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 at 11.30 am; the link to this is included in the church newsletter.

Please look out on our What’s On page here, or on our social media accounts for updates as things change.

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

We’re delighted to be supporting the Russ Devereux Headlight Project as our nominated charity for 2021. This project is local to us and works with children and adults who need support with their mental health. You can read more about our fundraising 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.

Thy Kingdom Come 2021

Thy Kingdom Come takes place from 13 – 23 May and  is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus. During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:

Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ

Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus

Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness
