Minister's Letter

In his Advent and Christmas message, Paul reflects on the unsettled world we live in and reminds us that, as his followers, we each have a part to play, where we are able, in the transformation of this all-too-often-troubling world of ours.

From the joint chairs of the London District

Christmas message

Dear Friends,

The story of Christ’s birth powerfully engages our imaginations. Wise men make a long journey by the leading of a star. Shepherds praise God. Angels sing; and the glory of the Lord shines around. In a manger, and in great humility, lies the Christ child, born of Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We are reminded, then as now, that God enters into history to bring new life and hope, for it is easy to lose heart when we look upon our world. It seems that over the last year our society has become more and more cynical and hope for the future is dwindling.

So begins the Christmas Message from the joint Chairs of the London District, Revd Nigel Cowgill and Revd Dr Jongikaya Zihle. To read the whole message go to the website of the London District of the Methodist Church.

Gastronomic Food Weekend

Forget the winter blues, come along to Martin Way Methodist Church for their Gastronomic Food Weekend of the 19th and 20th January 2019. There will be the usual fantastic Big Brunch on the Saturday but also on the Sunday you can spoil yourself with a gourmet French Themed lunch served after the service. There will be no charge for the lunch but we ask for donations towards the cost of the coffee lounge floor. Please put your name on the sign-up sheet on the notice board if you would like to have lunch.

Christian Care

Christian CARE is a charity working in the London Borough of Merton. They are a group of 40 volunteers from 16 different churches offering help to anyone whatever their race, colour or religion. Each year over 150 families, whose lives are in crisis, are supported. They are always in need of food, clothes and furniture, so please follow the link to their website for their latest requirements.
Several people from Martin Way volunteer for Christian Care. If you are interested please look at their Volunteers page and get in touch.

Faith in Action

By holding a fund raiser (see above), we continue to support Merton Faith in Action, who every Wednesday and Friday throughout the year, run the Merton Homeless Drop-in with the help of volunteers. On average about 65 homeless and vulnerably housed people attend each session. These are mainly men, and a few women, for whom little other help is available. As well as a warm and friendly welcome they can get a high-quality hot lunch, internet access and help with filling in on-line forms, and help with moving on. Learn more about this charity at the FiA website.
