ECG 2022: Yesterday: Today: Forever – Celebrating God’s faithfulness

The theme for 2022 celebrates that, in the constantly changing world, we can be certain of one thing – God never changes.

This year marks 14 years of ECG’s ministry.  This will be the final year of ECG conferences in the way we have known them.  As this era comes to a close and we look to the future, rejoicing in God’s faithfulness over the past years and certain that he will be with us as we journey on in to a new adventure.  Will you join us?  

Come and be inspired, renewed, refreshed.  Come and hear God’s voice and find a new vision foryourself and your church.  Come and be equipped to make a difference.

19th – 24th April 2022 booking is now open. There is also advice on how to carry over bookings from the previous two years. Follow the link here: ECG Events

Gloucestershire Police Male Voice Choir

The Choir is on tour during April and will be singing at Westborough Methodist Church on Saturday April 2nd supported by The Dalesman and an introductory performance from Paul MCCann on the organ as the audience take their seats. Paul will start playing at 7pm and the Choirs will be introduced at 7.30pm. A full programme from both choirs is guaranteed with the pair coming together before the interval to sing “An American Trilogy” and closing the evening with “Monte Criste”. We are pleased to welcome the Westborough Guides who will be looking after refreshments during the interval with their usual tea or coffee and cakes. Entrance fee of £5.00 on the door.

Daily Online Meditations for Holy Week

The District is co-ordinating a series of daily online meditation videos for Monday to Saturday of Holy Week. Working in collaboration with people across different circuits, these 15-20 min daily videos will be something that hopefully can supplement local initiatives and be used by circuits/churches for content on social media, websites, mid-week groups, etc. or just as a shareable link to complement what you’re doing. As with all district online material, you’re welcome to signpost people to the district versions which will be available on social media, or take and use the content locally which will be available for download in advance. Holy Week Videos 2022 – Yorkshire North & East Methodist District (yorkshirenemethodist.org)

Also attached a booklet containing the prayers for those who wish to access them this way. You are encouraged to distribute this widely.
