Hornton Methodist Church

We are nearing the end of 2018. For me there have been times I would rather forget but there have been good times too. The Chapel is still being used most of the time even though the school now book it for the hours they need. Of course our income has decreased but this arrangement has made it more flexible for others to use. For instance Knit and Natter is now on Tuesday afternoon from 2pm – 4pm. At the moment we are knitting and sewing items to sell at May Day for Chapel funds. Sadly one of our members, Barbara Greenhalgh passed away on 14th December. She was a dear friend and we will miss her very much both at Knit and Natter, Coffee Mornings and the monthly lunch.

Christmas with Churches together began with the Christingle Service at the Church and the proceeds from this went to The Children’s Society. All our Christmas services were most enjoyable and lots of village people attended especially on Christmas Eve to the Crib Service when even a puppy came. The collections from these Christmas Services raised over £400 which will be sent to ‘Save The Children Fund’.

The Church is now fully operational and the new toilet and kitchen is a great asset - the toilet was used quite a lot at the Crib Service.

Lindy and I still meet for prayers every Wednesday at 8 am. We would love to see you if you would like to join us but if you can’t then please join in wherever you are by praying at that time. 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.

Don’t forget Coffee, Cake and Chat every Friday from 10.30am – 12 noon. The next lunch will be on Monday 7th January 2019. Just let me know if you would like to come – we would love to see you.

Happy New Year
