Frodsham Churches Together is planning to pray for our town continuously for 48 hours between 7pm on Wednesday 17th May and 7pm on Friday 19th May.
Our base will be right at the centre of our town in the function room behind the Bear’s Paw. We are all invited to take part by offering 1 hour slots during that time, including overnight. During this time we are asked to attend at the Function Room. Resources will be available to help you in your time of prayer. Praying for our town means praying for its needs and to find out what those are, we have produced “Prayer Request Cards” which are available in the Church Foyer.
If you belong to or have connections with our town’s organisations or businesses, please take one of these cards. If offering prayer feels difficult, just try asking what are the biggest concerns for our town and ask permission to pray on their behalf.
It would be good if Frodsham Methodist Church is well represented during the 48 hours so if you can offer a slot, please e-mail Rev'd. Andrew Emison on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don’t have e-mail, please contact Andrea Ellams.
Just a few pictures from our Christmas Tree Festival 2016 to keep everyone in the festive spirit. What a wonderful event and so good to see so many people there.
A big thank you to the very many people who helped to make the Christmas Tree Festival such a success. Particular thanks to Jean and her team of ladies in the kitchen who worked so hard in keeping up with the demand for turkey barms, Beryl and Maureen for organising and running the raffle, Andrea for organising the children's activities and Rob and Roger for organising the electrics. Hundreds of people visited the church over the weekend, and there were lots of lovely comments. We raised over £1200 which will be divided between church funds and the Boaz Trust. Thanks, Carolyn.
Members of our Church were delighted to be able to give a 'host’ of knitted angels to the Runcorn and District Food Bank, who have been collecting them from far and wide.
They said, “On 11th December the angels will be released around the town. We hope that they make a real impact and cheer people’s Monday morning, putting a smile on their faces, giving them an angel to take away with them and reminding them of the true message of Christmas. Each angel has a label attached with Christmas Greetings from Runcorn Foodbank. The label also invites the finder to take the angel home and we have added the Keep Britain Tidy logo as we are eager not to be guilty of littering. Indeed a week or so after the release we will retread our steps and remove any abandoned angels, although we hope that there will not be any.”
Frodsham Methodist Church were delighted yesterday, Sunday 12th June 2016, to host visitors at all three worship services. At 0930live! we were joined by visitors from Manor House Primary School and guests from Ghana. At 10.45 we welcomed our Superintendent Minister, Rev'd. Neil Stacey, who preached and celebrated Holy Communion.
And at 6pm there was a Circuit Service attended by Methodists from all over Chester and this part of Cheshire where we celebrated the work of MHA (housing and care charity for older people) and launched the Circuit Project for 2016 to 2018. The project, which will run from June 2016 to January 2017, aims to raise funds and awareness for Cheshire Search and Rescue. We thank God for these expressions of his love in connections with community, country and internationally.
Central heating was not needed at Frodsham Methodist Church tonight as over 200 people filled the Church for the annual Singalong at Christmas with Equinox hosted by Frodsham and Helsby Rotary Club. Over £1,500 was raised, which will be split between Frodsham Methodist Church and Rotary charities.
