Hornton Methodist Church

It has been a very interesting month so far. I had an annual meeting with Matt Green, Headmaster of Hornton School and he has decided not to renew the licence to use the Chapel four days a week as from September. This means that our income will seriously deplete. However it does mean that the Chapel can be used for other things during the week. If you have any ideas please let me know.

David and I attended the Circuit meeting last week and were forced to vote for the Circuit to put Upper Boddington Chapel on the market. Some of Upper Boddington congregation were there and gave an account of the last service. They said that it was a very enjoyable time, to be remembered. Please remember in your prayers all the faithful people in our circuit who work to keep our Chapels open and for those who have made the hard decision to close. Hopefully their membership will increase the numbers of other Chapels in the circuit.

Just to remind you that Hazel Stagg is holding bible study during July and August in each of our Chapels. The first one is at Chacombe on July 2nd. Details are on the noticeboard inside the Chapel. Also Julie Swann has been employed by the Circuit to work with young families and children.

Dr. Rev. John Reader has completed 40 years since his ordination and the Diocese are holding a special service in his honour to celebrate this, on Sunday next, July 1st, 10.30 am at Wroxton Church with lunch at the village hall. We have all been invited and after talking to most of our congregation last Sunday we have decided to cancel our morning worship at the Chapel on that day so that we can attend. If you would like to come and need a lift, I have two spare places in my car, however I will not be attending the lunch.

Every Wednesday at 8 am we pray for our Churches Together, the Benefice and Circuit, those in need and the wider world. Please pray with us.

On Friday afternoons there is Mother and Baby group in the Chapel during term time. Knit and Stitch is still on the agenda and we can now look to use the Chapel on whatever afternoon we like. The next monthly lunch is on Monday July 2nd and will again be the very popular salad bar. If you would like to come, please let me know for catering purposes Tel: 670507. We would love to see you. Also don’t forget Coffee, Cake and Chat every Friday from 10.30am – 12 noon.
