One of the church’s great purposes is to serve individuals and groups within the community in which it is located. There are many ways in which this can be achieved and obvious examples in our case are the Toddler Group and the Youth Group which provide facilities and support. Less visible is the practical support that is given to individuals who may be facing adverse circumstances, or even crises, of one kind or another.
The Christian church has access to resources that are over and above those available to self-help and other non-church groups in that the church, underpinned by prayer, is able to call upon the power of Almighty God. That can make a huge difference in all areas of life including physical and mental health, relationships, finances and bereavement to name just a few.
Our God is full of forgiveness and love and He wants the best for you so please don’t think that you don’t deserve for things to get better.
So, whether you have big problems or just feel that life is not all that it should be, why not make contact?
In Matthew 11 verse 28 in the Bible, Jesus said: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Meetings, COVID and all that……
At the time of writing, further COVID restrictions have just eased. As a church, we have continued to meet physically at 11am on Sundays throughout this year but the need for additional ventilation made this a cooler experience than was desirable in the colder weather. Over the last couple of months, we have nearly always been able to relay the 11am Sunday service live over Zoom using the mobile phone data network (please go to www.EastingtonMethodists.org.uk to access this and other non-physical meetings or let us know if you want to join by telephone).
The Monday Toddlers Group at 10:00am has resumed in the building – please make contact to ensure there is a space available.
Our Tuesday and Friday prayer meetings at 8:30 – 9:00am on Tuesdays and Fridays are being conducted on ZOOM and you are welcome to join us or let us know of any prayer requests.
Tuesday Bible Studies are running at 7:30pm over Zoom and the daytime group is restarting in the afternoon meeting at the church (please contact us for details).
Youth Club has also resumed on Fridays at 7:00pm but attendance is very low and patchy and to enable it to continue, we need more young people to want to come and turn up. The age range is 11-18 but anyone currently in school year 6 (i.e. going to secondary school this September) is welcome to join now. Church attendance is not a requirement. Please note that there will be no Youth Club meeting on Friday June 4th (half term week).
All of our events and activities are covered by appropriate COVID precautions.
If you’d like to know more; or you’d just like someone to talk to; or if we can help in any way; give us a call. Ken & Beck Burgin 01453 827414 or email: info@EastingtonMethodists.org.uk
