Covenant Service on RTÉ 2021

The Methodist Covenant Service

In his hymn “Come all who look for Christ above” (678 Singing the Faith)
Richard G Jones writes these words in v4


“Bring your traditions’ richest store
Your hymns and rites and cherished creeds”


The Methodist Church since its earliest days has celebrated and renewed their Covenant relationship with God using the Scriptures and prayers. John Wesley had used material from the 17th Puritans which he amended to produce what we know as our Annual Covenant Service. Celebrated on the first Sunday of the New Year this service will be used not only by Methodists but by many other branches of the Christian Church. This year’s service on RTE will be conducted by our President, the Rev.Dr.Tom McKnight assisted by members of his Donaghadee congregation.

  • The service will take place at 11:10 AM on RTÉ1 (does not include Holy Communion)
