Methodists Worship Online @ Easter

Updated: Apr 9, 2020

It's brilliant to see that churches great and small have taken to digital so well and so creatively.

I put out a call on Facebook the other day for fellow Methodists to let me know their service times and look what came in - lots of examples of great worship for you to join in and give praise to God this Easter.

Here's just a taste!

As a Methodist Minister myself, I am so proud of this selection!!!!

It was interesting and helped me think about what we need to be doing. There were lots of ideas about new things we could do.
