We welcome everyone to come along to our church to share in our worship and other activities. Services begin on Sundays at 10.30 unless otherwise stated. The church is also open for prayer before each morning service.

We welcome Donna Broadbent Kelly as our new Minister from 1 September 2017. We wish her
and her family well as they begin their life in the Aylesbury Vale Methodist Circuit

MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER

Hello Friends,

September always feels like a new beginning.  A new start in a new school or school year. A new opportunity for new routines after the long hot summer days. New uniform, new shoes to walk in and new stationary. 

This September feels very different though.  This year has shown us that no matter how much planning and organising we do, things don’t always go to plan.  Equally there is a sense that whilst September is a new beginning, it won’t be the same.  It will be a different normal, and in that we can only do so much planning and we are likely to come across the unexpected. Chapel life will be very different to the normal we have had for years. Singing is still not allowed, and services are shorter; with communion bringing its challenges. Services of celebration and remembrance will need to be altered. We are very much on a journey of discovery.  The new normal is going to feel quite strange for many of us.  But remember, lockdown became a new normal, so did the wearing of facemasks, and physical distancing. Maybe this new normal that we return to this September might take some getting used to, but we will get used to it. New doesn’t always mean that things are going to be hard either; maybe we need to be open to change? We might discover something that we have overlooked or taken for granted; we might discover new blessings.

The idea of new beginnings runs through the Bible; God is always making things new. God offers us a new opportunity each day to start afresh and to be renewed. The gift of God’s grace and forgiveness is life giving. We may be hesitant and fearful of a new beginning, a new norm; but we are not alone. May we walk on in confidence; embrace the new and seek the blessings that are waiting to be discovered. 


With blessings,

 Rev Donna
