Ideas & Resources for Worshipping at Home

Although we cannot now gather together physically for worship, there are many ways in which we can continue to worship together from our own homes. Below are a number of different options you might like to consider.


As well as the above resources and services, we wanted to find ways in which we could still worship together as a circuit, so we are going to try to meet together using video conference call software.

This is very easy to set up and works on laptops, phones and tablets. There is even an option for people to join in using their home landline phones.

If you would like to be involved in this please join our specially formed Facebook group, (CLS Circuit Worship @ Home) or alternatively you can email me and I will send you the instructions you need to join in.

There is aservice held every Sunday:

10:30am - CLS Circuit Worship @ Home service

We will also be posting some sermons on our Circuit YouTube channel. There are a few there already and new ones will be added each week.

They can be accessed here:

The Methodist Church has produced some printable service sheets for the next few weeks, which you could print out for yourself, or for someone in your church who does not have internet access. They can be found here:…/worship-during-the-coronavi…/
