SLINGSBY METHODIST CHURCH NEWS – November
Our Harvest festival took a suprise turn this year due to the illness of Rev Jacky Hale who was supposed to take it. We decided to organise it amongst ourselves with Rachel Prest giving the lead and “The Worship Group” leading much of the singing. There was an appearance of the “Shy Spies”, (Geoff & Styephen). Many others took part and Will Jeffels organised the powerpoint presentation. It was a very happy service with lots of laughter and this was followed by an excellent “Harvest Lunch” in the schoolroom.
We have had our annual shoebox event with over 30 shoeboxes filled with all sorts of children’s toys and gifts. These have been sent to very underprivileged children either in Eastern Europe or Africa. A special service to dedicate these gifts was held on 2nd November led by Margot Taylor.
We are holding a “Candlelit Christmas Praise” for all the family on Sunday 14th December at 4pm at The Methodist Church. The service will be followed by a “Party Tea.” Please bring your families along.
Carol Singing on Tuesday 16th December… Meet at The Methodist Church at 6pm to sing round part of the village and then at 7pm we shall be singing in The Grapes Inn. Do come and join us. Sunday 21st December we are uniting with our Anglican friends for a United Village carol service at the Parish Church at 6pm.
