Spiritually, socially, and physically, the church is at the heart of our community and a welcome space and community hub. One of our very successful ventures, which continues three times a week, is to provide a 'Welcome Space' for many people in the town.
Sited in a central position in Richmond, the Methodist Church has become the home for many activities both Church sponsored and from the community. Its many varied rooms make it ideal for many events and activities.
Monthly at Richmond on the first Sunday at 6.30pm and are held in church.
Jesus said: 'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.' Matthew 11:28
The service is a quiet, shorter one than the usual, with a guest speaker. There is a time of ministry and prayer when we bring our concerns to God on behalf of other people, as well as ourselves. There is no compulsion to receive the laying on of hands, mention names during the prayer time or to pray out loud.
Anyone who would like to share concerns or requires further prayer can do so after the service, when members of the healing team are on hand. Everything shared is kept completely confidential.
Please join us for any of the services.
"God enfold you; Christ uphold you,
Spirit to keep you in heaven's sight;
so may God grace you, heal and embrace you,
lead you through darkness into the light"
John L. Bell (b. 1949) Singing the Faith 648
