Resources for Local Arrangements

Due to the availability of Preachers the Circuit is needing to plan more Local Arrangements for local churches. This page offers a range of resources to help churches plan for such services.

A monthly 'Support for Local Arrangements Sheet' will be issued providing seasonal resources for the next 2 months ahead.

Issue 7 - August 2022

Reflective Lectionary Gospel Reading

Starting in September, Adam Biddlestone will prepare a dramatized version of the Gospel Reading for each Sunday . These can be used in worship.


Pre-recorded hymns - a collection of hymns from Singing the Faith from the virtual choir at Victoria Methodist Church, Bristol. All                                                                hymns have accompanying lyrics. Ideal for use in Zoom and in-person worship.

Perfect Little Gentleman - a YouTube Channel containing a dramatic telling of the Lectionary Gospel Reading for each Sunday, prepared                                                            and delivered by Methodist Minister, Rev. Phil Summers.

Singing The Faith Plus- a website dedicated the Singing the Faith hymn book, including suggested hymns for each Sunday, sound clips                                                           for each hymn and new hymns set to Singing the Faith tunes.
