Keeping the Faith
Connecting with God and others during lockdown
On 23 March 2020, the UK government took the unprecedented step of locking down the country in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19). Life as it was previously known came to a grinding halt. Schools were closed, people directed to work from home where possible, and social distancing was enforced.
These measures, coupled with a growing number of people losing their lives to the disease, led the Methodist Church, and other religious denominations to close churches and places of worship to protect people and save the lives of the most vulnerable among us.
At a time such as this, fear is plentiful and yet our places of comfort and worship are no more. We have had to think outside the box, being creative in ministry and acquiring new ways to connect - with each other and with God.
With this in mind, we invite you to share with us the many ways in which you are keeping your faith during this period of lockdown. To find out more about how you can do this, please read the guidance sheet (word version available here). Each video will be uploaded to the London District of the Methodist Church's YouTube channel, and feature both on this page and in the Weekly Update.
