Temple Methodist Church Taunton
A church that welcomes all, celebrates God’s love, offers opportunities to explore the Christian faith, seeks to serve in the world and to challenge injustice.
Please take a few moments to come in and look around our website. Its purpose is to welcome you all, whether local to Taunton, visitors or newcomers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to invite you to join us in our worship and other activities.
We seek to be available to the people of the town and surrounding area, to offer God's love in worship and through pastoral care and support.
Please note as per Methodist Church recommendation some worship services and group meetings in Temple have been suspended or are restricted, operating in line with Government guidance during the coronavirus outbreak.
Advent ... a time to prepare
Making an Advent Retreat at Home
Each year we try to make time to prepare our hearts for the miracle of Emmanuel - Christ with us. This year, in particular, when lives and hearts are perhaps more focussed on the ‘real’ message of Christmas, it feels all the more important to prepare well. One way we can do this is to make an ‘Advent retreat’ for ourselves, which we can do at home, over the weeks preceding Christmas.
You can use this booklet however you wish, but it is planned to be used from the first Sunday of Advent, finishing on Christmas Eve.
