SPECIAL NOTICE

Following the Coronvirus outbreak, services at Pett Chapel remain suspended for the time being.

While we are unable to worship as we would wish, we have been using a number of ways to keep in touch with each other and to maintain the work of the church.

Every Wednesday, at 8pm, we hold a meeting via Zoom, with a varied programme of worship, prayer and study (and always time to chat).

On Sundays, at 10am, Pen Wilcock leads a weekly devotion via Facebook under the name of The Campfire Church.

Both of these meetings are by invitation to ensure that those taking part are able to share their thoughts and feelings within a safe environment. As Pen puts it, opening it up to the whole world would be rather like attending a housegroup and then finding your private conversations splashed all across the newspapers.

To join the Zoom group, just drop us an e-mail to ask for a link. For Facebook, 
when you land on the page you will need to send a request to join. New members are very welcome at both.

If you prefer to just listen or watch, rather than actively participate, there are many options.

Twelve Baskets produce weekly worship resources for use in church, at home or in small groups. The Vine at Home is a particularly nice one, perfect for a short spiritual top up at any time of the week. 

Of course, there are also plenty of services on TV and on the radio or internet, plus podcasts and other types of media that I've never even heard of. I'm sure you'll be able to find all sorts of stuff, but here are three to get you started.

Sunday Worship on Radio 4, at 8.10am and previous broadcasts available on the internet.
Songs of Praise - BBC1 , Sunday. Times vary - catch up on BBC I-Player.
Methodist Central Hall streams regular services and you can view recent ones on Youtube.
The Methodist Church produces regular podcasts featuring stories from around the world of Christians working to bring Christ's love to their local communties.

If you fancy using your time constructively to explore the Bible, maybe for the first time in any depth, the Bible Project offers an engaging introduction on Youtube. Each clip runs for around 6-8 minutes, and provides a very accessible overview of the whole story in around 100 bite-sized chunks. Used as a daily devotional, it would take you right through the Bible in about 3 months and, I suspect, leave you with an appetite to dive in more deeply.

Finally, during the lockdown, Keith has been busy writing songs and re-visiting some old ones. At long last, some of his work is available for the world to view on Youtube. So far, just a few songs have been uploaded, but it is Keith's aim to add to these over the coming weeks. You can find the collection so far at The Music of Keith Miller


 

Post Office to re-open shortly
All being well, it is hoped that the 
Post Office service at Pett Chapel will re-commence on Monday and Thursday afternoons starting from 10th August. Special precautions will be in place, which you are asked to respect, and please be aware that further suspensions are possible as a result of events outside our control.
