Unshakable Hope

In a world full of instability, hope is hard to come by. There are so many reasons to feel overwhelmed…

Starting tomorrow night, join us as we look at Unshakable Hope, over a 12 week period this dvd study guide by Max Lucado unpacks some of the Bible’s most significant promises. Gods promises in scripture can equip and give us hope that we can trust in Him to help us face difficult circumstances.

Everyone welcome! Wednesdays @ 7:30pm, lead by Rev Sam Campbell

Christmas Eve – Watch Night Service

This late night Christmas Eve Service has become a tradition in Mossley. Everyone who attends are in agreement, that, taking part in this time through reflection on the nativity and the singing of carols gives meaning and value to the season.

So make up your mind to join us in a few hours at 11pm and experience the deep sense of joy of having given thanks and then stepping outside and into the gift of Christmas morning.

Carols and 9 Lessons by Candlelight

The noise of Christmas can be overwhelming as we find ourselves running from pillar to post, ticking off the next item on our ‘to do’ list. Bottom line, it’s just incredibly hard to find a sense of peace on the run up to Christmas.

So tomorrow evening why not side-step and ‘gift’ yourself an hour in the glowing atmosphere of Carols by Candlelight. Here we will make our way together through the wonderment of the nativity story, the birth of Emmanuel, God with us.

Service begins at 6:30pm. Mince pies afterwards.

Good tidings …we bring dates for your Christmas 2019 Diary

You are not alone if you are drawn to the possibility of attending a church service over the Christmas period. We hear carols mixed with Christmas soundtracks whilst shopping, mixed in with TV adverts or over the car radio from December day one, However, it’s really special to hear and take part in singing them within a church setting through the retelling of the Christmas story.
Like many songs we sing in church the words are not only a personal comfort, but also prayers for the world we live in…
“Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay close by me for ever, and love me, I pray.” – Away In A Manger
So dear reader, whether you choose to (or not to) attend any of our listed services below, the leadership team at Mossley Methodist would like to send you their wishes through the words of another famous carol…
“Good tidings we bring to you and your kin. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

Giving at Christmas … 2019 Toy Appeal

Mossley Methodist continues to support the Newtownabbey Methodist Mission with their annual Gift Appeal, helping families in need at Christmas.

A new toy or game (for ages between 0 to 14) will be gladly received as part of next Sundays service, December 1st. Just place your gift unwrapped and under the tree at the front of the church.

ALSO if buying a present proves difficult, then maybe you would prefer donating to The Voucher Scheme. A NMM donation box will be provided to place your enveloped money gift. These donations will go towards buying gas & electricity vouchers for a family in Greater Newtownabbey this Christmas.

Many thanks in advance for your kindness and continued unwavering response!
