As usual we will be supporting a number of charities over the Christmas period.
Our sock tree will go up on Sunday December 2nd to receive your gifts of new socks for men, women and children. Also under the tree we will collect hats, gloves and scarves. These will be given to Chester Aid to the Homeless, and to Warrington Salvation Army for their work in support of victims of human trafficking.
Our collection at the Carols by Candlelight service will be for Action for Children (formerly NCH), a Methodist - founded charity supporting disadvantaged children across the UK. Gift Aid envelopes will be available. If you are a taxpayer please use this to increase the value of your gift by 25%.
Our gifts on Christmas Day will go to Christian Aid. Their campaign this year is in support of those offering help in war-torn communities. Again, Gift Aid envelopes will be available.
In our Sunday morning worship over the next few weeks we will be looking at ways in which we can grow, learn and be disciples together. These themes will be taken from a book called Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations by Robert C. Schnase. New and second hand copies are available to buy on Amazon.
Good to be joined by those from the other churches in Frodsham for our annual New Year's Eve Ecumenical Service today.
A very Happy and Blessed Christmas from all at Frodsham Methodist Church.

A few pictures from our Harvest of Talents this year--celebrating just some of the talents we have in our Church and community as well as many of the small businesses so vital to our community.
The stone has been rolled away, the Easter flowers have been arranged, join us for worship at 10am and 6pm. Happy Easter.
Today is Good Friday. You could join Christians in Frodsham for a Walk of Witness through the town starting at Main Street Community Church at 9.45am. Or if you are in Chester, Chester Mystery Plays' Way of the Cross will pass through the streets leaving Eastgate Street clock at 10.30am (more details here).
If you cannot make it to either of these events, do take some time to read scripture (John 18.1 - 19.42) and to remember what happened that first Good Friday before we rush on to Easter Sunday.
