Friends,

The Methodist Church, in common with the Church of England, has announced that all public worship shall be suspended as of now and this situation will continue for as long as necessary. Full advice is available on the Methodist Church in Britain website.

It will be for each church in the Plymouth and Devonport Circuit to consider its pastoral response but in the first instance pastoral contact should be over the telephone. All church councils and circuit meetings across the Connexion have been cancelled until further notice.

May I ask you to pray about this current state of emergency and its impact on all of us in the UK and beyond. When this has passed, as it will eventually, I wonder what we shall have learned and what unexpected good will come from it.

Every blessing,
Simon.

Revd Simon H Leigh.
Superintendent minister: Plymouth and Devonport Circuit
