Slingsby Methodist Church News: September 2014

Some news from Slingsby Methodist Church:-

This year we are having a United Harvest Festival with the Parish Church. It will be held on Sunday 28th September at 10-30am at The Methodist Church. We are organising the service amongst ourselves with lots of local participation!
After the service we are going to have a Harvest Lunch in the Methodist Schoolroom. All are very welcome.

We are having our “Shoebox” appeal again this year at Slingsby. As you will remember gifts of toys and suitable items are packed into shoeboxes and sent to parts of Africa and eastern Europe.
They are always very much appreciated by children many of whom would otherwise get nothing at Christmastime. Leaflets about the shoebox appeal can be obtained from the “Farm Shop” or from Rachel Prest. A service to dedicate the shoeboxes will be held at Slingsby Methodosit Church on Sunday November 2nd at 10-30am. The service will be led by Margot Taylor.

We are having a Carol Singing night on Tuesday 16th December. We will finish up at The Grapes for 7pm. All are welcome.
