Worship at Home

Public services in Tower Hamlets circuit are currently suspended

Tower Hamlets Worship at Home - Thank You!

I want to thank all of those who have been working so hard to keep providing worship opportunities: 
Terry, John Singleton, Mercy, Florence and Michael have been brilliant  We are also grateful to the many people who have recorded a clip of a reading or prayer or testimony. A special thank you to Irene who works tirelessly to edit and produce the services.

The Circuit Leadership Team have agreed that we should not meet in church for worship at the current time. The advice is that we only start to resume services in church when the situation improves. We will review this at the end of January.

Rev'd John Hayes

A time of reflection when you can’t attend a funeral

When someone you love dies, saying goodbye in some formal way is important.  This is one of the reasons that throughout the generations we have gathered for funerals and memorial services.  With the current restrictions on movement in place it may not be possible for everyone to attend a funeral.
We offer this short act of worship to help you say your formal goodbyes whist in your home.
