Own Arrangements


February 23rd

Rev Calvin Samuel


The preachers/leaders of worship planned over the next few weeks are shown but any appointment may be changed at short notice.

Unless otherwise shown we now only have a morning service at 11am, but occasionally we may have an additional service later in the day. Where two names are shown for one Sunday, the top name for each date is the person leading the morning service and the bottom name is the person leading the later service.

About 5 minutes before the service we have a brief quiet time as we calm our minds in preparation.

We also have four Worship Leaders and encourage all Local Preachers and Ministers to make use of them wherever possible. 

"No service" means that there will be no preaching service held at this time. We may go to another church or we may just meet together.

(S) indicates that the service includes the celebration of the Sacrament of the Lords Supper (Holy Communion)

(LA) and (NPA) stand for Local Arrangement and No Preacher Available. It is up to the local church to make its own arrangements to ensure worship is maintained. Where these appear above it means we have yet to arrange a service or substitute preacher; when the service or preacher is arranged, the details of the service will be updated.

'Members' Own' or 'Own Arrangements'is our local name for a Local Arrangement as the original term is meaningless to anyone other than a preacher!

'Pre-prepared service' - where the person or people leading the service is unaccredited but uses a service written by an accredited preacher. There are a series of these services held by the Circuit Administrator and are available to churches on request.

'TBA' means we are still awaiting the final plan with confirmed details on it.
