Hanwell Methodist Church
Composed, designed and published by Ray Garnett

The list of Sunday services and calendar of
preachers for each of the churches within our
Circuit is published quarterly in our Circuit
In-touch. Copies are normally
available from the shelves at the back of our

There are occasions when preachers may
change, but at the time of going to press the
following appointments for Hanwell were listed in the magazine. The Circuit plan is produced by our Circuit Superintendent Minister and issued by our Circuit office.

If it is a service of Holy Communion and you wish to receive a blessing from the Minister but you do not wish to receive Holy Communion, you are welcome to go the Communion rail with the other members of the congregation - Communion Stewards will direct members of the congregation to the rail in an orderly fashion. When the Minister brings the Communion, please keep your hands by your sides to indicate that you want to receive a blessing from the Minister and not the Bread and Wine of Holy Communion.  If you wish to receive Communion in your seat then please let one of our Communion Stewards know.  The presiding Minister will then serve you after those attending at the Communion rail.
