Tilehurst Methodist Church
"Sanctuary" is the name of our Thursday evening prayer service. The service is based on the "service of evening prayer" in the Methodist Worship Book, but with the addition of music to listen to and a reflection from one of the service leaders. You may wish to have a look at one of the orders of service below to see the sort of mix of prayers, readings, music and reflection within a service.
The Sanctuary service was originally intended to be the first service meeting back in the church building, with no hymns and short in length. As it happens, we've so far only met on Zoom, with the pattern of starting at 7pm every Thursday evening. Please see the emailed notices for the Zoom link. The prayer sheets for each service will be made available the day before each service, on this page (just below here). Please download them and either print them off or have them ready to read on your device. If there is a reflection shared during the service, that may not be available to download until after the service.
At some point we expect to meet in a hybrid fashion, with some people in the church building and others on Zoom. When this happens, we'll announce it in the weekly notices.
