The church building is currently closed due to the Covid-19 outbreak and is expected to remain closed for some time despite the relaxation of the lock-down rules for places of worship. We will continue to follow the guidance of the wider Methodist Church and ensure that we do everything we can to protect our members and visitors and only re-open once it is safe for us to do so.
Update 28 June: We will be meeting in the next couple of weeks to discuss plans going forward following the government announcement that places of worship can re-open for services from 4th July. This does not necessarily mean that we will be re-opening our building for worship in the immediate future, the Methodist guidance is not to rush to re-open our buildings.
Opening for funerals will also be part of the discussion, however if you have an immediate need please do get in touch and our minister will get back to you to discuss options.
There are a number of resources available to help you worship from home, including on-line services, zoom prayer meetings, phone lines and printed worship sheets. If you know somebody in the Huntington area who does not have access to the internet but would like to receive a printed worship sheet or recordings of our live stream services on DVD please let us know and we can make arrangements for them to be delivered.
