Circuit Service
From time to time our Methodist Circuit joins together for evening worship. The next circuit service is on Sunday 24th April at Toft Methodist Church. Everyone is invited – the theme is ‘pilgrims on a journey’. Service starts at 6.30pm, refreshments from 5.30pm.

Church Review Day
On Saturday 14th May we have a special event for all the adults in the church. Rev’d Alison Walker will lead us in exploring what it means to be a church and we will look together at our mission statement and think about some priorities for the next year or two.
Please see if you can be free to be part of this – we will start mid-morning, share lunch and finish mid-afternoon. Full details will be available in mid-April.

Ideas needed for Christian Aid Week
Last month there was a notice reminding everyone that last year the church raised just over £200 for Christian Aid Week.  (We held a special Sunday service with afternoon tea organised by Girls Brigade.) This year Christian Aid Week runs from 15 – 21 May and it would be great to have some different ideas for raising money again. Please do share your ideas!

Thursday Fellowship
The next meeting will be on 21st April at 2.30pm and everyone is welcome. Rev’d Alison Walker will be the speaker and she will share something of her time as a mission partner in Italy. Ask Rosemary Tice for more details.
