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
Open Garden Success
Around 300 people visited the gardens in Whitacre. Saturday made £644.50 and Sunday raised nearly triple that amount raising £1780.50.
The grand total of £2425 will be split between Air Ambulance and our local Methodist Church.
Thanks are due to our gardeners, our cake makers, and stewards who all contributed to the grand result. We could not have asked for better weather.

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.
