Grant AwardsHeart of England Community Foundation Logo

We are delighted to report that RMCC has recently been awarded grants of £3,000 and £15,500 from Heart of England Community Foundation, a charity that raises money to fund and develop local community activity across the West Midlands & Warwickshire. The grants, from their Coronavirus Resilience Fund and Doing Things Differently Fund respectively, are to provide support to organisations helping those most affected by Coronavirus.

RMCC plans to use these grants to enable us to restart some of our face to face social groups: quilting, knitting/crochet and baking groups, and also resume our youth work, whilst ensuring the provision of a safe environment compliant with current Coronavirus regulations. The grant will enable us to provide the necessary ppe and cleaning, as well as additional materials and resources needed for socially distanced activities. We trust that the provision of a welcoming and safe environment will reassure our local community of our commitment to their health and safety.

Annual General Church Meeting

The Annual Church meeting, which is normally held in March, will be on Sunday 9 May this year at 12noon. The date has been changed in the hope that we would be able to have a blended meeting at that time, with some people in the Church and others joining via Zoom. At the meeting we will hear about the work of the Church in the last, different and challenging year, and also elect the Church Stewards and representatives to Church Council.

Black Lives Matter

Rev Dr Barbara Glasson President of Conference says " We are called to embody a gracious, loving spirit of inclusion and understanding. There is no excuse for racism. All people are made in God’s image.  We are one body in Christ Jesus".

Standing Order 013B says "The Methodist Church ‘believes that racism is a denial of the Gospel'".

We are sorry when we have not listened carefully enough and not challenged the assumptions of white privilege and bias and we repent of the Churches part in Racism.

People in need of prayer or practical help

We have a dedicated phone line, and you can text any requests, not only for yourselves but for friends and neighbours. The number is 07496 547512.

We will endeavour to provide weekly updates and as we trial new things, I hope you will bear with us.  Some things will work, others won’t but we will be working at holding us together as the Body of Christ.

I finish with a Celtic blessing

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you
Wherever He may send you
May He guide you through the wilderness
Protect you through the storm
May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you
May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

God Bless
Rev Jane
