At Heaton Mersey Methodist Church we aim to make our family worship a time of sharing together about what God has to say to us in the 21st century. Family Church is an informal service for the whole family which happens on the first Sunday in the month at 10.30am.
We like to talk, make things, listen and share breakfast around tables. We enjoy sharing good news, celebrating birthdays and following Jesus’ example of loving one another. We would love you to come and join us!
Family Church happens on the 1st Sunday of the month. Our upcoming dates are:
Sunday 1st May (Jesus is Alive!)
Sunday 5th June (Pentecost)

Family Church - March
At Family Church in March, we thought about the parable of the Lost Sheep, particularly about the character and role of the shepherd. A shepherd searches out food for the sheep, so we planted some cress seeds to remind us of how God provides. The shepherd knows that it won’t always be easy for the sheep. Sometimes they have to travel across empty, desert spaces, but the shepherd leads them through. Sometimes, there is the threat from other animals, like lions and bears. But the shepherd keeps his flock together, even sleeping with them, to make sure that they are safe. He also employs some rather unusual looking dogs to move in amongst the sheep without being recognised by the predators. So, we made our own flock of sheep, huddled together under the protection of the shepherd. We had great fun looking for sheep, and re-telling the story.
