Our newshounds report:
Steve Mayo will be joining us during the month as Pastor to lead Rochford Methodist Church. The first service he will lead with us will be on 3rd September.
We welcome Steve and his wife Dani to the area - he will be living in the Rochford area. More details later.
The Circuit Welcome Service for Steve and the other ministers (including Matthew Cook) joining our Circuit takes place on 5th September at Rayleigh Methodist Church at 7.30pm and everybody is welcome to come and celebrate with us.
Matthew is the youth worker appointed to the Hub, to work with Simon Ford. The appointment is for one year and is being financed by the Methodist Church of Great Britain's 'One Programme' scheme.
The work to replace the flat roof and rooflights is finished! Everything is light and airy - and, more importantly, DRY!
The work parties during August have painted the outside of the church window frames re-varnished the front doors. The trouble is that the work has shown-up other areas - anyone for indoor painting?!
The next 'Over 60s' Tuesday Lunch Club takes place on 12 September.
You need to book a place in advance for the meal (so we get the catering right) or if you want a lift. The cost of the meal will be £3. If you are UNDER 60 but want to accompany someone who is over 60 then you are welcome to come along with them.
A handbill is available at the Hub advertising the Club.
A reminder that Sacred Space is available on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30. It is a chance to just sit still and think, or pray, or just step aside from the world for a bit. No booking is needed, just come in and sit down. Come when you want and stay as long as you need (but please do remember the 'finish' time).
If you want prayers said for yourself or others, just write it on a slip of paper and drop it in the prayer box in the lobby. These prayer requests will be read out during the morning for everyone to think and pray about
Nobody will pressure you, but if you do want someone to pray with, or for, you then all you have to do is ask. Prayers can be said for physical o.r spiritual healing, if wanted. Tea and coffee will also be available if you want it but, again, just ask.
No weekly notices are being produced during August but see our Facebook Group to keep up to date.
The notices for 30 July can be found here
We will be holding a Beetle Drive on 10th October as part of our church fund raising. If you've never been to one, you've never seen how excited someone can get when all they want is a final leg!
We are still open to ideas for other fund-raising ideas, especially if you have the idea and carry it through. If you do have an idea, please run it past the Stewards and you will have all the support we can provide. We are especially interested in activities that can involve people from outside our church membership.
'Off menu' items of interest relating to the administration of the church exist on this website. If you want/need access to them, contact Dave who will give you the necessary details.

As usual, all services, activities and meetings are open to everybody, whether or not a member of our, or any, church.
