In light of the current guidelines issued by the government and by The Methodist Church regarding the impact of Covid-19 we have taken the decision not to gather in REfUSE on a Sunday evening until further notice. We believe that this decision is the best way in which we can fulfil the command to 'Love God and love our neighbour', by being part of the global move to limit the spread of the virus and protect the most vulnerable in our communities. Situations like the one we are facing bring home the importance of community and the need 'love one another' in practical ways. If there is anyone who needs support or help please get in touch.
If you would like to know more about being a Christian and the hope that we have in Jesus, or be part of an online gathering for worship, please get in touch using one of the methods on our contact page.
During September and October we thought about what it is to be Church
1. A people for His name - God has always called people to be in a community centred on himself
2. A Diverse people - We explored how the early church struggled with welcoming those who were different and the challenge for the modern church to welcome diversity.
3 A people of unity - The church as a body with each member having different gifts all working together to build up the whole.
4. A worshipping people - We worship as seek to follow God faithfully day by day, drawing together each Sunday to encourage one another.
5. A sacramental people - We explored the meaning of baptism and the Lords Supper, symbols of repentance and entry into his people and a remembering of his sacrificial death in through the sharing of bread and wine.
