News from Slingsby Methodist Church

 Methodist Chapel

Here’s a roundup from Stephen Prest of the latest news, together with some dates for your diary.


CAROL SINGING: The evening of carol singing at The Grapes Inn was a great success once again.  In fact there were more people there than ever, the pub was packed to the door with everyone having a great time.  Mike Smith & Geoff Bishop led the evening with music by Audrey Foster and Karen Bishop.  Thanks to The Grapes Inn for the mince pies and mulled wine. Before going to The Grapes we went carol singing round The Green, Green Crescent and Railway Street. We have already booked the next one on Tuesday 16th December.  Put it in your diaries NOW!

The Carol Service was organised by Louise Hayes and Audrey Foster and was a more contemporary look at the Christmas story.  The carol singing went very well led by The Music group and Liz Marshall on the organ.  It was a great celebration of Christmas enjoyed by a good congregation, afterwards we all enjoyed spiced apple juice and mince pies.


Malton & Norton Lions continue to bring fish & chips into the village on the second Tuesday of the month.  Numbers requesting them continue to grow and everyone seems very pleased with how good they are.  The cost of £2-50 for fish, chips & peas is excellent value.  Contact Stephen Prest on 01653-628277 if you want to be included.

For the December delivery we gave people the option to have the fish & chips together in the Methodist Schoolroom and several people did this and we had a a lovely time together.  Trudy & Susan Carr helped with this and also provided puddings.  After we had eaten we had some carol singing led by Alwyn and Doreen Jeffels.  Thanks to all who helped.

Little Adventurers, Adventure Club and YAZ  (Youth Adventure Zone), The Womens Fellowship and Wednesday fellowship Group all continue to meet and we offer a warm invitation to all to join us.  Details in the Dec 2013 issue of your Triangle newsletter. Note The Womens Fellowship Group now meets at Freda Wares’s home. Contact Freda for more information.


Adventure Club caters for children aged 4 – 11 years of age.  This is a special year because it will have been running for 40 years this spring.  Its purpose is to teach our children the Christian Faith and give guidance in how we should live and relate to each other and to God.  This is done through Bible stories, singing, drama and teaching.  It is also a time for fun and games and creating new friendships. It is expertly led by Louise Hayes, Rachel Prest and Becky Ward .  All children are welcome.


Every so often we organise a group Sunday Lunch either at The Chapel or elsewhere which is particularly good for those who live alone and we all enjoy a good meal and a chat together.  The next one will be at The Grapes Inn at Slingsby on Sunday 16th March.  If you would like to join us contact Stephen Prest on 01653-628277.
