District Online Worship Services

Monthly worship by the district since November 2020 continues to be produced every 4th Sunday for circuits and churches to utilise across Yorkshire North and East. They are usually on the last Sunday of the month and are usually available from a week before. They are uploaded to YouTube and Facebook, and are available below – but are ideally used in local contexts by local churches and circuits, so please contact your superintendent or minister to find out where the service is being published in your local context.

District Online Worship Library

If you wish to download the district services in full, or any of the component parts of the services, then you can do this via our District Online Worship Library: Get access to the resource library
A bank of resources and assets for use in online worship – sharing content from around the district. You’re welcome to re-use old services, sermons, or other components that can be customised for local use – there is a bank of over 20 complete online worship services! We currently have over 70+ recorded hymns from Singing the Faith available for download, some as audio and some as lyric videos. If you have recorded songs/hymns from your church or circuit that you’d be happy to contribute to the library, please contact:  digital@yorkshirenemethodist.org
