A slightly belated Happy New Year!
It’s good to be starting a new year, and for me it’s good to be back amongst you all. I’ve missed you very much. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, cards and cakes!
We (Frodsham Methodist Church Leadership Team) are hoping to look at things with fresh eyes with your help this year. You will have seen by now questionnaires that are being handed out to everyone who is connected to the church through attendance of some form or another. Or you may be more technologically able and filling in the questionnaire online on Survey Monkey. The manner of your participating is not important – but your participation is. We want to try to plan for the future. We want to see what God is saying to us as His family of Methodists in Frodsham about priorities for the next year, and three years, and five years...
You might think it doesn’t matter, or you’re happy with how things are. Well, please tell us that. You might want some things to be different, or for us to do something new – so please tell us that too.
My one request to you each is this – whatever you write, whatever box you tick, whatever comment you formulate – please do it from careful and most importantly, prayerful reflection. The Leadership of the church will be listening to your voices – and through you to the voice of God. So, please will you help us to complete this piece of work – so that we might be ready and able to serve God now, but also in the future. And when the responses come in, by the middle of February, please look out for the Church meeting where it will all be presented and discussed – you are part of the life of the church and we want you - I want you - to be part of shaping the future under God’s care and wisdom.
Thank you, and God bless you,
Reverend Denise Harding
