Fragile Earth

With life and church services being altered due to the coronavirus situation, we have put this front page ahead of our usual home page which can be found here.

This page will enable you to keep in touch with the Churches and Circuit at this time.


Recorded Service

Each week we provide a service which is made up of contributions from a number of people within the Circuit. This week Rev Richard Wilde reminds us of our need to be good stewards of the earth and her resources.
You can find the service here, and can download a copy of the service sheet here.

We make the service available each Sunday via our own Facebook page and on

If you watch our services regularly through YouTube, do consider subscribing to the channel — this is free to do.

You can also access the services via our Services — Corona Virus page here where you can find a copy of the service sheet for the latest service.


Pastoral Letter

Each week the Circuit produces a pastoral letter from the Circuit Ministers and the Circuit Stewards — the one for this week can be found here
You can read previous pastoral letters on our 'Publications' page (all are titled C19 -... you may have to scroll through several pages to find the one you want).

Revd Dr Iain Ballard

Welcome Service — Rev Dr Iain Ballard

It probably seems odd to hold a welcome service for Rev Dr Iain Ballard (our Superintendent) when he has been in post for over a year. However, we shall be holding one on Sunday 7th November 2021 at 4 pm at Kenilworth Methodist Church. The preacher will be Rev Ian Howarth, Chair of District.
The are plenty of places available, so booking will not be required. More details are available here



Children's Church Online:

We have some new videos in this category: for example, check out Rev Jemima's take on the Beatitudes, or the Paper Poppies. And in these dark times, maybe the Prayer Light in Darkness

Rev Jemima has started a Children's Church online — link here for the YouTube channel.

Or you can watch them via the website — on our Children's Church page


The Young Christian Climate Network (YCCN) — Pilgrimage

YCCN has begun a relay pilgrimage from the G7 summit in St Ives to Glasgow, where world leaders will meet in November for important climate negotiations at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). — see our article for more information
