COMMUNION SERVICE

There will be a Short Circuit Communion Service on Wednesday 1st February, at 2pm.

The Service will be led by Rev John Boardman.

 

MEN'S FELLOWSHIP MEETING

It has been decided that there is going to be a Men's Fellowship Meeting

on Monday 6th February, at 7.30pm.

It is to be led by Stuart Williams.

The title of this meeting could be 'Unison Singing', as this would be quite simply

a male choir with no frills loud voices. 

We did a couple of hymns/songs last year, and it was very powerful.

 

MINUTES FROM THE PASTORAL VISITORS MEETING

A Pastoral Visitors meeting was held on Thursday 19th January.

Present: Rev. Susan Chambers and 8 members.  There were 4 apologies for absence.

We discussed the Pastoral List and had a discussion on the nature of Pastoral Care.

Pastoral Visitors will be commissioned on Palm Sunday (2nd April). 

If people cannot come to the service, David Lamle will record a CD for them on request.

The next Pastoral Visitors meeting will be held at church

on Thursday 6th July, at 7.30pm.

 

TITHING FUND

Each year this church gives 10% of its income to charitable causes.

This is divided 10 ways:  Methodist Church charities will benefit, 3 national charities will benefit and 3 local charities will benefit.  The final 10th is reserved for responding to any urgent appeals usually international disaster appeals.

It is time to review our giving again and we are seeking nomination of national and local charities which should benefit from that which we, as a church body, benefit from.

There are slips at the back of church to complete with your nominations. 

All nominations will be put to the vote before this year’s Annual General Meeting.

Thanks, Richard Melling.  Treasurer.

T4U GRIMSBY SHOEBOXES

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our campaign last year, it was very much appreciated.  At the Ice House we managed to pack and sort 9050 boxes last year.

2000 more than what they were hoping for.  We also made 160 boxes for the disabled

Ukrainian orphans who had travelled to Poland with nothing to call their own.

 

I have left the box outside the vestry for this year’s donations.

 

The list is still on there for ideas of what you can donate to go in it.

This year the leaders of the group are asking for your help in providing the following:

Pens, Pencils, colouring pencils, felt tips, crayons, pencil cases (These can be old video cases minus the videos they make perfect boxes),paper, exercise books, Christmas wrapping paper, plus soap, flannel and toothbrushes.

 

If you are able to help these are the things we most need to start 2023’s campaign.

Please see me for more details.  Thanks, Sue Burton.

 

DON’T FORGET

CD’s of the morning service are available for those who can't get there.
