July 2010

We met several times in July for a variety of events. The bible fellowship met twice to continue the study of the sermon on the mount. There will be no meetings of this group in August. The Ladies' Fellowship were entertained on a theme of "Two Short Planks", the subject being Irish music and dancing.

We were visited by the Coal Aston United Churches' Choir who presented a programme of "Music for A Summer's Evening". Donations were received for the Alzheimer's Society totalling £140.

The monthly Café church was on the theme of Fruit, led by our pastor Susannah.

The supper club ate a menu of: Cold minted pea soup, Coriander and lemon chicken followed by Victoria Plum crumble, coffee and mints. Dave Tucket spoke about the Christian Motorcyclists' Association.

Flower Festival

The annual flower festival was held on the first weekend of July. The theme was "The Ten Commandments", so of course, there were 11 displays. The arrangers met on Friday and worked very hard to prepare the church for Saturday morning. The displays were completed to a very high standard and were a credit to all involved. The chapel was open Saturday and Sunday and many people came from all over to view the displays.

On Sunday our services were led in the morning by Jonathan and in the evening by Susannah, our pastors. The morning service included an act of dedication for our new hymn books. More photographs are available on our website, follow the link at the side.
