An update from MCI

May be an image of text that says 'The Methodist Church In Ireland Covid-19: Extended Suspension of In-Person Services & Activities in N.I'An update in line with the recent announcement from the NI Executive, from Secretary of Conference, Rev Dr Heather Morris. The statement elaborates on The Methodist Church in Ireland’s decision to extend the suspension of in-person services and church activities in Northern Ireland.



Our North East District Churches are linked through our World Development & Relief with partners in Ghana. One partnership in particular is with the Wenchi Methodist Hospital, that was marked as a designated response centre for COVID-19 in Ghana. Watch to hear an update from Bernard Botwe, and continue to pray

90527397_1570335829785336_74519576666177536_oWe invite you to join together in a daily rhythm of prayer… Why not set an alarm to remind yourself to stop and pray. In so many ways, it is easy to feel helpless in this current crisis, but prayer invites us to have hope and faith in a God who is with us. So anytime you feel overwhelmed or helpless, cry out to God in prayer and plead for his intervention. Be expectant to see him at work.



  • We are privileged to have Cheryl Patterson as our minister. Cheryl came to us from Gorey, Co. Wexford where she ministered to a friendly active circuit.
  • Prayer is a rewarding and life enhancing conversation with God. But at times it can be difficult. You can feel isolated from others, running out of things to say and getting distracted.

    Jesus encouraged his followers to pray regularly and discipline is needed to accomplish that. Daily prayers help by developing a habit.
