Worship

We are currently worshipping from home.

Dundee Methodist Church is part of the Angus Dundee and Perthshire Methodist Circuit, which includes 5 congregations. Within the Circuit we have both lay and ordained preachers, who in the past were planned to preach at the various churches.

During the Covid pandemic, our preachers are producing one act of worship each Sunday, which can be viewed by all our congregations, and anyone else who wishes to view. It is available on YouTube from 9am on each Sunday. Members of all the churches are contributing to the prayers and readings.

Not everyone has access to the web, so if you know of anyone who would like a DVD or script of the service, please email, giving details of name and address, and whether you want a DVD or a script; if you let us know by the middle of the week, we aim to get it to you by Sunday.

Our worship until March 2020

We meet each Sunday for worship at 11 am; EVERYONE is welcome. Our worship normally lasts for about an hour, and is followed by an opportunity for fellowship.

Sunday Morning worship

  • All ages worship together in the church for the first part of the service.
  • Children may choose to sit at a supervised table, within the worship area; there we have toys, jigsaws and colouring activities. Part way through the worship, children may leave for their own activities within the church building. All return for the conclusion of worship.
  • Tea, coffee, juice and biscuits are served after the service, and all are welcome to stay and converse.
  • Each 5th Sunday in the month (4 times a year), we hold a caf√©-style service, with tea/coffee and cakes served at tables before and during worship.
  • We have an induction loop for those with hearing aids.

Preachers
Worship is conducted either by one of our ordained ministers or by a lay ‘local preacher’. Preaching appointments are arranged according to the Plan drawn up quarterly for the five congregations in the Circuit.

Sacrament of Holy Communion
This is celebrated once a month in the course of Sunday morning worship.
We alternate  between

  • the stewards taking the elements to the congregation in their seats
  • the congregation going up to the front to receive the elements; anyone who wishes may still be served in their seat.
    The table is open to all who love the Lord.

The Covenant Service

This distinctive Methodist service is celebrated once a year; in Dundee, this is at the beginning of September.
