MCI moves church services online

The Methodist Church in Ireland this afternoon issued a statement to all its churches in Northern Ireland that gatherings for worship and all other in person church activities should cease until Saturday 6th February 2021.  

It’s President, Rev Dr Tom McKnight, commented “We made this decision in light of the clear advice from health officials that this action would be of benefit to public health and for the sake of the ‘Common Good’. As this Pandemic continues we are particularly mindful of those here and around the world whose lives are most profoundly impacted, people who are isolated, who are suffering or worried because of economic concerns, young people who carry a particular burden, those who are ill, and those who have lost loved ones. The church continues to be committed to doing all we can to support and stand with those in most need.

As a church we continue to pray for those leading our country at this time.

Colleagues in the Church of Ireland, Presbyterian Church in Ireland and Roman Catholic Church are making similar statements at this time."
