Worship is a big part of the life of glmc. As you might expect, our Sunday services are an important part of the way we worship but there's more to it than that.
Music has always figured prominently in Sunday worship and we do all the traditional hymns with organ/piano as well as contemporary worship songs with a worship band. Our brass band also plays an occasional part in worship services.
Our worship doesn't stop once we're out of the church building. We try to give glory to God in all aspects of our lives - socialising, work, and leisure. Social Justice is one way in which we integrate worship and everyday life. We preach into the issues and it impacts on the way we care for the environment... fairtrade and the things we buy in the shops... people caught in poverty... tackling the issues of homelessness and addictions. We also play our part in distinctly Methodist charitable work such as All We Can, Methodist Women in Britain etc.
We are just as concerned to play our full part in the community of Great Lumley by making positive contributions when and where we can. Members of the church are involved with local politics, community amenities and the annual Great Lumley Festival.
