Welcome to Church Road Methodist
Stacks Image 48

Following a request from the Directors of Public Health in Lancashire to all faith communities to suspend communal worship to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 and protect the NHS, Worship Services across the Circuit are suspended for the rest of the month. This has been a difficult decision to make balancing personal, local and national feelings and concerns but in the end we believe it is what we should do as part of our contribution to help the Government get control of the virus and stop its spread.

We will continue to monitor the situation across the circuit and we will review this decision at the end of the month.
For the remainder of the month there will be a live streamed service from one of the Circuit churches. This week, 17th January, it will be led by Rev Stuart Wild from Kirkham Methodist Church at 10.30 a.m. To access the service go to https://www.facebook.com/kirkhammethodist/
Sundays at 11.30 a.m. There is an invitation to join with others from around the Circuit in fellowship by Zoom. This will be hosted by Deacon Kim To join https://zoom.us/j/98170029407?pwd=L0xONGplak1JNVJuRTZXQmhINTZZUT09
We continue to highlight opportunities for worship with a focus on those that are easily available, knowing people with the internet have access to a huge amount of material, far more than we can list so we have listed some of those with a local connection. Please note this offer changes and updates more regularly than we can keep up with so please note it was accurate when compiled but it may change so please check the programme schedules on the day.
