Coronavirus has affected us all in so many ways. Restrictions on what we can do, who we can meet and where we can go has become a normal way of life.
The way we worship has been affected profoundly. People have discovered ways to share together in fellowship through apps like Zoom, Facebook and YouTube, or accessed materials for spiritual development and learning.
Even today, as restrictions have eased altogether, the emergence of new variants of the virus causes anxiety and uncertainty and it becomes clear that, for a while at least, worship will have to be a "hybrid" mix of face to face and online services.
We have a number of ways you can experience acts of worship at home:
Worshipping from Home
For those wanting to continue to worship at home, resources can be downloaded here
Burley Methodist Church have a regular online worship you can see via YouTube here
We will continue to publish regular pastoral letters here
Covid Guidance from the Methodist Church can be accessed here
The Wharfedale and Aireborough Circuit encompasses a diverse range of communities. From post-industrial mill towns to affluent commuter belt; from market towns and small, rural villages to popular tourist hotspots. In the same way, our communities encompass a wide variety of worship styles.
As a circuit team we are committed to enabling individuals and churches to grow in their Christian faith, so that the church does not simply have members, but committed disciples of Jesus Christ.
Whatever your reason for visiting our website, we hope you enjoy the experience, please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) if there's anything you'd like to know.
