Earlsdon Methodist Church

The Sunday Services Plan

The Methodist Church in general is organised as a set of "Circuits" which are served by a small group of Ordained Ministers, supported very greatly by Lay Preachers. The organisation of the preaching is provided under a "Plan" which is published for the whole Circuit on a quarterly basis. Our church forms part of the Coventry & Nuneaton Circuit.

Below is the plan for Earlsdon during the period 2 December - 24 February 2019. The description of each Sunday is generally in accordance with "The Methodist Worship Book". A "Local Arrangement" indicates that the service is organised by the church members.
