A letter from Bronwyn Nott – 20/04/20 – Crediton Live Services
Sunday services at 10.30am and 6.30pm. For details, see Circuit Preaching Plan
Crediton Methodist Church aspires to be a dynamic worshipping Christian family seeking to play our part in the worldwide mission of God by nurturing, encouraging and supporting one another. We are working towards this aim, but live with the reality that ours is a congregation of varied ages with different needs: some appreciate traditional music and worship styles, and others would like a more modern approach. We now have a Youth Worker. Our three discipleship groups continue to provide opportunities for personal growth and support.
After many years of developing our vision for this church, the refurbishment project was completed in September 2019 and the church re-opened on Saturday 14th Sep. The interior has been transformed into a bright, flexible and welcoming space, suitable for both worship and community activities. A ramp has been added at the front to enable wheelchair access.
Bronwyn Nott has written a short report on the opening weekend’s events.
“What an amazing weekend– one that will be remembered for a long time in Crediton Methodist Church’s history.
The refurbished premises were opened by The Mayor, Councillor Frank Letch and Mrs Anne Jerman opened the ramp for visitors with mobility problems.
During the 6 hours the premises were open, approximately 400 people visited to look at the wonderful new premises which have been designed so as to provide flexible worship space and opportunity for the community to take part in activities.
The Re-dedication service was led by Rev Ann Varker with the preacher Rev Steve Wild, who gave a very light-hearted and amusing sermon but at the same time a very challenging and inspiring one.
On Sunday evening the Circuit Service was well attended by representatives from most of the 25 churches in the Circuit when the preacher was Rev Steve Santry. The sermon was again challenging in that Rev Santry reminded us that the church was not bricks and mortar, even though they have been so expertly refurbished, but the church is people and members of Crediton Methodist Church have a task to continue showing God’s love in Crediton, which was commenced some 127 years ago.”
