16 January 2021 9.30am — 12.15pm
At the Annual Covenant Service, the Methodist people are invited to renew their Covenant relationship with God.
The emphasis of the whole service is on God's readiness to enfold us in generous love, not dependent on our deserving. Our response, also in love, springs with penitent joy from thankful recognition of God's grace; (Methodist Worship Book).
We shall spend the morning in guided reflection and quiet exploring the spirituality of covenant and our relationship with God.
The Methodist Covenant Service is regarded as a significant contribution to the wider church in the UK.
