We are now scheduling services in the church and simultaneously over Zoom. There are also a few Zoom only services scheduled. However at the moment all services are running over Zoom only. The plan gives details of all the services in the circuit and is here.
Our minister and the circuit superintendent is Rev. John Hughes Telephone 01248 352015. Email.
Any queries should be directed to Cliff Newman, phone 07932174355.
The church will re-open for the Easter Sunday morning communion service. The intention is that there will be services fortnightly in the church, with Zoom services on the alternate weeks. Initially the services in the church will not be on Zoom, but there will be Zoom services from Penmaenmawr on the weeks when there is no Zoom service from St. John's.
Remember that if you want to go to a service in the church you will have to book!
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 March 28th. If you would like to receive these by post contact John Nunn.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or phone on 01492 623920.
Our Sunday morning services were running as "live plus Zoom". These are now running as Zoom only.
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 people they wish to. These groups will run for about an hour, but you are free to leave whenever you like.
Despite the corona virus our mission plan has been updated. The latest version is available here. Please send comments and suggestions to John Hay.
At the recent Methodist Conference the "God for All" initiative was launched. It incorporates "A Methodist Way of Life", a plan to help us with personal discipleship. More details of both of these will appear during the year, and John Hughes is launching a circuit initiative to help us to read the bible regularly: "Read the New Testament in a Year". You can find more about it and a reading schedule for the year here.
The group continues to meet on Wednesday evenings at 7pm via Zoom. All are welcome. See the notices for details. If you want to attend a meeting contact Jean Ware on email@example.com or 01492 623920 to get the Zoom link.
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.
