Announcing the launch of "Frodsham & District Open Hands" (a project of Frodsham Open Hands Limited, of which Rev'd.

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.

Letter to the Church in China: From The Rev'd. Dr. Barbara Glasson, President of the Methodist Conference 2019-20
Dear Wu Wei, Xu Xiaohong, Kan Baoping and all our brothers and sisters at CCC/TSPM,
I am writing on behalf of the Methodist Church in Britain to share our love and prayers for the people of China as you manage the health crisis associated with the Coronavirus outbreak in Hubei province. We are aware that many people are suffering and anxious and we are very concerned to hear of the rising number of deaths associated with the outbreak. We are particularly mindful of those families who have lost loved ones in recent days.
We thank God for all those who are heading medical research into the disease. At such times we realise that we are dependent on expertise, advice and cooperation from people across the world. We trust that the ongoing work of the Chinese health services, the World Health Organisation and other medical experts will soon limit the disease and succeed in finding the causes and cure.
We are glad that the Church in China is strong both in numbers and faith. We know that you will be working alongside communities to help people be calm and to support those in need. Although we are many miles away geographically, we feel close to you in prayer. Please be assured of our concern for you all. and our shared faith in the love of Jesus who shows us his strength in our human vulnerability.
We are also mindful of the concerns of the Chinese diaspora community across the world, particularly in the UK, and will be offering our support for them as best we can.
The Rev'd. Dr. Barbara Glasson
President of The Methodist Conference 2019-20
