President and Vice-President visit Lambeth Palace
At the start of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the President and Vice-President, the Revd Sonia Hicks and Barbara Easton, met with the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace, continuing a strong friendship between the denominations and offering opportunities for fellowship and to pray together.
After the visit Barbara Easton said: "I am moved to invite you to pray for all our sisters and brothers who make, with us, a great quilt of diverse Christian belonging and expression. And to pray for all those whom God has called to lead in his church. May God also equip those whom God calls, and give them courage, wisdom and energy for the work."
More photos and comment from the visit are on the Presidential Facebook page here.

THIS WEEK'S WORSHIP AT HOME SERVICE IS FROM THE MISSION (23/01)
Our doors will be open every day during 2022!
We have been helping Londoners to help people who are rough sleeping since 1876, meeting the specific needs of each man and woman who walks through our doors.
Based in the Methodist circuit, we are a volunteer led work with very few staff, but this does not mean we are a small organisation.First, we help people by meeting immediate needs: food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. In our recovery programmes, we address deeper needs for life-skills and job-skills training, and addiction recovery. We measure our progress against four criteria which indicate to us that a life has been transformed from homelessness to hope: connection to family, commitment to sobriety, a job and a place to live, and a plan for the future.
The Whitechapel Mission is called to serve the men and women caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and to see their lives transformed to hope, joy and lasting productivity. We promote the concept of being part of the Mission and taking ownership of the Mission. Any and all who come are welcome.
The Chapel and Museum is now open for visits Tuesday to Saturday from 11.00-1500. The Georgian Town House is now open to visitors in very small groups, when staff are available. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment. New exhibition running since19th October, until the end of January. Following on from Black Lives Matter and Leadership on a journey, the current exhibition reviews immigration, the Church, and the experiences of a number of immigrant office holders:
An exhibition celebrating the rich diversity that exists within the Methodist Church, through an exploration into the lives of Black, Asian and global diaspora leaders within Methodism and a history of migration.
