Bible Lectionary - Read at Home
If you want to follow the readings for each Sunday follow this link to see the Methodist Lectionary. This shows the suggested readings and Psalms for each Sunday.
Christmas and the festive period is creeping over the horizon and the chapel are busy preparing a Nativity Extravaganza. More details to follow once the post lockdown rules are known but the chracters are already being created for the display which will be set up at the start of December.
We could not miss the opportunity to remind you of Jesus coming and the fact that we shall not be able to have our usual candlelit carols and other services. Do look out how you join in celebrating Christs birth.
Despite the Covid restrictions we are delighted to announce that 22 boxes and over £75 has been donated to the Shoe Box appeal this year and with luck will be delivered this week before the new restrictions take force.
Thank you to all who have taken the trouble to complete a donation showing that these things can still be achieved no matter what.
Rev Derek Shaw
Sadly the Rev. Derek Shaw died on Wednesday night of October 21st, in the Marie Curie hospice at Solihull. He was our minister from 2009 until 2012 but despite being retired, he continued to serve us by organising Bible Studies, services and supporting events like the coffee mornings and concerts.
Those who knew him will not forget easily his gentle concern for others.
A collection for Marie Curie raised £200 but we shall miss him taking our Christmas Carol service.
Please pray for all those in our congregation but especially remember those on our prayer list here.
You can also join others in this prayer list suggestion relating to Covid situation

They will send them to the women homeworkers in the Philippines.....so bring your ring pulls from drinks cans only please, to the collecting container which is back in the chapel kitchen.
