Worship at Home Resources

Live-streamed Services

Live-streamed services are available from various Methodist Churches around the country including Wesley’s Chapel, London, Swan Bank, Burslem and Methodist Central Hall, Westminster. Please see the Calendar page for listings and times. Some churches also provide live prayers at other times during the week.

Live-streamed services are usually available to be viewed afterwards. As recording starts some minutes in advance of worship it is usually necessary to fast-forward to find the start of the service.

Worship at Home Sheet for 27 September

The Methodist Church have produced a short act of worship to enable you to worship at home. There are live links in the PDF document to short performances on YouTube. There is also a large print version of the service.

Church Project extended until 2021

As the health crisis has seen the cancellation of many of our events, not least the flagship Quinton Art Festival that was due to take place in May, it has been decided to extend the current Annual Church Project fund-raising period by an extra year until autumn 2021.

In 2019 two organisations were selected to benefit from our activities: Helping Hands of Birmingham, who bring care to the homeless on the streets of Brimingham and MotherShip, a community arts company that seeks to connect communities through culture and creativity.

New Beginning

Jesus said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.”

Circuit Minister Rev Nutan Suray considers the words of John 21 : 1‑14 in a reflection which can be found on the Messages, Reflections & Prayers page.

Reflections, messages and prayers for previous Sundays can also be accessed via the page.

Food banks: how you can help

In these difficult times our local food banks are finding that their services are in more demand than ever. At the same time our Church is closed, and with it our usual method of making donations of groceries and toiletries via the vestibule box.

Being on the borders of Halesowen, Oldbury and Birmingham there are two food banks serving our catchment area: Oldbury & Quinton Food Bank and Black Country Food Bank. Although it is possible to physically donate items to the food banks they also have a means of receiving monetary donations via their websites.

Find out more about how you can help Quinton & Oldbury Food Bank.

Please note: If you are planning to make a donation of food items please check with the food bank regarding opening times and and their arrangements for physical distancing when receiving donated items.

The coronavirus crisis has seen a large shift to online life from shopping to maintaining social contact with friends. Information for getting started on Facebook plus general advice and resources for spotting and avoiding bogus emails and scams and staying safe online can be found on Help with Online Life page.
