We would like to encourage you to get in touch if you would be willing to take part in our worship in any way; by playing a song or doing a reading or leading a prayer, etc. It doesn’t matter what your age or technical ability – if you want to contribute, we should be able to help make that happen. Even if you can’t record a video clip on your phone, we would be able to record something over the phone. 

We would love to include more Cardboard Testimonies in future services. Please consider recording or photographing something and send it to either Irene or John. Let us know if you need some technical help to do this.

You can see all the MCTH past services playing on YouTube here, at any time

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.
