This page includes everything you need to know about how UMC is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  1. We have set up a UMC WhatsApp group to keep everyone updated. Only our minister and secretary are able to post to the groups, and we promise not to spam you with too much content! To join the Whatsapp group, click here on your phone / tablet.
  2. Our Sunday services are being held in person (subject to the lockdown regulations of the day). But we will also be worshipping online together at 08h30 and 10h00 on Sundays here: (If you can't make it at the starting times, there will be a recording available later on our YouTube channel). First prize though is for as many as possible of us to be online together - there is a public chat forum that we can use and even though we are not physically together, we're hoping this will give us a sense of being a community together during this challenging time.
  3. The church office is open, but you can also phone us on the office number (032 947 0173).
  4. For pastoral concerns, please phone Mark or Elaine, or contact Janet via the office.
  5. Giving: The limitations on in-person services has had a real financial impact on the church. Wonderfully though so many of you have made use of electronic giving during this time. Visit our giving page for more details.
  6. Sign up for the Journey App and keep up to date with sermon audio, blog posts, small group questions and daily devotions.
  7. Children and youth: We are meeting in person at 08h30 on Sundays and have online options too if lockdown conditions are re-imposed
  8. Small groups are meeting in person and online
