The Cathedral from afar 

Welcome to the website of the
Ely and Newmarket Methodist Circuit
and its churches.

We want to tell you about the Methodist Churches which are in Ely, Newmarket and surrounding towns and villages and to offer you a warm welcome at any of these places of worship.

We are part of the East Anglia District of
The Methodist Church of Great Britain.

The main site for methodism is methodist.org.uk.

A message from Colin Watkins, Superintendent Minister:

It is with sadness that worship services in Methodist Churches are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance on Covid-19. And the Church buildings will no longer be accessible for private prayer.  March 2020

This action is not only in line with government guidelines but also with decisions taken by the Church Of England and Baptist Union.  The full guidance can be found here-  https://www.methodist.org.uk/coronavirus/

There are suggestions on the website of resources for alternative forms of worship, including a worship at home sheet. 

Wesley Chapel, London, will live-stream services each week

Also Swan Bank, Burslem, is livestreaming services

Even though we cannot come to church we now need to be church more than ever. Each of our congregations has a way of watching over one another, and these systems are now more important than ever. Those who are socially distancing themselves need our care and contact, by telephone or other electronic means, and I urge each of us to step up our efforts to remain in contact with one another by any safe means possible.

This has the potential to be a testing time for us all but we must never forget that God is with us and that at the heart of the Christian Gospel is a message of hope, a commodity that the world could do with more of right now.

May God bless you all.

Reverend Colin Watkins

Superintendent Minister
