Into the New Year
New Year's Eve
We wish everyone a peaceful and hopeful New Year.
While we do not have a service at EFM on New Year's Eve there is a United Service at Finchley Methodist Church, Ballards Lane, Finchley, N3 at 11.15pm.
The Twelve Days of Christmas is a festival starting on 25th December and ending on 5th January. In Western Christianity, 6th is observed as Epiphany and prinipally commorates the visit of the Magi (the wise men) to the Christ Child in Bethlehem.
Often this day is midweek and in 2017 Epiphany falls on the Friday after the First Sunday of Christmas.
The Covenant Service
This is a very important service in Methodism at the beginning of the New Year where we recommit ourselves to God's service.
The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship between God and his people is accepted and sustained by us. God has already offered us a loving relationship and we seek to live within this relationship sustaining it with his help.
The Covenant Service is uniquely Methodist but is now adopted by other denominations.
Our Covenant Service will be held on Sunday ? January 2017 at 10.30am and is led by our own minister Revd. Michael Giles.
