Christmas celebrations

We'd like to thank all those who in anyway contributed to our services, the decoration of the church and our outreach over the Christmas period. People work tirelessly and we are thankful for it.

Regional Day of Prayer 6th January

A letter from the Chairman of the District:
Following on from our ongoing regional conversations, the Chairs of the five districts (Bristol, the Channel Isles, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, Plymouth & Exeter and Southampton) have agreed a Regional Day of Prayer on Epiphany, 6th January 2022.

The hope is that all those who are part of the life of the Methodist Church in the Region will put aside some time during the day to pray alone or with others.

As our nation – along with the rest of the world – continues to wrestle with the effects and uncertainties caused by Covid19, please will you join us in setting aside some time to pray for all those who:

  • have been bereaved by the virus
  • are suffering lasting effects from the virus (long Covid)
  • are working in the health and other services at a time of demand and uncertainty
  • have lost their jobs or businesses because of the restrictions
  • are anxious about the future
  • are elected to serve this and other nations at this time
  • are working hard to find new treatments to tackle Covid 19
  • do not have access to vaccines – particularly remembering our global partners
  • lead our churches as we seek to discern our mission
  • have had their faith challenged and are uncertain about much

And so much more!

Please will you also use the Day of Prayer to ask what you/we are being called to do and be as God's Church is reshaped in these uncertain days? What might you do to pray for our world and everyone in it?

Wimborne Folk Festival – Date for your diary

I expect you have your 2022 diary now and so here is a date to keep free in it!

Wimborne Folk Festival will return in 2022 after missing 2 years due to Covid. It will be held on the weekend of 10 – 12 June and as usual we at Wimborne Methodist Church are intending to use the weekend as an outreach to those attending and a fund raiser for local charities. We will serve refreshments over the weekend and have our usual stalls – Bric-a-Brac, Books and Cakes.
