Covid-19 Support Request

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these are difficult and challenging times. At a recent meeting of the District Advance Fund (DAF) Committee it was agreed to set aside £200,000 to provide help and assistance to the district, circuits and churches.

The fund is now available and circuits and churches are, therefore, invited to complete the application form which must be signed by the Superintendent Minister.


The fund will be open initially for a period of 18 months. Applications can be made for help for items such as cleaning, PPE equipment and sanitiser, and help with audio-visual equipment (for worship purposes). Applications for other items/reasons are welcome.

For more information and to access the application form, please click here.

List of radio stations for worship

As church worship services are suspended, we will all be looking for new ways to continue worshipping from our own homes. Radio is one such medium by which we can all come together in and continue to worship. Here is a list of radio stations offering worship services. If we have missed any, please contact us via email and we will update the list.
