=mail&_mbox=INBOX&_page=2
The United Reform Church will be offering live worship every Sunday at 10 am in both audio and written formats: https://devotions.urc.org.uk/devotions/2020/03/17/sunday-worship-during-the-pandemic/
Both the Methodist Church & the United Reform Church also have daily Bible readings both online & via the prayer handbook.
Not everyone has access to the internet but perhaps those who have could print resources for other members of their community to use.
During this time when we are unable to meet together for worship it is important that we continue to care for one another.
If you are a pastoral visitor then please keep in regular contact via telephone or letter.
