Sundays September 9th, September 23rd, October 14th, October 28th

“Talking of God Together” provides an opportunity to develop confidence in something many of us struggle with: For some of us, faith is something that is seen as private and therefore not something we want to engage in conversation about. For others, it is a real disappointment when even within the life of our congregations, amongst those with whom we spend a lot of our time, there is no opportunity to talk about the issues we face living out our discipleship in the world

During the early part of autumn, the Rev'd Cameron Kirkwood will be exploring new Methodist resource material in worship at Poplar and Bow Road. The experience of worship on those Sundays may be a little different from usual , but Cameron hopes that through exploring the various themes and sharing in conversation together, we may all grow in confidence in being able to Talk of God Together.

Healthy Church

Following a Healthy Church Review in October 2017, the congregation at Poplar have committed themselves to finding ways in which we can grow in our faith and find ways to serve the wider community in response to God’s love for us.  At the heart of that renewed commitment is a desire to be energised by faith.

The Healthy Church Review encouraged us to seek to find out what God wants.  The review helped us to resist trying to decide what we want or think is important, but rather what is God calling us to be in the coming years. To achieve this, we committed ourselves to:

Providing every member of the congregation with devotional material so that no matter where we are on each day, we will be joined together in study, reflection and prayer. 

To use Sunday differently, making use of a more interactive style of worship that will encourage a greater sense of commitment and sense of belonging.

Encouraging members to share in worship something of the way God is at work in their lives through either testimony or interview.

By ensuring that there is always time in worship for the sharing of news, the joining together in celebration and the focusing on issues of concern whether they be, personal, local, national or international

Work amongst children and young people

Poplar Methodist Church is greatly blessed in having a strong and committed group of children and young people who attend on Sunday.  These young people have a strong sense of commitment to each other and their Sunday group activities are an important part of their commitment to Jesus and supporting their growing faith.
