This Week's Service
Please note as per Methodist Church recommendation all worship services in Temple are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance during the coronavirus outbreak.
However, there is a weekly recorded service for the Circuit, led by Reverend Deborah Kirk or Reverend Tony Cox found here.
You can also catch up on services on our Previous Services & Sermons page or you can join with other home worshippers or use the Methodist Church resources on our Home Worship page. Please also use our Prayer Page.
Sunday 12th July
I have been thinking about how we can feel more connected to one another on a Sunday morning, I would like to invite any who wish to tune in to an online time on worship which is recorded ready for Sunday morning.
The preacher this week is Rev Tony Cox
It can be found on the link here and will 'go live' on Sunday at 9.30am. (Please note the earlier time!). There is also a Zoom Meeting at 10.30am (see details below in section from Chris).
At 9.30 for the duration of the service only, there will be a 'chat' area which viewers can if they wish, register to use with one click, and then you are able to make short written comments (200 characters) to greet others you know, respond to the service, etc. Some choose not to do this, but simply share in the service without comment, and that is completely your choice. This chat opportunity finishes 10 minutes after the service, and although you can revisit the service at a later time for a few days, the chat area will not be visible or an option.
If you choose to log onto the online service, I hope you can feel connected together as a worshipping community.

Rev Chris Brown, Circuit Superintendent Minister - Circuit News
Rev Chris Brown has set up a facebook page 'TD&SS Methodist Circuit' for our Circuit during this time of suspension.
It is hoped that this will be a helpful way to keep in touch and to also share the latest information.
Chris will also be working on his blog http://www.revbrown.co.uk/
Please can you let as many people know about these internet pages as possible.
