Coronavirus updates

Although churches are allowed to open for worship during the current ‘lockdown’ the leadership team at GAMC have taken the decision not to meet for worship to protect our vulnerable members and reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. Instead services will live stream on YouTube at 10.30 am on a Sunday morning with only the preacher, a steward and two members of the tech team in the building. This situation will be reviewed in mid-February in light of the latest situation nationally. ‘After-church coffee’ will take place on Zoom 1t 11.30 am; the link to this is included in the church newsletter.

Church online

Over the last ten months or so Great Ayton Methodist Church has done a great deal of work to develop its online presence. This has been a key mission area for us and we expect that this will continue after we begin to be able to meet for worship in person again. Our YouTube channel is averaging around 220 views each week which probably represents close to 300 people taking part in online worship. You can also engage with us via our social media channels using these links:

Church charity

Our year of support for Teesside Hospice has now come to an end. Earlier in February we presented Teesside Hospice with a cheque for  £12,366 the final amount raised and a massive achievement in a very difficult year! You can read more here.  We continue to support Middlesbrough Foodbank and to support a local village driven initiative to provide meals for people who are vulnerable in Ayton.
