Arnside Methodist Church

Kendal Circuit Cumbria District

  Minister: Rev. David Stretton


Unfortunately, due to Cumbria now being in Tier 4 and with clear restrictions in place for everyone, we have taken the decision to close the church during January. There will be no Sunday morning services – including the live stream on Youtube – and the church will be closed during the day for private prayer. The Church Prayer Group on a Wednesday will now revert to online meetings. This has not been an easy decision to take but we have to take account of everyone’s safety. We will reassess the situation at the end of the month. We continue to pray for those working in our hospitals and care homes, those who are suffering from Covid 19 and those who have lost loved ones to the virus.

We are continuing to produce an audio service which is recorded each week and published here as an audio file that you can listen to. You can also access the current audio service and recent audio services on our “Audio Service” page link above. We are also able to supply the service on a CD (locally) for those who don’t have Internet access.

As churches we are always holding our village in prayer before God. If you have a particular prayer request – something that you’d like us to pray for – then you can email us at the address below. All requests are treated confidentially. See also more information about our “Prayer Together” group on the “About our Church” page.

Let’s pray for Arnside

We know that you love us and love the world. We thank you for the many blessings that you shower upon us every day. We place all our cares and concerns before you. We especially pray for this village of Arnside: for everyone who lives and works here, and for the many visitors to this beautiful place. Be close to those who are sick, bereaved, lonely or afraid. Enable everyone to know your peace, your comfort and your love. We make our prayer in the name of Jesus who is our risen Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for the Nation

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and senior church leaders
have called a month of Prayer for the Nation during the second
The suggestion is that as many of us as possible unite to do this at 6pm
each day.
These prayers and themes are offered as tools to enable all to participate
and are intended simply as suggestions. Click here to read through the prayers including a suggested seven-day cycle.
