A message from Rev. David Perkins
This week I have written a pastoral letter here to keep you up to date on what’s happened, is happening and what is anticipated. I have tried to be comprehensive but apologies if I have missed anything out.
[Hard copies will be distributed to everyone who hasn’t got computer access.]
Also in the notices is a link to an open letter to the Methodist people. (click here)
This is an illustration of what has been said elsewhere about how we make a new normal. The letter is not an official circular from Methodist House, but is a series of thoughts and suggestions from a number of Methodist people, lay and ordained, to help the Methodist people consider what kind of church we might be when we have time to reflect on what has happened and what kind of Methodist Church emerges from it.

Rev. Rachael Wilson has been producing a personal reflection most weeks and sending it out to the churches for which she is currently responsible.
Rachael, with the support of the Circuit Leadership team, is now offering her reflections to all the circuit churches or to an even wider audience.
