During this time, as our Church buildings are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are all learning to adapt and adjust so that we can function as a society and as a Church.

We are Church even when we can not attend Church, and a way of being Church is to communicate, share and worship in different and perhaps new forms.

The Northampton District Circuits are providing a wealth of prayer and reflection as well as family activities. Lots of Circuits now have their own you tube channels and facebook pages.

The district hosts a private Facebook group about creativity and faith. The group is called Create! and exists to help people create new Christian communities and to encourage existing Christian communities to be creative. If you would like to join please find us below and answer the questions you'll be asked, also agreeing to the rules. Or you could email jill.marsh@methodist.org.uk
