Jeremiah implores us: "seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you.....and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare". Although it might be a stretch to think of Frodsham as a city, nevertheless all of us around our circuit want to communicate the sense that although our buildings are closed, our church fellowships continue to pray for our communities.
Members of Frodsham Methodist Church have hung bunting that celebrates God's presence and each flag carries a prayer for people in our community who are leading or serving at this time.
Below are just a few of the flags, but do take a closer look when out for your daily walk.
“Life Together” will be taking place from Wednesday 12th February to Sunday 16th February.
Andrew Emison is looking for volunteers to cook and be present during the sessions. Please help if you can. If you are not able to help in this way, please pray for our young people as they share in discipleship in this way.
Please note that Frodsham Methodist Church's car park will be closed today, Monday 31st December 2018 and tomorrow, Tuesday 1st January 2019. For any queries, please e-mail email@example.com.
The stone has been rolled away, the Easter flowers have been arranged, join us for worship at 10am and 6pm. Happy Easter.

The Leadership Team
People from a variety of Christian denominations, from Merseyside, Manchester, Altrincham, Stoke-on-Trent and across the Cheshire plain came to Frodsham Methodist Church on Saturday 29th March.
Why? because of their concerns about human trafficking in the U.K. and internationally. In a full day’s forum, a range of speakers explained the facts about what human trafficking is, what is being done to stop it and how to support victims.
Major Anne Read from the Salvation Army Headquarters and their National Anti-Trafficking Response Co-ordinator led the day. Anne was supported by her colleague Major Gladys Ljungholm from the North Western Division. Other speakers included the local M.P. Graham Evans and Hannah Flint from International Justice Mission. Discussion in the afternoon was chaired by Frodsham Methodist Church’s minister, Rev’d. Denise Harding.
The Forum, supported by Frodsham and Cheshire Churches Together, sought to inform individuals and encourage them to discuss and identify positive forms of action. The Forum was an opportunity for concerned individuals to identify how the Church and other organisations could respond to this issue in a modern world. If you are concerned that someone may have been trafficked, telephone Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111 or The Salvation Army on 0300 3038151. For further information on the Forum e-mail enquiries to: email@example.com.
Human trafficking is trade in human beings – most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labour or commercial sexual exploitation. Another motive behind the trade is the extraction of organs or tissues.
Human trafficking is condemned as a violation of human rights by international conventions.
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!
