As we cannot meet together face-to-face at present, during the online worship on Easter Sunday there will be an opportunity for the Frodsham Methodist Church Family to greet each other.
If you want to be part of this, please send a photograph or video of you and your family wishing the Church Family a Happy Easter by Thursday 9th April to:
This could be recorded on a professional camera but a phone is also fine. Be as creative as you want. Your message could be delivered orally, in writing, or anything else you can think of! But do try to keep the message short so the service does not overrun (too much!).
Do note that the service will be broadcast on YouTube so everyone in the photograph or video should be comfortable with their image being included in the service. And we will try our best to include all submissions received, as long as the format is compatible.
Please help to spread the word!
The Methodist Church in Britain publises a quarterly magazine, The Connexion. Issue 18 (Spring 2020) is available now and you can read the magazine online here. It is well worth a read!
Along with this magazine this month is a prayer journal, also available online here. This is published by Thy Kingdom Come, which is a worldwide prayer movement.
They have prayer journals that can be printed off / read / used for free available here.
These might be of help to those who are searching at this difficult time.

We are hoping to put up our Easter cross outside Church as a symbol of hope for the community and those passing by.
But we will need lots of flowers to decorate it. The Church Stewards planning to put the bare cross up on Good Friday and will leave a bucket of water by it, so that people out on their permitted walk on Friday evening or Saturday you can leave flowers there. Please try not to touch the cross or the bucket itself so that we can keep each other safe. The Church Stewards will then put the flowers on the cross on Easter Sunday morning. Thank you.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, all public worship and activities are suspended.

In accordance with the advice from government, we must, with great sadness, suspend all public / collective acts of worship and all meetings and activities which involve meeting in groups either at chapel or elsewhere. This is effective immediately meaning that there will be no worship at Frodsham Methodist Church from this Sunday.
Full and ongoing information with regard to the position of the Methodist Church may be found at:
This is a sad day. Our story tells us that sad, dark days should also be days of anticipation and expectant hope. Over the coming days, we have the opportunity to innovate new ways of being together and of worshipping. Some of these ideas will involve technology for which some will be more enthusiastic than others. We must be mindful of those who cannot access such resources.
