** NEW ** VINE AT HOME
This week's Vine at Home builds upon The Methodist Covenant Service that was premiered on Youtube on Sunday 17th January. In the reflection by Calvin Samuel he asks “Today, we remind ourselves of our Covenant with God. We encourage ourselves by the Providence of God. And we resubmit ourselves to the service of God. Christ indeed has many services to be done, both inside and outside the church. To which ones will we submit ourselves, this Covenant Sunday?” Service material attached.
What are you being called to?
As part of our Covenant Sunday, we begin a new segment of The Vine at Home resources, which will run right through to Vocations Sunday on 2nd May. During each of these sections, we will have a few moments to reflect on our own sense of calling - what is it that God is asking of us today, this week, this month, and beyond?
In this week's Vine Video Alison Ransom (Connexional Vocations advisor) introduces the theme.

SUNDAY WORSHIP AT CALDY VALLEY SUSPENDED
While public worship is permitted under lockdown regulations, the Diaconate have decided that in the light of the current situation it would be safer not to hold Sunday services at church for the time being. We are sharing online Sunday worship on Zoom with friends from other local Methodist and United Reformed Churches.
To receive the weekly Zoom link please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are continuing to send out a weekly service sheet by post and email which we can use together while we are unable to gather for worship. It will also be posted on the Welcome page each week, and previous services can be found in our Library of On-line services.
