Welcome to AEMC

Loving God, Loving Others

 

We seek to make our worship stimulating, challenging and relevant to the needs of our congregations. We offer space for all ages to meet and explore faith in different ways. We demonstrate our faith through social action and share fellowship in house groups, in prayer and in regular social events.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our many services and events.

Although churches can open once again so long as certain restrictions remain in place, Alderley Edge Methodist Church has taken the decision to remain closed until the first Sunday in September. We are all looking forward very much to returning to our beloved building and to meeting one another again face-to-face; however we want to be certain that we have everything correctly in place to keep everyone as safe as ever possible. That is of the utmost importance to us.

We will continue our online service this Sunday, 19th July, but will share with our friends at Knutsford Methodist Church the 10.00a.m. Service on 26th July - this will be a Farewell Service for our Superintendent Minister, Rev. Rob Cotton, as he and his Wife prepare to move to Wakefield to take up a new appointment there.

We will have no online Services during August, but look forward to opening our church doors ready for the 11.00a.m. Service on Sunday, 6th September. Look forward to seeing you there!

 

A Quote from Litany written by Past-President, Rev. Michaela Youngson, Chair of the London District: "We thought we knew how the world was meant to be. We made our plans, held our meetings. kept the roof on the church and the show on the road. How can we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?

And now, we know something new. We know that church is not committees, agendas, and buildings, It is us, in homes, streets, hospitals throughout the world  God is teaching us a new song, for a new land."

Prayer for the day
Cat Jenkins, from Trinity Methodist Church, Douglas, IofM contributed this prayer into the current Methodist Prayer Handbook: Lord, open the eyes of those in power to the plight and needs of those whose lives they affect. Help them to remember that they are accountable not just to those who lobby, or vote, or donate, and not only to those who look and speak like them, but to the voiceless, the impoverished and the disenfranchised. Help them, and us, to keep in mind your call to love the ‘other’, not just those made in our own image, but all who are made in yours. Amen
