Welcome to the Brandlesholme Methodist Church website
We have created these pages in order to tell you a little about our church, where we are in Bury, the times of our services and to give you a way of making contact with us.
We don’t intend that these pages tell you everything about us, so to know more, you can come along and visit us. You will be warmly welcomed!
We understand that arrangements will be discussed shortly to enable church to re-open safely – but no date as yet.
(updated 8 August)
In line with other Churches and a specific directive from the Methodist Church, all activities in our church have temporarily ceased (this includes Sunday Worship). The situation will be under constant review.
We are asked to pray for our loved ones and those around us at 7 pm each Sunday and mark it by placing a lighted candle in our windows.
The Methodist Church website provides guidance and links to online Sunday worship – (please paste into your browser):
The website includes this prayer:
God of all hope we call on you today.
We pray for those who are living in fear:
Fear of illness, fear for loved ones, fear of other’s reactions to them.
May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.
We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty.
For those people who are worried about attending worship.
For those needing to make decisions in order to care for other
For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend.
Grant us your wisdom.
Should you like to be included in the weekly mailing of the Sunday service, please contact us via the website.
We encourage everyone to watch out for neighbours and friends, and serve in whatever ways we can.
