Late Summer 2008

August was a fairly quiet month for us. The bible study and ladies' meeting group did not meet, and several people were away on holiday. The supper club was very successful with over 30 people attending for an interesting talk about old trams and buses in Sheffield.
In September the Bible study restarted and we are currently studying the "I am" sayings of Jesus, whilst they are still fresh in our minds from the flower festival.
The ladies' meeting was visited by a magistrate to talk about the work of magistrates.
Friday September 19th was the "Have a cup of tea for Christian Aid" day and we opened for tea. Altogether over £80-00 was collected to send to Christian Aid.
The service on the afternoon of the third Sunday was a "Songs of Praise" type service which was entitled "From Wesley to Kendrick". We sang hymns and songs from the period indicated by the title and then joined in a barbecue.
The following week was our final supper club for the year when we dined on prawn cocktail, chicken chasseur with vegetables and tarte tatin with cream. Stuart Allen, president elect of the Wesleyan Reform Union, spoke after the meal.
After a hectic month, our junior members held a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan and £85-00 was raised.
