Church with coffee and cake
Not too good to be true! On the first Monday of every month we join with friends from Churches Together to enjoy a relaxed time at Costa Coffee in Mere Green, with music, coffee, chat and friendship. Give it a try! More details on this link. It's a great opportunity to make new friends in a relaxed atmosphere.
With the first Monday in May being a bank holiday, the next cafechurch at Costa is on Monday 13 May and will be on the subject of Healthy Living (though don't let that stop you have a cake!) Why not come along between 7.30 and 9.00 pm to meet, discuss and make some new friends over coffee.
Around once a quarter, we have a cafe-style service in our church too, a service in a relaxed and conversational style, enlivened by music, cake, coffee and tea. We are having a service like this on 28 July, which we will be sharing with friends from Streetly and Blackwood churches.
Messy Church is aimed at families with children around age 5-10. Yes, it IS a bit messy - there are family crafts to try out, but there is also a time of worship and afternoon tea together. With increasing demand Messy Church now runs monthly and the April event is on Saturday 18 May 3.00-5.00 pm.
Straight after the morning service on Sunday 2 June we will adjourn to the lawn. By then the experienced runners in the Great Midlands Fun Run will already have run by but many of those still toiling past our door, often raising money for local causes will need our encouragement to finish the last mile of the course. Join us as we cheer them on with hymns supported by our worship group.
Nkanfoa Methodist School in Ghana
Contact the office or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get hold of tickets for the buffet lunch on Saturday 22 June at the home of one of our members. Tickets are by donation (which can be Gift Aided) to Nkanfoa Methodist School and Church Aid, and every penny donated will go to the charity. Its principal aim at the moment is to complete some new classrooms for The Rev Alec Jones Memorial Methodist School in Nkanfoa, where some classes are bursting with as many as 65 children.
On Saturday 29 June we're planning to go for a gentle walk in the Kings Bromley area. Nothing arduous, we promise - a stroll through the countryside of about 5 miles. We will be starting from the Royal Oak in Kings Bromley (DE13 7HZ) at around 10.00 and finishing there conveniently at around 12.30 they will be open for lunch! Get in touch with the office if you would like details, directions or encouragement and we'll put you in touch with one of the walk leaders!
