Other Events

Prayer Changes Things – prayer service at Castle Methodist Church at 9:30am to 10:00am on Saturday 5th January led by Jane Dansie.

Circuit Event – As a circuit it feels like we are experiencing a limitation of resources like never before, but at the same time there are exciting opportunities opening up to us. Together, and together with God, we can make the most of these possibilities to continue God’s work.
On the 19th January 2019 we will meet at the Ark for a day-long workshop (10am to 4pm) to identify what our circuit priorities might be and to look at how we might work Better Together to be fruitful in God’s mission.
This exploration and celebration of our shared place in God’s work will conclude with a circuit service on Sunday 20th January at 11am at Castle.
Please see the poster on the notice board. Sign-up sheet to follow.

If you are visiting us for the first time please add your name to our Visitor’s Book which is on the bookcase in the entrance vestibule. Many thanks.


Contacts – If you need prayer or help in any way please contact your pastoral visitor or call Rev Paul Howes on 01206 514828.
