Reading Services

Circuit reading services are prepared and sent out every week via email with St John's notices and from the circuit administrator. A link to this week's service is here: Service for August 9th. If you would like to receive these by post contact John Nunn.

Zoom Services

As we cannot meet in the church our weekly sevices have moved onto Zoom. You can join these services from a PC, tablet or smartphone with sound and video or from a mobile phone or landline with sound only. Contact details for the services will be sent out with St John's notices in the preceding week. If you have any queries or difficulties please contact Peter Thorpe by email at peter.thorpe@gulmay.com or phone on 01492 580112.

Holiday Club

This year's Holiday Club has had to go online too. It will run from 10th to 14th August and sessions will start at 10:30 every day and run for about 30 minutes. To register children and receive their resource packs for the week email sue.eckersleybangormethodist@gmail.com

Virtual Church Lunches

We cannot currently eat together as we usually did on the first Sunday of the month. However to give people the chance to talk as they would have done at the lunches a virtual lunch runs after the service on the first Sunday of the month. At the end of the service everyone is able to unmute and shortly after that split into groups of about 5 people, using Zoom's breakout rooms feature. These groups are initially random, but people are able to see who is in which group and to move between groups to talk to peoplr they wish to. These groups will run for about an hour, but you are free to leave whenever you like.

Wednesday Study Group

The group continues to meet every Wednesday evening at 7pm via Zoom. All are welcome. If you want to attend a meeting contact Jean Ware on j.ware@bangor.ac.uk or 01492 580112 to get the Zoom link.

WhatsApp Group

To help people keep in touch there is a WhatsApp group. The group is called "St John's Bangor" and if you would like to join you need to email or text the word "Yes" along with your mobile number to either John Hay or John Nunn. You do need a mobile phone but provided you have one which is connected you can work on your laptop or tablet. This St John's group will only consist of people who attend St John's.
