The Rev. Dr. Thomas McKnight, the President of the Methodist in Ireland and Mrs. Hazel Loney, the Lay Leader of Conference have, on behalf of the Methodist Church in Ireland have issued the following Statement on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh:

The members of the Methodist Church in Ireland join with millions of others around the world in offering our sympathy to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and her whole family on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

His life has been one of service from his distinguished war time service in the Royal Navy to his role as consort for over 70 years.

The Duke will be remembered for many things such as the award which bears his name and which opened up a whole new world of skills and activities which enriched and continue to enrich the lives of generations of young people.

Most of all the Duke will be remembered as a loving husband and support to Her Majesty – a love which death cannot break.

We commend Her Majesty, her family and all who mourn the Duke’s passing to the love of God.

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.
