Sorry today’s post is a bit late. That’s what time off does for you – I forgot!
However I hope that you enjoy today’s worship led y Revd John McNeill.
Today we worship on the Sunday before Lent, which begins this week on Ash Wednesday (don’t forget the pancakes on Tuesday!). Our worship shared with all of our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Gloucestershire Circuit and beyond, is led by Revd Michelle Ireland. First there is a reflection from me on the Transfiguration – that special mountain top experience Jesus shared with his disciples based on Mark 9:2-9.

A Visit from the President
This week the Gloucestershire Circuit was due to receive a visit from the President of the Methodist Conference. Because of the Covid restrictions, a physical visit was not possible and so the President – the Rev’d Richard Teal has sent his sermon in the form of a video included with this morning’s act of worship. The photo above shows the President with the Vice President, Carolyn Lawrence.
