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.
 


Christianity - Answering the Questions

 

What is a Christian?

As Christians we believe that God is revealed in Jesus Christ and we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. We strive to live in relationship with God and in the power of the Holy Spirit, and we take our place in the community of Christ's wider Church.

 

What is Christianity?

Christians believe in the God who created and sustains the universe. He is revealed in the world, in the Bible, and above all, in Jesus Christ. For Christians, Jesus is our window into God, showing us God's nature, purposes and love for the world.

 

Christians believe that God entered history in a new way in Jesus Christ. He came to demonstrate God's love for all people and to deal with the brokenness and alienation which we all experience from time to time.

 

Jesus' life was a consistent witness to God's truth: He taught about God's kingdom and surrendered his life on the cross as an ultimate act of self-giving which we celebrate on Good Friday.

 

Christians believe that the death of Jesus was not the end of the story. At the first Easter God raised Jesus from the dead. At Pentecost God's Spirit was poured out on the young Christian community to equip it for service and to show that God is changing lives and renewing the whole creation in love.

 

For more than two thousand years the Church, in many places and various shapes and styles, has borne witness to these truths and has gathered for worship and discipleship of those who respond to the Good News (the Gospel) of Jesus Christ.

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.
