Last weekend 10 people walked along the canal to Llangollen and back, walking nearly 9 and a half miles. It was prefect weather and we all enjoyed ourselves; what a special time of fellowship. Over £150 was raised for the Boaz Trust, our Church Charity 2016. Thank you to all who gave and took part in the walk. Perhaps we can walk to Chirk next time?
The Boaz Trust work with destitute asylum seekers. More information can be found about them here.
A few photos from our latest Church Walk along the lovely River Weaver. Do join us next time for exercise, friendship and a chat along the way.
What a wonderful Service of Welcome for Rev'd. Andrew Emison and his family last night.
We were delighted to be joined in a packed Church by:- the Mayor of Frodsham, Cllr. Mallie Poulton; representatives from the other churches in Frodsham, Fr. James Kenny of St. Luke Roman Catholic Church, Fr. Michael Mills of St. Laurence Church of England Parish Church, Rev'd. Mansell Morgan of King's Church, and Mrs. Sue Spilman of Main Street Community Church; Mrs. Aelison Wilson of Frodsham Churches Together; and, Suzie Treeton of Chapel Fields MHA Nursing & Dementia Care Home, Frodsham.
We were also pleased to welcome Rev'd. Neil Stacey, Superintendent of the Chester & Delamere Forest Circuit of the Methodist Church, and Rev'd. Peter Barber, Chair of the Chester & Stoke-on-Trent District of the Methodist Church.
A few photos from a lovely walk in the sunshine on Saturday. Why not join us for our next one on 10th September? We meet at 2pm in the Church car park walk for a couple of hours and then come back to Church for tea and cake. Everyone is welcome.
Ladies Group Afternoon Tea on Monday saw lots of scones and strawberries and cakes consumed, all washed down with cups of tea, and, most importantly, over £600 raised for OPAL, the older people's charity. A good afternoon of fellowship and fundraising. Thank you, Lord!
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.
A few photos from a great afternoon - bouncy castle, activities, food and fun - and a visit from the ice cream van! We praise God for the joy of friendships and relationships.
Monday 13th February saw the 55th Anniversary of the Frodsham Methodist Church Ladies Group, who meet on alternate Mondays. The group can trace it’s history back to Trinity Methodist Church in High Street, where it commenced all those years ago as ‘Trinity Young Wives’! When Trinity Church closed meetings were held in the Wellspring Centre in Church Street, later meeting at Main Street Chapel before moving on to what is now known as Frodsham Methodist Church in Kingsley Road.
Meetings were held in the evenings every fortnight until late 2015 when it was decided to implement the first major change in over 50 years by starting at 2.00pm in the afternoon. Membership is running at over 30 who meet to enjoy fellowship, friendship and entertainment. Speakers are often arranged covering a wide range of topics, meals out and theatre visits also fill the programme, but Monday saw a sumptuous celebration party with our friends from Helsby Methodist Church and St. Luke's R.C. Church, Frodsham, to celebrate this momentous occasion.
We would like to thank ‘Cheshire Forest Singing Circle (pictured all in blue) who entertained us wonderfully with a selection ‘Songs from the Shows’.
We hope that the group will be as strong as ever in the next 50 years, new members are always sure of a warm welcome. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
