A sense of time, growth and seasons always becomes apparent at this time of year, when our thoughts turn to activities and events in the winter months.
Familiar faces, and taller children return to the various activities held at Church. It has been wonderful to greet people again after the summer and catch up with their news. This reminds me of the Church being like a family - welcoming people whom we see frequently, others we see occasionally, and perhaps new people into the family. I pray we find new ways of being family in our Church.
Looking forward, we have plans for a number of events where we can come together as a family. Firstly on Saturday 15th October, there is a walk (about 8 miles ) from the aqueduct in Trevor along the canal to Llangollen and back. We are walking in aid of our Church Charity (The Boaz Trust) and a donation towards this will be greatly received. All welcome, including dogs. Meet at 10am in the overflow car park near the aqueduct at Trevor.
This year we are also collecting items to make shoe boxes for The Boaz Trust. These will be in the free shop for their clients to receive them at Christmas time. We can put the following items into the boxes: chocolates, gloves, scarves, hats, jewellery, moisturisers (but not creams), and accessories (clients receive toiletries monthly). We will be meeting in November to put the boxes together.
The youth at Church would like to have a 'Stay Awake', so if you are a night owl and fancy helping at an event such as this, please speak to Andrea.
Due to the primary schools finishing late for Christmas this year, there will be a Holiday Club and Christingle on Thursday 5th January 2017. Time and details will follow. Details for Toddlers and Messy Mice activities are on Facebook: Tots and Frodsham Methodist Church.
Looking ahead to Summer 2017, some young people have already booked to go to Greenbelt! So, check out details on the Internet and see if you fancy going too. It would be great to have a big group going from Frodsham and Norley.
Andrea's contact number is 07749877823 if you need any more information on the above events.
