Blenheim Methodist Parish

Home  About Us  Worship What We do 

Worship

We gather for worship on Sunday morning at 10.00am and there is a warm invitation to join us.

Holy Communion is on the first Sunday of each month.

Everyone is invited and welcome to participate in receiving communion. 

We celebrate communion with an open table, which means that  we welcome anyone to join us in receiving the bread and grape juice, from any background of faith and any age. It is Methodist practice not to serve wine, but unfermented grape juice. People are invited to come forward for communion and may kneel or stand. For those unable to move easily, the Presbyter will serve them where they are seated.

The 1905 Hobday organ is played to accompany traditional and contemporary hymns. We use songs from NZ Hymnbook Trust collection, many written by Colin Gibson and Shirley Murray. We also sing great Wesley hymns, sometimes amending the words to make them more inclusive and relevant. On occasion the choir will provide music.

On any 5th Sunday in a month we have a combined service with our neighbours St Andrews Presbyterian. Also during January the two congregations share worship together.

  

Tongan Fellowship

On Communion Sundays the Tongan Congregation join us for worship. They also have services on Sunday afternoons speaking in their Tongan language.
