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.
 


Action for Children at Central

actionforchildrenAction for Children, a charity which was formally known as National Children’s Homes, is wholly supported by the Methodist Church. It was originally founded in 1869 and has continued ever since to support and speak out for the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the UK and in southern Africa, the Caribbean and Central America. It has changed with changing times but continues to work with other services in response to the needs of children, young people and their families in the local communities.

 

At Launceston we try to support this worthwhile charity every year by raising money through various efforts and through personal giving. Each year we hold coffee mornings and bring and buy stalls and these are supported by all the chapels in our circuit. On the ‘Action for Children Sunday’ in July a small committee organize a two course lunch for approximately 100 people in the Church Hall. This is usually prepared by the committee with many of the country churches providing scrumptious desserts. With people giving generously to a retiring collection on the same day we generally manage to raise in the region of £1,000 each year.

 

Action for Children's services

Action for Children believe all children and young people have unique potential and that they should have the support and opportunities they need to reach it. Action for Children helps over 50,000 children and young people through 480 projects across the UK promoting social justice by lobbying and campaigning for change.

 

Today, Action for Children is the leading UK provider of family and community centres, children's services in rural areas, services for disabled children and their families, and services for young people leaving care. We provide services in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and we also support work in Southern Africa, the Caribbean and Central America.

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.
