All Church Services and Social Meetings are currently cancelled due to the Corona Virus Pandemic
Service sheets have been produced by the Methodist Church and will be provided each week on this site.
We are encouraging chapels to use this at the same time as their chapel service would have been on Sunday
so that we feel that we are still worshipping together, although not physically being together.
Spring Harvest for all the family online … and its free!
Sadly, this year’s Spring Harvest event has been cancelled due to the pandemic. However even though this has left them with a £1.5m hole in their accounts which threatens their very future they are planning to launch the event online via Spring Harvest Home on YouTube from 13th – 17th April.
We can’t go to Spring Harvest this year so they're bringing Spring Harvest to us! - and it will be free and accessible for all. This is an amazing annual event for absolutely all of the family and will include adapted versions of the Big Start, Bible teaching, worship, seminars and perhaps some more light-hearted viewing, right through the day.
The team are currently working non-stop (in self isolation of course) to ensure this reaches us.
Spring Harvest Home will be on YouTube at the following link: SH2020 ...and please subscribe to the Spring Harvest channel and put the dates in your diary.
Moving forward, Spring Harvest believes that they will be able to deliver Spring Harvest again in 2021. Nobody knows what the long-term consequences Covid-19 will have for the event and our nation, but with us standing with them, they firmly believe they will be back next year.

St Paul’s at Upton Cross is easy to find and is right next to the school. The Linkinhorne Parish Hall car park is opposite the church, however people are requested not to park in the Parish Hall car park unless they are attending a parish hall event. There is plenty of parking spaces on the road.
Christians Together in Linkhinhorne have a pastoral team. All members have been fully trained and had DBS checks.
Some of our members are involved in Open the Book.
