Here’s the latest Methodist Church news from Stephen Prest:
Our Christmas events all went very well. The Christmas Praise at the Chapel was well attended and was a real family event with a very good tea afterwards. The United Carol service at The Parish Church was excellent and we were all so grateful for the singing by the children from Slingsby Primary School led by headmistress Georgie Metcalfe. It was good to see the Church so full.
The night of carol singing round part of the village and at The Grapes Inn went very well with a good crowd in The Grapes. A collection was made for the Ebola Crisis in West Africa.
The Slingsby Friday Club is going very well with over 20 children attending. The Womens Fellowship meets once a month on Tuesday afternoons and the Wednesday Fellowship Group meets fortnightly on Wednesday evenings at 7-30pm. We are just beginning a new series called “9-a-day, becoming like Jesus.” It is based on the fruits of the Spirit as told by Paul in Galatians Ch. 5, v’s 22-25.
It will soon get round to Easter and on Palm Sunday the 29th March we are planning a short Palm Sunday procession round The Green in Slingsby. We would really like a donkey so if anyone knows of one not too far away please let us know. Contact Stephen Prest on 01653-628277. On Easter Sunday 5th April we will have an Easter Breakfast at 9am followed by a service at 10-30am.
29th March: Palm Sunday procession starting from The Methodist Church at 10-30am
