I was at District Synod yesterday and the Methodist Church is asking each church to review what they do and focus on what their Christian presence means in their communities. I feel excited about the future and the new ideas being prayed and thought about at our Church at this time. May we listen, and may God guide our ideas, and inspire us to share the love he has for each of us with one another.
Messy Mice has started again after the summer holiday on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month and, as we have said goodbye to the children who have started school/pre-school, we welcomed new children and babies in September.
Messy Church is on the 3rd Friday of each month from 5-7pm. The next one is 18th October, then 15th November. On 13th December from 5-7pm it is our Messy Christingle.
Our new group for the 20’s to 40’s age range is starting on the last Monday of each month. Meeting for the first time at the Manse at 8pm in October. We need to think up a name for the group yet but the idea is to have a time for people to get to know each other better and to spend a short time thinking about a Christian topic. We are hopefully running the group during the day once a month for those who find the evening difficult. Watch this space!
Pippa and I are pleased to be continuing our time in both The Manor and Weaver Vale primary schools and thank the heads and staff for their support. My prayer is that God works with and through us to bring the right message to the children and staff in the coming weeks.
Toddlers are holding a Children’s Toy and Clothes Good as New Sale on Saturday 5th October in aid of the Women’s Maternity Hospital in Liverpool. One of the children who comes to Toddlers was born at 24 weeks and the hospital looked after him and his parents until he was ready to come home. If you need more information about selling items please ring or text Andrea on 07749877823.
Advance notice ... There is to be a Christmas Holiday Club on Monday 23rd December from 10-3pm at Frodsham Methodist Church. More details to follow.
As ever the activities we run at Church cannot happen without a team of people involved and I thank all who already help. Please, if you have time and would like to help at any event, come and speak to me. The tasks are varied and the more people involved the better the event.
