There can be few people coming into Gloucester City Centre that fail to notice the magnificent structure of scaffolding around St John's Northgate Methodist Church.

Essential work is required to repair the gutters on the south side of the roof and flashings around the upper mansard roof which is currently leaking onto the nave ceiling, causing damage to plasterwork and threatening some of the historic monuments. The total cost of the work is around £65,000.

Twelve months ago St John's were delighted to be awarded a 'Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Grant' for £54,000. A further grant of £5,000 from Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust was presented to St John's at the service on Sunday 25 June by the Chairman of the Trust's Grants Committee; Jonathan MacKechnie-Jarvis. This much-needed grant will now ensure that this essential work can be completed.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, The Methodist Church has published a service to mark our return to public worship called "Beyond Exile". A lot of people have drawn on the Old Testament accounts of the experience of Israel in exile in trying to make sense of what has been happening over the past few months as we have been unable to use our buildings. There is a danger in...
