    Our Leadership
    Rev Julia Monaghan, our minister, moved to Leigh from Birmingham in 2012, along with husband Sam, a director of Barnardos Children's Charity. Previously Julia worked for 25 years as a Local Authority Social Worker then served for 5 years as a Methodist minister on the Birmingham circuit.  Supporting Julia is a church family that includes local preachers, a mission enabler for older people, church stewards and many members who take care of our building.
     
    It's Advent...
     
    Advent is the time before Christmas when we prepare to celebrate Jesus's birthday on 25 December.  This year Christmas is on a Sunday, so the 4 Sundays before that (starting on 27 November) are the 4 Sundays of Advent. For each week of Advent, Julia will be writing a reflection.  You can link to each one here:
     
    ...and soon it's Christmas

    Southend Homeless
    For many of us, as days shorten and nights get colder, our thoughts rightly turn to those who are homeless, for whatever reason. You can find some information about our response to this here, with a further update here
     
    Worship
    We meet for worship on most Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and enjoy tea & coffee
    together after the service. We'd be delighted if you came and joined us.
