Dane and Trent Circuit have appointed Julia Tomes to co-ordinate worship and other resources to support children and young people at home, whilst they are unable to join in traditional style church activities and worship.  She will be assisted by Tony Bartley.

Julia is looking into producing a children's YouTube channel and material to be sent to children, supporting activities to do at home instead of attending Sunday school etc.  Please do get in touch with her if she can help you.

If you know someone who cannot access the Circuit's Sunday services on-line, perhaps they would be willing to access a sound-only version of the same service, provided by  The telephone number is 01782 939017The cost is that of a local call. 

There are two options people can select from.  Option 1 will tell you which hymns and readings are used in this week's on-line service.  Option 2 allows you to listen to the service itself.

People who have been trialling it have said they have found it helpful and it has given some a sense of peace.

If more than one person at the same place wishes to hear at the same time, it may be possible to put the phone on a loudspeaker setting to share the service.

Welcome to Dane and Trent Methodist Circuit.
We're pleased to have started gathering again for worship.

Sunday services are a bit different as we follow Government guidelines in the church buildings now open, to make them Covid-19 safe. e.g. it is essential to wear a mask and use hand-sanitiser.

You are invited to worship in any church building now open.  Although we can't exercise our lungs in singing yet, we can praise God with our hearts and our spoken voices!

For those who don't yet feel able to attend, we are still worshipping in various other ways, including through our weekly on-line Circuit service.

We will keep you updated about the church buildings which are not yet open, as their news comes in.  It takes a great deal of time and energy to make all the necessary preparations so please be patient.

"Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength" (Isaiah 40:31)
