We collect stamps for the Leprosy Mission. It is hard to believe that a bunch of used stamps can help transform the life of someone affected by leprosy. But the fact is that it can! Over the past 30 years the Leprosy Mission has raised more than £1 million to benefit people affected by leprosy. Find out more here

May will see Easter come and and gone and summer round the corner! We will be raising money for our own Chapel this month especially as we look forward to celebrating 200 years of Methodism in the village.

Saturday April 27th. at 2.30pm
Why don’t you bring your children along, ( or they could bring you!) to join us in the Methodist Hall. We would love you to help celebrate Easter and Spring time. Enjoy coming to make, stick, stitch, colour and bake crafty articles to take home. As usual there will be food and drink for everyone.
If the weather is kind we hope to end with a modest hunt for Easter Eggs.
Bring us your ring pulls as these are sent to people in the Philippines to be made into jewellery. We have already sent one batch off and have decided to continue to collect ring pulls as they are worth 3p each to the Purple Community Fund. 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.

1820 - 2020 Help us celebrate the Bi-Centenary of Whitacre Chapel
Whitacre Methodist Church was founded and opened in 1820 on a site in Birmingham Road moving to the current building in Station Road which was completed in 1914.
Plans are now being developed to celebrate this massive achievement over the year since the first paperwork mentioning the chapel in late 1819 through to its opening in 1820. A short history book is being written and preachers are already being booked to make what promises to be a big year. Some will remember that we celebrated the actual centenary in style over a big weekend in February which coincided with the actual opening day on 7th Feb 1914. We are now looking forward to an even bigger series of events throughout the bicentenary year of Methodism in Whitacre in 2020.
