Our Church Council meeting which was to have have taken place on 5th September will now take place on 26th September at 8pm in the Benson Room. Our Superintendent Minister Pete Moorhouse will be in the chair.

Under the 'Small Church' rule, all our members are entitled to be full members of the Council. Sue has sent a letter asking members to confirm whether or not they wish to participate in the Council. If you haven't had yours, see Sue Edwards ASAP.

We welcome our new Pastor Steve Mayo, his wife Dani and daughters Shannon,  Megan and Ellie to the area - they are living in Rochford.

We also welcome Matthew Cook, who 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.

Our House group restarts on 20th September at 8pm at the Rayner's. From October it returns to the last Wednesday of the month.

Weekly notices are now being produced again following the break during August and you can also see our Facebook Group to keep up to date with what's going on.

The next Over 60s' Tuesday Lunch Club takes place on 10 October.

You need to book a place in advance for the meal (so we get the catering right) or if you want a lift, so contact Margaret on 544252 soon. 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 has paused until October 3rd but is usually available every Wednesday morning 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 drop in when you want.

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.

Fund raising:

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.
