Recently various individuals within Frodsham Methodist Church have expressed an interest in improving the quality of our Church's communal prayer life. To consider this an initial meeting has been arranged. It will take place on Wednesday 18th July at 7:30pm at Beacon Hurst off Tarvin Road in Frodsham.
Anyone interested in participating in this initiative please join us. Your input will be most welcome. Should you wish any further information or directions to the meeting's location please speak to Marion Greer or e-mail email@example.com.
Susie Treeton is pictured third from right.
What a happy afternoon we enjoyed! Residents of Chapel Fields Care Home for Older People, their family members, friends and staff joined together for a service of welcome to Susie Treeton and to mark her commissioning as M.H.A. Chaplain to Chapel Fields.
The service was led by Rev’d. Pat Christopher and the Chaplaincy Adviser for the West of England gave a short address. I think we will all remember his visual aid – a very small salt spoon. The purpose of a spoon is to stir, so here we had a mini – stir (minister - oh dear!!) which is what Susie has been called to be. She is obviously very much at home at Chapel Fields and already known and loved by the residents.
The service included prayers, familiar hymns and Bible readings reminding us that in serving others we are serving Christ. We ended on a rousing note singing the hymn ‘God is our strength and our refuge’ to the tune ‘The Dam Busters March’ after which we were all ready for a welcome cup of tea!
As part of the commissioning we said together:
Susie we welcome you!
May the Lord make you a blessing amongst us
and us a blessing to you,
as we work together for Christ.
I’m sure we can all say ‘Amen’ to that.
Presbyters from the local Methodist Church circuit, of which Frodsham Methodist Church is part, have begun holding monthly services of Holy Communion in the Care Home.

Sunday July 15th - 4.30 p.m. – 6.00 p.m. - ‘Meet the team’
Come and join us to meet our International team of 10 students from YWAM (Youth with a mission). The team, currently studying in Australia, will be joining us for around 10 days before going on to the Olympics in London. They’ll be at various church events and services. Come and meet them and hear their stories.
They’ll also be at 10.30 Church services on 15th & 22nd July
Just to remind you that there is no 0930 Live! this Sunday (8th July) - we have rescheduled to the following Sunday (15th July) so that we can share our final service before the summer break with Manor House Primary School and their friends visiting from Ghana.
The following weekend we have our annual weekend away. Camping space is still available for Friday and Saturday nights. Alternatively, you can and come and join us for a day. More details to follow..
As many of you will know, Rev'd. Pat Christopher is leaving us soon, as she is retiring, and her final service is 29th July at 4.30pm. It will be a Messy Church style service, and it would be lovely to see as many as possible to wish her well.
