Rev. Murray George is now established as our new minister. We look forward to him settling into our ways, ready to improve them.
David’s last service as Minister / Interim Moderator was a cafe-style service at which he encouraged us to be followers of the Way rather than merely church-goers. We shall not lose touch with him as he has already accepted bookings to come back and take three more services!
Sharon Mayer of the Agricultural Chaplaincy led our Service about the Harvest and Giving. It was a really good service so we are pleased to invite her back in March. There was a lovely display of harvest goods from the church, from guests and from the church’s neighbours. Most of it went to the Salvation Army for their Food Bank.
Jen is not well, to the concern of all of us, and Derek seems to have long periods of illness. Jean had a good holiday at the Channel Isles and Evelyn will enjoy hers later this month.
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.
Our Coffee Morning at Nantwich was appreciated by many customers. Most of the tombola prizes were won and many cakes were bought.
The chimney for the central heating boiler had to be demolished so now we cannot use the boiler. Fortunately we have electric heaters which will suffice until the situation is resolved, hopefully before the really cold weather comes.
We have made space for push-chairs, zimmer-frames and wheel-chairs in church.
In April our services will start at 6.00 rather than the 6.30 we’ve had for many years. This is to avoid the dusk as we drive home again.
