Broomfield Methodist Church, Chelmsford

Seeking to love and serve God in the community and in the world

Church information during the Coronavirus emergency

There can be no doubt that we have entered an extraordinary period when faith communities are being asked to consider their activities and health security of premises.

 Our church is  following guidance issued on 16th September 2021 by the Methodist Church. We will keep this page updated with information about our church services and other information.

The Methodist church has issued guidance at:

Whilst it is no longer a Government requirement, whilst local infection rates remain high we suggest you wear a mask whilst entering the building for public worship . It is your choice whether to wear one during the singing.

Online worship services will continue at 10am every Sunday until further notice

 Our Church is not defined by the four walls in which people meet together, but we are a community of Christian believers who value each other and all the people we serve in our locality.  

As a church we have been looking at ways of developing our web site to maintain our worshiping community and to devise ways in which we can reach vulnerable groups who might not have access to the internet and our website.

There is a prayer box installed outside the church where any members of the Broomfield community and beyond can place prayers for themselves or others.

Hirers of our church and Hall

The health and security of everyone who uses our church premises is of utmost importance. The COVID-19 outbreak has presented our community in Broomfield, as it has others across the country, with unprecedented challenges. A risk assessment may have to be agreed with the Property Managers during Government restrictions before concluding hire arrangements.
