Everyone who is currently leading others in worship or preaching, or is interested in exploring these areas in various ways, should take part in the Scotland and Shetland Regional conference on the evening of Friday 21 May and the morning of Saturday 22 May. You can register for “Opening Doors: for recovery, reorientation and renewal” at this link.

More about Leading Worship and Preaching in the Scotland and Shetland Methodist Districts in this introduction.

“Prayer of the week” is a initiative by the RMC Leadership team that came about through a conversation about encouraging the church to pray, particularly during this time of pandemic. The aim is to help people in their prayer/faith life, using material produced by some of the RMC members on a weekly basis and distributed by email or regular mail to all at RMC. Anyone who wishes to offer a prayer on a regular or occasional basis is invited to contact the coordinator, David Salthouse.

We invited you to visit https://forthvalleycircuit.org.uk/news-and-events/ on Easter Sunday morning, to find a link to a fun celebration of the Easter story – suitable for small and big kids alike. This is where the link led – this lovely Sea Shanty, written for her local primary school by Rev Diana Hall, the rector of St Anne’s, Dunbar, a Scottish Episcopal and Methodist Church partnership.

This year’s Methodist Women in Britain Easter Offering Service Into all the world is now available for you to watch via YouTube.

The video lasts just 38 minutes and has the text of the service on screen, and recordings of hymns and songs to join in with. It’s ideal for individuals to watch at home, but why not arrange a time for you and your friends to watch it at home ‘together-apart’, and have an online/Zoom chat afterwards.

If, having watched the video, you would like to make a gift to the World Mission Fund, talk to Dave Ward, or give directly via the Just Giving page, referencing your donation with “EO Service 2021”.

Information, with accompanying links, on the MWiB website.
