05/01/2021 – Circuit Office Update regarding Covid-19
The Government gave further guidance on 4th January regarding the current national lockdown. Whilst there is provision for churches to remain open during this time it is on the proviso of a full risk assessment and adhering to strict rules to ensure that we are covid secure. In consultation with the Circuit Leadership Team we are mindful of the increased risk to health due to the new strain of the virus. Our duty of care to the congregations alongside preachers, organists, stewards etc. means that the vast majority of our churches have chosen to close their buildings for the time being. Rest assured though that the church is not closed and we will continue to offer our weekly resources sheet that lists all our online services, the Vine at Home, and a reflective letter.
Please stay safe.
Please see Current Church Closures and Services throughout the Circuit for a full list of the current status of our churches within the circuit.

“The calling of the Exeter Coast and Country Methodist Circuit is to respond to God’s love in Jesus by sharing our lives through Christian discipleship in worship, mission and service.”
Lord, we thank you for
the transformation of a shrivelled seed
into food or flower.
Your movement of night to day
and your eternal love seen in Jesus.
be transformed for fruitfulness,
become light for others
and know that your love is broader,
higher, wider and deeper
than we will ever comprehend. Amen
