Jacky Embrey, the Synod Moderator, will join us as we welcome Murray George, our new minister, for his first service at 2.30 on 17th September. We thank Murray not only for taking us on but also for relieving David Spence after so many years as a wonderful Interim Moderator. Murray already has years of experience with rural churches and farming so we look forward to receiving from him.
David’s last service as Minister / Interim Moderator will be a cafe-style service at 11.30 on 13th September. It is not farewell, though, as he has already accepted bookings to come back and take three more services!
We all thoroughly enjoyed hearing about Mary Magdalene on 16th July as performed by the Union St. Baptist Church Choir (Augmented).
Jen has now settled in her apartment near Jean. From her description, it sounds a lovely place and we look forward to visiting her some time. She enjoys the company and activities; if only her leg would get better she’d enjoy them more.
We continue to lead worship at the Elms Care Home bi-monthly, much to the delight of many of the residents. They sing away at the songs they know and enjoy reminiscing with us after the service.
We are preparing to run a Coffee Morning at Nantwich on 26th August. It is great to work together with one aim.
Elizabeth and Peter celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary on 19th August. What an achievement for two so young! Congratulations from the whole church and we look forward to celebrating your Diamond with you.
