Today’s activities can be found in detail on other pages, suffice to say that without those early pioneers and the many along the way, then we would not be witnessing today the abundance of activities we have.

Our Sunday Evening Worship is the end of an era!  On Sunday 27th August 2017, Providence held its last evening service. It is with regret, that due to declining attendance, the Church Council had made the decision to make this the final evening service. Joyce Adams lead our worship, 20 people attended with members taking part reading their chosen Bible reading, choosing their hymn along with why they had chosen them. Since 1850, there has been an unbroken chain of 167 years of Sunday Evening Worship. Records show that a group met under the Methodist Banner in 1850, with three meetings each Sunday. 1856 saw the first purpose built Church, with Morning and Evening Worship. For what the future holds, I don’t know but what I do know is that I am prepared to leave the future in the hands of our Father. Derek

  Unprecedented event.2020/21 Providence along with most churches in the UK has been closed for a period in excess of 12 months with a brief respite in the centre 5 services A virus known as covid-19 has been responsible for the whole world having many deaths, UK over 27000 All activities at Providence have been suspended for over 12 months. It is intended to reopen on the 23rd of May 2021 however we are restricted to the numbers that we can have and still no singing in the service. It is thought that excessive breathing indoors spreads the disease.                   Groups of 30 can meet outdoors 

 During this period the circuit has provided virtual services via the internet and hard copies for those of us who have no internet. Roy Barnard from Providence along with a team have been responsible for the technicalities required. Two services Sunday, morning and evening, the evening service is set to continue.

Providence has maintained contact through a weekly Prayer and Reflections sent to members via the internet. 

During the period we have had 3 deaths with no funeral service available and no memorial service
