Community & Environment Day in July – can you help?
On Saturday 18 July 2015 from 9.30am to 2.00pm, working in partnership with us at the church, two local landlords - Hundred Houses Society and City Homes (Cambridge City Council) - are holding a Community and Environment Day here at CMC. More details are available in the Chesterton News magazine. The church will be providing tea and coffee etc for the event – it would be great to have some volunteers to help for all or part of the day.

Dates for your diary …
On Sunday 6th September there will be a welcome service for the new ministers at Wesley Church at 6.30pm. It would be great to see some Chesterton people there.

Our Harvest Festival service this year will be held on Sunday 20th September. If anyone has ideas or suggestions about what we do and how we celebrate this please let Ian or Rosemary know.

On Sunday 15th November we will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the present buildings (excluding the chapel which was added later). A special service is planned for 4pm that day with a tea afterwards and we will invite people from other local churches and groups to join us. Work is also underway to produce a simple history of Methodist involvement in Chesterton which goes back at least 150 years.
