At the outbreak of the Coronavirus the Government were keen to stress the importance of keeping well both physically and mentally. In this 15 minute exercise Revd Tim Moore leads us through a mindfulness practice with some help and guidance on how to stay emotionally well. Tim is a presbyter in Huddersfield and teaches mindfulness as a part of his pioneer work.

  • In this episode, Tim Moore talks to us about contemplative and Centering prayer. He continues to help us with our wellbeing and gives guidance on the power of gratitude.
  • In our third episode, Tim looks at mindfulness and psychological distancing.

Bereavement Bags

Bereavement BagsSusan Wishart, one of our District Safeguarding Officers, writes, "Our colleagues in the North West had the idea for Bereavement Bags, small brown carriers containing tiny wooden crosses, a candle to light, a packet of Forget-Me-Not seeds, tea bags and a selection of printed prayers and readings for three situations; one for people who have been unable to go to a funeral, one for someone whose loved one has died and one for someone who is dying. They are a gesture of support and care from the Methodist Church for people in these very difficult times when the normal grieving process, which includes funerals and getting together with family and friends, has not been possible. For a short time there is no cost and they can be ordered through the Superintendent Ministers."

Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World

Acting in God's LoveOur Deputy Chair, Revd Dr Barbara Glasson, has been involved in putting together a new booklet, ‘Acting in God’s Love: Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World’.
