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.

Covid-19 has given, and continues to give, us all many challenges, and some opportunities also (in a very strange way). 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?

But things will change, and though we may never return to how things used to be, there is a new 'norm around! The words from Michaela Youngson, above, have given us much food for thought over the past year, but now we are looking forward in hope - vaccinations are taking place, the Government's road map our of Lockdown began with children returning to school as from 8th March, whilst on 29th March there opened up a chance for us to meet other people outdoors in a small group. Today, 12th April is a milestone day, when non-essential shops can open, as can hairdressers etc. - geat excitement! But caution, care, social distancing, and sanitising continue to be the watchwords. 

The Litany continues: 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."

Our new song at Alderley Edge Methodist Church is that we opened on Easter Day, 4th April 2021, with a Service of Celebration led by our Minister, Rev. Rod Hill........a Service to note with joy the Risen Christ, a Service of Hope and of looking ahead with new vision, and a Service of real celebration of being in our building once again.It was a very special occasion.

Then a great sadness moved across our nation, and indeed across the world, as we learned of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh on Friday 9th April. Still sensing the hope, peace and joy of it being the First Week after Easter, our Morning Service on Sunday 11th April was a mix of those feelings with the deep need to acknowledge and give thanks for Prince Philip's life and devoion to his Wife, the Queen, and to our Nation. Rev. Pam Butler led a most moving Service, for which the congregation, sizeable in number once again, was most appreciative to share in.
