Palm Sunday Online Services

Wesley’s Chapel, London – 11am

A service will be streamed live from Wesley’s Chapel in London on Sunday at 11am via their Wesley’s Chapel & Leysian Mission YouTube channel. This service is possible because the Minister lives on the premises. You will also find a series of Morning Prayers, Communion, Lunchtime and previous Sunday Services on the channel.

Should you find that watching a live stream causes your computer or device to stop or stutter you may consider viewing the service at another time when traffic to and from the server is likely to be lighter.

A Reflection by Rev Ajay Singh

Our minister Rev Ajay Singh has prepared a short reflection and prayer for this difficult time. You can read Ajay’s reflection and prayer here.

Pastoral Care Arrangements

Due to the current health emergency all pastoral visits have been suspended and are being replaced by regular telephone contact. This contact will be at least once a week for the isolated, vulnerable and less self-sufficient, and fortnightly for others. Fellowship groups have also been initiated to enable members of our congregation to feel less isolated.

40th Birmingham Girls’ Brigade is offering practical support to isolated and vulnerable members of our congregation by regular phone contact and by fetching shopping, walking dogs, etc. However, please note that shopping services, etc., can currently be performed only for those living within the B62 and B63 postcodes and conforming with prevailing Government guidelines which, as the emergency evolves, are changing frequently. The coverage area may expand – please monitor this page for developments.

To access Pastoral Services please contact the Pastoral Care Coordinator – manual input: pastoral@quintonmethodist.co.uk

Art & Craft Festival Cancelled

This year’s Art & Craft Festival has been cancelled due to the current coronavirus health emergency. The secretary will be in touch with those who have already returned application forms.

Dolly Parton Story concert postponed

The associated Dolly Parton concert has been postponed. We hope to re-arrange it later in the year. Refunds will be available to those who have already bought tickets. Please contact the Concert Secretary – manual input: ccsecretary@quintonmethodist.co.uk – to arrange your refund.

Suspension of all activities

It is with deep sadness that, following recent Government statements and in accordance with Methodist Church national guidelines issued on 17 March 2020, a decision has been made to suspend all Quinton Methodist Church worship and social activities until further notice. The suspension includes all Church-based activities and also applies to organisations and those who hire facilities within our Church premises.

Following the Government announcement of 23 March 2020, and in addition to the suspension of regular Sunday Services already announced, baptisms and weddings are not permitted until further notice. Whilst funerals may take place the Church advise that the number of people attending should be limited as per the Government's advice. If you have any questions regarding funerals, or baptisms or weddings that now must be postponed, please contact the Minister Rev Ajay Singh - manual input: ajay.singh@methodist.org.uk
