REST IN PEACE
Clarice Hartell died on 4 September, aged 101. She was a regular member of the congregation from its early days, a faithful attender at services and events, a generous supporter and a loving friend to us all.
Jim Taylor died on 6 September, aged 95. Our chief Methodist Steward for many years, he welcomed everybody to services, was completely reliable and committed and a real mainstay of our church’s life. His wife Freda is still a member of our church.
We miss both these dear friends and it was lovely to have wonderful services of thanksgiving for them in church. Our prayers are with their families and friends.
30 MILE WALK
As reported last time, this was a great success. It raised nearly £1500. Well done everybody.
BRING AND SHARE LUNCH
As Avon had double booked herself, this wasn’t the scheduled silver wedding celebration; this was simply a summer lunch at which we all enjoyed each other’s company and food on 20 August.
This was much enjoyed; grateful thanks to Joyce, Joan, Su, Carol, Ruth and Eddy. £190 was raised.
Our harvest festival raised £75 for Queenscourt.
I am still hoping to hold a bible study at church in either an afternoon and/or evening; but I do need people to express an interest. Please speak to me about it. Alex.
KNIT AND NATTER
This group meets every Tuesday at 10.30; there is a lot of knitting and nattering over coffee and biscuits. Please come along and bring someone else.
COFFEE MORNING NOW COFFEE AND LUNCH
On the second Friday in the month, this will now begin at 11am and will include a light lunch as well; so, come with a bit more money and prepared to spend a little longer, enjoying fellowship together; please bring along family, friends and neighbours and make it a real time of invitation to our church. No religious input, just friendship, food and chat. Organized by Su Foster, it has already provided great fellowship and donations to church.
Don’t forget to have a word with Su O’Neil if you would like to use our memorial book to commemorate a loved one who has died.
This very important event is on Saturday 25 November from 12 till 3. There are posters available to take out and display wherever you can.
* assorted bottles eg shampoo, sauce, soft drinks in large or small size bottles, wine -
* Raffle prizes -
Please come and help on the day and spread the word among family, friends and neighbours, so that we have a good crowd in. There will be games for children and lots of stalls, as well as refreshments; and Father Christmas will be there too.
This will be at the Thatch and Thistle on 10 December. Please sign the list at the back and choose your food.
This will be on Sunday 17 December at 4PM; it is a great service to invite family, friends and neighbours to share with us in the familiar carols and the wonderful story of the birth of Jesus.
CHRISTMAS SERVICES will be as usual on Christmas Eve at 11PM and Christmas morning at 9AM.
EATING TOGETHER AGAIN
As the Harvest Supper at Allen and Margaret Webb’s house had to be postponed a new get together has been arranged for December 30th. A poster with times will appear in church soon
The stall invented by Hazel and supplied by many others continues to bring in money and provide a place to buy and sell for church funds.
