Warmest Congratulations to Mrs Win Edwards who celebrated her 90th birthday on Saturday 16th February, 2013. Win is pictured on her special day with Rev'd. Denise Harding and friends Lilian Grundy and Doris Cairns.
Win spent the afternoon celebrating with her family, followed by a party tea with friends and relatives.
Yesterday afternoon, Frodsham Methodist Church Hall was full with over eighty people of all ages enjoying pancakes, in some cases a lot of pancakes! Over 20 pints of milk were used to make all the pancake batter required. All the usual toppings were available ranging from the traditional lemon juice and sugar to bananas and cream and maple syrup and chocolate sauce.
It was wonderful to see so many people making full use of the building with lots of families in the Church Hall, pool and table tennis tables in use, football games outside and teenagers jamming in Church.
Well done to everyone in the kitchen who churned out the hundreds of pancakes!

On Saturday 2nd February, a small group headed down to Swan Bank Methodist Mission in Burslem for a Children & Youth Conference entitled ‘Unite’. The day consisted of three sessions, with a variety of options to choose from ranging from ‘bongo madness’ to a workshop on the ethical use of social media and a sport workshop to a session on leading worship. This was followed by a fabulous meal shared together. The evening saw performances by two Christian bands and a short talk by the Rev’d. Ashley Cooper, the senior pastor (who was formerly at Helsby Methodist Church).
All in all there were over 160 young people in attendance and it was enriching to see so many gathered together to share, learn and grow in faith. Below are the comments made by those from our Church who attended.
I enjoyed this trip loads. The drumming lesson was fantastic, and I greatly enjoyed the games in the sports hall. I also liked the social lesson, where we watched lots of funny clips. Also, the food there was great and very filling! I especially enjoyed the singing and being part of it.
This trip was amazing! I loved playing the fun games and activities. We made some cool foam fish and had a lovely dinner.
I loved the activities that went on at Swan Bank. Emma and me were doing sports and made foam fish in the craft room.
I really liked this trip. All three activities I did were really fun and interesting. I did bongo drumming, sports and a social media lesson. I also really enjoyed the bands at the end.
I enjoyed the workshops, especially the sports one because it was fun. The bands were really good and Ash was really funny and he used to live in Helsby!
