WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY
This year The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been prepared by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland. The theme that was chosen, “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit”, is based on John 15:1-17. Each day will be brought to us by a different church leader from the Altrincham, Hale and Timperley area. You can watch the videos here. A new video will be available each morning from Saturday 23rd January.
During this time, with an almost daily escalation of recommendations for self-isolation of those among us who are vulnerable, elderly and/or with compromised immune systems, we felt it essential that we should all have access to a central helpline. This will ensure that if you need any help or support, be it assistance with shopping, pastoral support, prayer, hospital/GP visits or just simply someone to talk to, we can make the quickest response.
There are three ways of contacting the helpline:
1). Telephone the Circuit office on 0161 928 0022. Calls received to this number will be forwarded to the most appropriate person in the pastoral team who can help with your request. The office is not staffed all the time. Please leave a message on the answer phone.
2). Email your request to pastoralcare@AltrinchamMethodistCircuit.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
3). Send a text message to 07860 015449. This will be forwarded to the email address above. his is text only, you cannot speak on this number.
When contacting us, please state your name and contact number and the reason for your call so that we can respond quickly and appropriately. Can we stress that no reason for calling is too trivial - we are here and available to help with any concerns you may have. All of those involved in this new pastoral initiative will have been DBS checked and will have added business cover to their car insurance.
You may well receive offers of help with shopping etc from other members of the community. Most of these are likely to be genuine but please do take care not to make yourself vulnerable to any abuse, however improbable. If in any doubt, please get in touch with us.

Neither height nor depth, nor anything else
in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
