Coronavirus updates

Great News! Easter Sunday will see us opening the church building to allow people to attend worship in-person rather than online for the first time in 2021. Until then we continue to stream Sunday services live on YouTube and there will be a Good Friday service of meditation and reflection which will also appear on YouTube. Until we re-open ‘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!
