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.


Easter 2021 — Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

May the richest blessings of this Easter Season find a home in your heart and give you the joy of the resurrection today and always.

If you wish to catch up on any of our Lent offerings for this year, you can find them here


Recorded Service — Access Problems

We are aware that some people have struggled to access the Circuit Service in the normal way, by clicking on the link below. Therefore we have linked to the service, through our 'Services — Corona Virus' Page instead. You will be able to access the video by clicking here

Each week we provide a service which is an amalgam of contributions from a number of people within the Circuit.
The preacher for our service this week is Malcolm Aldridge, who speaks to us about care for our world.
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.

You can also access them 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 a couple of pages).


Family Worship Time

This is an exciting venture with Rev. Jemima Strain, Michael Sharman (Kenilworth and Dale Street's Children and Families Missioner) and Graeme Russell (Church and Community Missioner for Warwick, Whitnash and Wellesbourne) who have teamed up to offer a new and exciting style of online worship for young families.

The new "Family Worship Time" premiers on the second and fourth Sunday of each month at 9.15am on YouTube and lasts approximately 20 minutes. This is the link to the playlist for Family Worship Time

Join in as they have fun exploring God's love for us through Bible stories, action songs and interactive prayers. The services are full of colour and action, with laughter and fun mixed with the central message that God is for all and that Jesus welcomes and celebrates children's praise.

Families in the Circuit may also want to join "Family Social Time" which is a fortnightly Zoom meeting which supplements these YouTube worship videos — please email us to request login details (swc.michaelsharman@gmail.com).



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
