Goods not sold went to the following causes, The Salvation Army shop in Warrington, Chester Homeless Project, The Food Bank / TSB to sell the books, also Table sales for the following, Salvation Army Trafficked Victims Fund, Christian Aid at the Parish Hall, and the Building Fund at St Laurence's Parish Church.
the connexion is a new print magazine for Methodist people.
The first issue brings you news of people and projects in these islands as well as North Korea and Sri Lanka, showing how vibrant Methodism can be. It has a primary theme of evangelism (the 'e-word') and ways that Methodists can refocus on an area that many find problematic.
A range of Methodist office holders will soon be receiving three copies in the post (if they come through the letterbox already), with a request to pass two of these on. If you don’t get a copy, look out for someone who did!
The magazine has been produced in response to calls from many Methodists for improved communications and more news about what is happening across the Connexion.
Two more issues will be published in 2015 -issue two in April and issue three in September.
You can download a pdf of the magazine by visiting the Methodist Church website.

Information about the film:
THE WAY is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (played by Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage "The Way of St. James" to honour his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him. Through unexpected and often amusing experiences along "The Way," Tom discovers the difference between "the life we live and the life we choose.” The story is based on the well known Camino de Santiago pilgrimage.
