This Week's Services

Please note as services resume at Temple, in line with Methodist Church and Government guidance during the coronavirus outbreak, we are continuing a number of preventative practices so that you can attend safely. These include Track and Trace (via attendance list or QR code), access to hand sanitiser, social distancing and wearing of face coverings.

If you are unable to attend or are interested in the alternatives available, you may wish to check out the weekly recorded service for the Circuit, found here, which premiers each Sunday at 9.30am when there is also opportunity to use the 'chat area' available for the duration of the service. There is also a Zoom Meeting at 6.30pm see details below in section from Reverend Chris Brown.

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.

Please can you let as many people know about these internet pages as possible.
