Hornton Methodist Church

The Chapel is valued by the community and is used on most days of the week. The lending library is very popular and there are always new books for people to borrow. The book shelf is not big enough and David has on his list to do, a bigger but narrower shelf to house them all. He will also be selling books on May Day for chapel funds which may reduce the ever increasing stock. Also in the foyer is a box for donations to Banbury food bank. The WI are going to contribute and the much needed food will be taken to the food bank on the second week of each month. All donations of packets and tins will be gratefully accepted but please make sure that they are in date.

It is Hornton’s turn to host Womens World Day of Prayer in the Chapel on Friday 1st March at 2.30pm. Once again Andrea Harding Smith has arranged the service and as in previous years we will be joined by Shotteswell, Warmington, Ratley and Radway churches. The service has been written by women of Slovenia. Please try and come if you can. Please let me know if you need a lift. The next special service at the Chapel will be Mothering Sunday on March 31st. It has been arranged as an LA so if you have any ideas for the service such as a suitable favourite hymn or reading I would love to hear from you.

Our next Church Council meeting has been arranged for Saturday 2nd March at 2pm. Pam and Don have kindly offered their flat as the venue -15 Stanbridge House, Ruskin Road, Banbury. Please come along if you can.

Knit and Natter continues on Tuesday afternoon from 2pm – 4pm in the smaller room. We continue to knit and sew items to sell at May Day for Chapel funds. The Chapel will also as usual be providing teas. We hope to raise a good amount of money as our income is now depleted due to the school using it less. We have also arranged a Bingo on Friday 22nd March in the Pavilion. - Eyes down at 7pm. Prizes will be very welcome and please come if you can.

We still hold Wednesday prayers at 8 am. Our prayers are for our community, those who are sick or finding life difficult and for the wider world. We always end with the Lord’s Prayer. Please pray with us at that time if you can.

Don’t forget Coffee, Cake and Chat every Friday from 10.30am – 12 noon. The next lunch will be on Monday 4th March 2019. Just let me know if you would like to come – we would love to see you.
