The Hiding Place is the story of Corrie Ten Boom, a Christian woman who lived in Haarlem, Holland during World War II, and her family.

Barbara Glasson and Clive Marsh have written to Dierdre Palmer, President of the Uniting Church in Australia:

"Dear Dr Palmer,
We have been deeply saddened to hear of the severity and extent of fires that are destroying so much of your beautiful country, with loss of life, property and much of the rich wildlife for which Australia is renowned. We know that you have little prospect of things improving until the rains come and we want to assure you of our love and prayers as you live through the challenges of the next weeks.

Across the world we are waking up to our shared responsibility for Creation and the delicate balance of the environment. Whilst we hold you in prayer, we also acknowledge, with you the active leadership we all need to call our societies to repent and live differently. The young people of the Methodist Church in Britain are a prophetic voice to us and our next Youth President will take up the green agenda as her manifesto during her Presidential year 2020-21. We know the young people of the Uniting Church are also a voice for change and we must follow their lead in radical and urgent action. We know that you called for such action in your Christmas message.

We are also aware that across the globe climate change is putting many vulnerable communities more at risk. We know that this is particularly the case for the island communities of the South Pacific and this leads to increased refugee migration. Across Europe we are also concerned for the plight of displaced people and are often needing to challenge a hostile environment at home. We pray that we can all offer a voice of acceptance and hospitality and witness the love of God to strangers. We know this isn’t always easy, especially when we all have our own challenges to face.

Although there are many miles between us, we want to assure you of the closeness of our love and solidarity. We pray that you will know the love of God in Christ Jesus from which nothing in all Creation can separate us."

This maybe of interest to older members of our congregation, do you recognise any names? Taken with kind permission from Bicester Memories page.

An extra reminder about our Christmas Eve carol singing.

Christmas services at BMC, hope you can join us.

Don't forget to buy your tickets for the New Year Lunch on Sunday 12th January! ☺️

The President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference

A prayer for General Election week:

God of all wisdom and truth
this week we pray especially for
those who stand for political office
those who vote
those who are afraid of change
those who need change

We pray for MP's and a government
that will challenge poverty,
support the weak,
uphold the fainthearted
and be courageous
on behalf of the most vulnerable.

In this time of Advent waiting
guide us not by self-interest
but by the Way of Jesus
the gentle leader -
bring him to birth amongst us
as Mighty God, Everlasting Father
Prince of Peace


"...I don’t think that there has been an Advent in my lifetime when that message of comfort has been so desperately needed" Read the full Advent message from the Secretary of the Methodist Conference

Methodist Church

A prayer from the President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference:

for unknown people who have died in a lorry

for unknown suffering to family and friends

we pray with heartbreak and sorrow


we know this should never happen

we know that behind the headlines there is an unheard story of despair

we know that we have overlooked things we should have seen

we know that as individuals and a society we need to change

for God’s sake

bring us to our knees in contrition

and to our feet with outrage
