Worship Resources

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; 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 United Reformed Church will be offering worship every Sunday at 10 am in a radio/podcast format. Go to https://devotions.urc.org.uk/ to register for the Sunday Service email containing an order of service.

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.


Racial Justice:

The Stay Alert campaign, recent events and the Black Lives Matter protests have placed a spotlight on some of the injustices in our world.  The Baptist Union produced a ‘wonderful youth’ group resource for Black History Month (2019), it was created for Black teenagers. It may be timely to use this resource with groups of any age or ethnicity as we seek to understand the injustices which exist.

Anti-Racist Reading group

As part of their response to Black Lives Matter, Jesmond Methodist Church are setting up an Anti-Racist Reading group to educate ourselves better on issues of race and injustice. It will be accessible via zoom for anyone across the District who might like to join in.  Contact Alison Wilkinson alison.wilkinson@methodist.org.uk for details.


And remember that 'Not Everything Is Cancelled!'
