Central Methodist Church Launceston

reaching out with Christ at the Centre

All Church Services and Social Meetings are currently cancelled due to the Corona Virus Pandemic

Service sheets have been produced by the Methodist Church and will be provided each week on this site.
We are encouraging chapels to use this at the same time as their chapel service would have been on Sunday
so that we feel that we are still worshipping together, although not physically being together.

 
During the pandemic, Services adapted for no physical congregation will be live streamed from Wesley’s Chapel in London
Service times: Wednesday 12:45; Thursday 12:45 ; Sunday 9:45 and 11:00.
 


Methodists Against Racism

 

The Methodist Conference of 2016 has unanimously passed a resolution calling for respect and tolerance in our national life in the wake of the divisive EU Referendum Campaign.

 

The Methodist Conference believes that the British Isles are enriched by diversity and celebrates the contribution made by those who have come from other parts of the world. The Christian tradition calls for respect, tolerance, love of neighbour and hospitality to the stranger. All bear the responsibility of speaking and acting for healing, reconciliation, and mutual respect.

 

The Methodist Conference abhors and deeply regrets those actions and words which incite hatred and lead to the victimisation of groups within society and notes with concern that such actions and words have been normalised in recent public discourse. Believing that racism is a denial of the gospel and that to stay silent when others are abused is to collude with those who seek to promote hatred and division, the Methodist Conference calls:

  • on the Methodist people to challenge racism and discrimination.
  • for a political debate which neither demonises any nor leaves the vulnerable (the foreigner, the immigrant and refugee) in danger of victimisation.
  • on political leaders to work together for the good of the whole community putting the needs of the nation before party politics.
  • on all those in positions of power and authority to hear the voices of those who have been marginalised and alienated and to respond to them in ways which offer real hope for the future.

Spring Harvest

for all the family online … and its free!
Sadly, this year’s Spring Harvest event has been cancelled due to the pandemic. However even though this has left them with a £1.5m hole in their accounts which threatens their very future they are planning to launch the event online via Spring Harvest Home on YouTube from 13th – 17th April.

We can’t go to Spring Harvest this year so they're bringing Spring Harvest to us! - and it will be free and accessible for all. This is an amazing annual event for absolutely all of the family and will include adapted versions of the Big Start, Bible teaching, worship, seminars and perhaps some more light-hearted viewing, right through the day.

The team are currently working non-stop (in self isolation of course) to ensure this reaches us.

Spring Harvest Home will be on YouTube at the following link: SH2020 ...and please subscribe to the Spring Harvest channel and put the dates in your diary.

Moving forward, Spring Harvest believes that they will be able to deliver Spring Harvest again in 2021. Nobody knows what the long-term consequences Covid-19 will have for the event and our nation, but with us standing with them, they firmly believe they will be back next year.
