The Church has Left the Building

Hi Table View Methodist Family, In response to the call to limit the spread of Covid-19 our congregation will be practicing strict "social distancing."  This means that we are encouraging you not to come to church on Sunday but rather to join us online for a service that will be broadcast live over the internet.  We will use Facebook live streaming to broadcast the service. The church will be open with very limited seating for those who are not able to join us online.  The seats will be spread apart to prevent physical contact.  Physical distancing means that we avoid physical contact with others.  - We try to stay at home wherever possible.  - We use the telephone instead of visiting. - To prevent total isolation use Whatsapp video calling or voice calling rather than just texting. - Use the phone to check up on your neighbours etc. - Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Bible Study tonight at 7pm will be shared online via our facebook pa
