The Prayer group meet this Tuesday evening and subsequent Tuesdays thereafter at 7pm to 8 pm in the Church Sanctuary – we encourage you to come along, its very casual and you can stay as long as you wish, . bring warm clothing – wearing of masks and social distancing will be observed


If you would like to join the Praise Group,  we would encourage you to come along, the format of praise is slightly different from previous times, its very informal and the idea going forward is to sing a chosen hymn along with the congregation during morning worship - if you are interested please remain after the service.


Next Sunday our service will be taken by Rev Daphne Twinem

During this time we will be observing Government guidelines on social distancing.  It therefore is in your best interest and personal safety that when entering the church premises please record your name and contact telephone number on sheet provided. (details will be retained for 14 days.)


Please consider Telephone ministry open to all - just give a friendly telephone call to those you know who are living on their own.   This role provides short-term telephone support to individuals who are at risk of loneliness as a consequence of self-isolation. 

  

Financial Guidance

HOLYWOOD METHODIST CHURCH

Coronavirus Outbreak (COVID-19)

Although, sadly, public worship is suspended you will be aware, of course, that the Church continues to rely very substantially on the financial support of its members.

 

However difficult a time this is for all of us I thought you would welcome some guidance as to how you could help. I hope the following suggestions will enable you to continue to subscribe as generously and regularly as in the past.

 

Option A  If you are a regular subscriber by freewill envelope you may send it by cheque made payable to:-  

Holywood Methodist Church (not cash) to:–

Holywood Methodist Church

c/o Mr Girvan Clarke (Treasurer) 

25 Ardmore Heights

Holywood

BT18 0PY

Always ensuring that you add your Free-will Offering envelope number

 

- Rather than do it weekly a monthly cheque would be very acceptable.

Option B would be to subscribe by direct debit.

#

[For either Options A or B the Treasurer ( would advise you.]

 

Thank you for your continuing support at this very difficult time.


 

LET US GO FORTH IN FAITH KNOW THAT JESUS IS LORD
