Please remember that you will need to complete a risk assessment before restarting activities in your church building- contact Angie if you need help with this.

Online worship produced by the Circuit can be found at our YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMZll3vyksFEonZ-EQbbhuQ and a list of online worship services around the Circuit is available at: https://www.yorkmethodist.org.uk/coronavirus-information/online-services.html For information about when individual church buildings are reopening please contact your church stewards.
District Ordinands Testimony Service
Sunday 11th July at 3pm will be our Circuit Celebration service. This will be held at Acomb and we hope some people will be able to join us in person; the service will also be livestreamed so anyone can join in via our Circuit YouTube channel, either from home or their own church.
Places for people to be physically present at Acomb are limited, and we wish to prioritise those who cannot access the livestream or who have a particular reason to be present. If you would like to be present in person please contact Amy Shephard (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to express your interest, and it will be confirmed if there is a space for you nearer the time.
More information and this year’s annual reports are available on our website at https://www.yorkmethodist.org.uk/news/circuit-celebration-and-farewell-service.html
Singing the Faith website
As more of our services move back to buildings, a reminder of the Singing the Faith Plus website, which among other things has a number of resources for Local Arrangements and themed services- see https://www.methodist.org.uk/our-faith/worship/singing-the-faith-plus/leading-worship/resourcing-local-arrangements/ for more information. These include resources to help churches engage with the God in Love Unites Us report and proposals coming to Conference later this year.
Praying for our Circuit
This week we’re continuing our Bible Month study of Mark’s gospel by looking at some more of the stories of what Jesus said and did, including demonstrating his power over the natural world in calming storms and walking on water. How might we demonstrate God’s love for both people and the natural world?
