Circuit News & Events

On behalf of the Lambeth Circuit, we would like to welcome Rev. Dr. Andrew Lyons to our Church Family.  We hope that we would both be blessed by his Ministry here in Lambeth.

We know that, for some Ministers, moving appointments can be both exciting and at the same time daunting while for others it could also be lonely at times.  Moving in to a new Church presents a lot of questions, such as ‘ Will I fit in with my new Church family?’ – What are their expectations & will I be able to meet them and vice versa in terms of the Congregation?  As we undergo this transition phase in our Church life, may we all draw strength and unity in the love and grace of our Lord, Jesus and be blessed with wisdom to embrace His will and plan for us, as a Church family.  Welcome Rev. Dr. Lyons!

TULSE HILL FUNDRAISING FUN DAY!!!

The Old Organ was installed when the Church was re-opened in 1970.  2016 meant the old organ was 46 years old.  It was a two manual electronic Miller Organ.  Forty six years for a pipe organ is a relatively small length of time but for an electronic organ, 46 years meant the organ was at the dusk of its time with notes  ciphering and some stops  sounding  hoarse. After the organ’s long service, the Church decided to get a New One.

On the 24th  of September 2016, an Organ Dedication Service at the Church led by the Rev. Andrew Dart was held to celebrate the New Organ installed by Alan Goulding. This was achieved, thanks to the advice of Marilyn Harper (Southwark and South London Society of Organists) and Malcolm Starr the Organ Adviser of the Methodist Churches in England.  Malcolm recommended installing this pipe organ which was transferred from a Church in Oldham.  Malcolm also recommended Alan Goulding as the organ builder.  Since then we kept raising fund for this project.

Our next fund raising event – the  HYMNATHON is on SATURDAY - 23 SEPTEMBER (see above for more details).  You are all invited to this fun-filled day!
