March News

We have heard with sadness that Rod King died during the night of Monday, 1st March.  We thank God for his life and remember Ian, Christine, Stephen, and their families in our prayers.  There is a personal tribute to Rod in our March newsletter.  If you would like to send a card of condolence to the family, the stewards have an address for Stephen which we can give to you.

We offer congratulations to our minister, 
Rev’d Doreen Koffie-Williams who has progressed successfully through District Probationers’ Committee and can now prepare for ordination later this year.  We offer our support and prayers as she continues in ministry with us at Earlsdon.

Morning Prayer:  We are holding a short time of quiet prayerful reflection each Wednesday morning during Lent at 8.30am for 15 minutes.  The ‘zoom log in’ is the same as for Sunday worship.  We are looking for volunteers to lead / facilitate. Please do get in touch if you can offer to help. Each week is different, and it can be as simple or creative as you wish. Next week, Wednesday 10th, Lois will host. Do drop in – PJs are quite acceptable!

Lent Fellowship Study Groups by Zoom:  Fortnightly meetings continue on Mondays, 7.30 – 9.00 pm., 8th March & 22nd March.  The material is based on ‘A Methodist Way of Life’. Further information, with the Zoom link, is available to logged in Members HERE. You are very welcome to join whether or not you have attended groups before.

CTEC Fellowship in Lent: Instead of Lent lunches on Tuesdays, there will be short zoom services at each of the five churches in turn on Tuesday evenings at 7pm. This coming week, March 9th, worship will be hosted by All Soul’s Church.  Further information regarding the Zoom link, later weeks, and ways to donate to Christian Aid and Cafod are available to logged in Members HERE.

CTEC Prayer Breakfast:  Saturday March 6th.  Zoom link details
are in the Newsletter available below.

Methodist Women in Britain have four notices which are available to logged in Members.

Newsletter Anniversary: Next week’s edition will be Number 52 -  bringing us round a full year since the start of EMC news by email. I wonder how that feels for you?  For me it seems significant and it would be good to acknowledge both the difficult year that has passed and the ways we have been able to stay connected.

We would like to gather some of your thoughts and perhaps produce a special ‘Anniversary Edition’ of the Newsletter later in March. Rev’d Doreen and I have put our joint heads together to think of some ideas. You might have some suggestions too.

We invite you to think about: What the newsletter has meant to you in the lockdown; what have you enjoyed most and why? What have been the highs and lows of the year, and where is God in all of this?

We would love to have your input.  Maybe a few lines written down – or maybe a phone conversation to capture your thoughts. Please do get in touch. Let’s see what we can come up with between us…..

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

Currently we are not offering tea, coffee and biscuits after the service due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, but it is hoped we can re start soon.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilet off the back of church.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10.30am, but when the music is led by our Worship Band, we have a few hymns &/or songs before the service starts. There is then a warm welcome from one of our Stewards. Church news & extra notices may also be given at this time. Our services are typically an hour long, with a mixture of hymns, prayers, bible readings and a sermon. One of our leaders will give the sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We finish with a final worship song before a final prayer is said. (Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.)

Getting Connected


Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, morning, afternoons and evenings.


Our groups include:-

  • Tuesday Prayer Lunch
  • Wednesday Fellowship
  • Wednesday Word
  • Dayspring Steel Band
  • Wellspring Café
  • Prayer Shawl Ministry
Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
  We hope that whoever you are, you will feel at home at our church.

Best Wishes
