We have returned to weekly worship services* in our sanctuary! Please use the sanctuary entrance that faces Stockley Gardens.
*These are Covid-safe events. COVID-19 Mitigation Plan: Our fully vaccinated guests do not have to wear a mask. Everyone else must wear masks that are well-fitted. Six feet of physical distancing must be maintained by everyone, except for those who are in the same household group. Hugs and handshakes are not allowed. All are required to stay home when sick, and we ask everyone to self check-in at each entrance with our health acknowledgement poster. Mitigation measures, such as wearing a mask, may be reinstated if there is a surge in the positivity rate.

Join us each Sunday for worship. You can watch our online worship on our Facebook page Sundays at 10am OR you may join us in person.

Messy Church at Ghent UMC
In-person Messy Church returned in May for people 2 – 92 years old! It was finally time to get messy together again with crafts, games, and activities in our garden, followed by Celebration time on the front steps.
Although COVID restrictions prevent us from serving a meal this time, consider packing a picnic and enjoying Stockley Gardens after Messy Church.
May’s theme was “Drop everything” based on Mark 1:16-20. You are unique and special to God. Do you believe he may call you to follow him in a new way?
What is Messy Church? Messy Church is “Church, but not as you know it.” It is Christ-centered, for all ages*, and based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. And it’s FREE!
*According to UMC Covid guidelines, only fully vaccinated people may remove their masks outdoors, EXCEPT WHILE SINGING, if safely socially distanced. Children under age 2 are not allowed to attend worship because masks are required. We look forward to welcoming our littlest ones, as soon as it is safe to do so. In addition to wearing masks, our guests are required to maintain safe social distances, and follow the CDC guidelines to stay home if sick or have been exposed.
