Welcome to the website for Notting Hill Methodist Church, a warm and welcoming congregation in the heart of Ladbroke Grove. Due to the coronavirus emergency we have suspended all worship, activities and events for the foreseeable future, except for our foodbank which continues to run as usual, though minimising social contact.
We have all been shocked and appalled by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and passionate in our conviction to oppose racism in all its forms.
Here is a prayer inspired by the events of the past few weeks:
O God, your Spirit is poured out on all your people irrespective of nationality or background, and by that same Spirit all are brought together as one: young and old, female and male, black and white.
Descend upon us when we don’t exhibit your essential unity – when we are divided and there is little trust or hope, and where there is fear and hatred; open our eyes and hearts to the way privilege can blind, and to where the experience of prejudice is often brutally stark.
Where your people suffocate through injustice, neglect or need, bring your Spirit that gives life and breath.
May that Spirit cleanse us and purify us of our ignorance, our unjust treatment of each other, our quiet refusal to condemn what is wrong;
remove the destructive spiral of violence that flows from our actions or words;
banish the divisions we put up between ‘us’ and ‘them’ in our society, workplace or church;
release us into that realm of wholeness in diversity where all know their lives matter to each of us and to you;
for we are all sisters and brothers, and all made wonderfully in your image.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Just because we can’t worship together in person doesn’t mean we can’t worship together at all.
Our Sunday Services will now be streamed live using zoom. The link can be found on the church’s Whatsapp group. A slightly edited version of our service held on 21st June can now be viewed at:
