Update 05/03/21 – Ashley Methodist Church are very happy to say that the Church will re-open for worship and we will be holding in-person services once again from Easter Sunday (4th April). For April and May we will be meeting on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at 10.30am. There will continue to be an online offering which can be viewed via the hompage (below) or our Circuit YouTube Channel (link below)
08/01/2021 – Covid Update – The churches in the Market Drayton Methodist Circuit, including Ashley Methodist Church have made the decision to close for communal worship during this current lockdown period. We will be monitoring the situation, and will re-open as soon as it feels appropriate to do so.
Services will last approximately 45 minutes. Our screens will be pushed back and our chairs orgised into household groups. We have a reduced capacity but anticipate being able to welcome our usual numbers of congregation due to using the whole building for seating. Masks must be worn for the duration of the service, unless you are exempt and unfortunately we are not able to sing together as a congregation yet. For the immediate future, Junior Church provision will not be possible, although children are welcome to attend with their parents. We do not require an advanced booking for services (with the exception of Easter Sunday). Click here to book for Easter Sunday.
As a circuit, we are well-prepared to welcome back our congregations to worship. MDMC is open for Sunday services at 10.30am weekly. Booking is required via www.mdmc.org.uk/calendar
This also means that community groups who may want to use the church to meet will be able to discuss with us the possibility of using the church building in line with government advice specific to your group.
If you do not feel comfortable in returning to church, please don’t worry, we will be continuing to live-stream an act of worship every Sunday morning at 10.30am which you can watch below, on our YouTube channel or via our Facebook page.
Please contact us either on our contacts page or by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01630 655957 (leave a message and we will get back to you) if you feel that we might be able to help or support you in any way.
